When I start JBE on AIX, following message was displayed.

My RTC server is ver 3.0.1.x on AIX. What should I do to resolve this? I know below tips, but that is for RTC 2.0.0.2.

Problem detected: your filesystem supports symlinks but you are missing the Eclipse native support for themIf you are using Eclipse 3.5, then you may need to either use a pre-release Eclipse 3.5.2 development build, or switch to a Eclipse 3.4 RTC installation

Hi Natsumi.

Symbolic links are supported on AIX starting in 4.0. I don't believe they are supported on 3.0.1.x. See this work item:

    RTC CLI for 3.0.x is lacking symbolic link support on Linux/PPC (203798)

That work item refers to the SCM command line interface, but I think it applies to the JBE as well, since the issue is in the RTC filesystem component shared by both the CLI and JBE.

Thank you for your answer.

I understand that RTC 4.x was built on Eclipse 3.6.2 which supports symlinks, but 3.x was build on 3.5.2 which does not.

@jmlennon - RTC CLI for 3.0.x is lacking symbolic link support on Linux/PPC (203798) is resolved with resolution later. In that case are symbolic links supported in 4.0?

In general, "Resolved: Later" does not mean "this is resolved in a later release", but rather "this is Resolved as being something we will look at Later (i.e. not now)".   So you cannot infer from this work item whether or not sym links are supported on Linux/PPC in the 4.0 release.   But if you look in the "Related" links, you will see that this was fixed in 4.0 by work item 202296.

Hello Natsumi,
there is existing topic on the forum regarding symlinks and AIX: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/104113/rtc-unable-to-create-symbolic-link-during-load-on-aix Can you check it?

Best regards,
