SCM command-line checkin failing "Error during upload" on files of greater than 128 kB in size when run on server host

I have an RTC 4.0.6 server running on a Linux host.

I am using the command line tool to checkin a file (having first successfully run the login, load, and status commands). I'm running these commands locally on the server host.

Whenever I try to run the checkin command for a file that is larger (even by 1 byte) than 128 kB it fails with the following message...
Failed to upload File /somepath/somefile
Problem running 'checkin':
Error during upload
  • Any file that is 128 kB or smaller will checkin fine on the server host.
  • I can deliver files greater than 128 kB from my Eclipse client running on a machine other than the server host.

So this problem is specific to running checkin of >128kB file when using running locally on the server host.

Anyone have suggestions on what could be causing this failure?

I've taken a look in the log files and haven't found any errors in the server log, and no more useful details in the scm log.

I've managed to resolve this. Here's how...

I switched on logging for the scm client (more details here:

Then I trawled through the log files and found an additional error...
    <message>&lt;&lt; "                    "errorMessage": "CRRTC5038W: The versioned content service temp directory has been deleted.  This often can happen if the property 'vcs.tmpdir' is a directory within \/tmp.  Please contact your server administrator.",[\n]"</message>
I checked the value for Versionable Content Temporary DIrectory (CCM, Advanced Properties) and it was set to the default of /tmp/versionedcontentservice. I looked on the host and this did not exist.

Once I created this folder (and set the permissions correctly) the problem I was experiencing went away.
