Lars,

I believe the CC connector is now in the base RTC download. There is not
a separate download for it any longer.

This is correct, just download RTC and you've got the CC Connector.

FYI, I opened WI 38670 to improve error message :)
I will let other people troubleshoot the issue :)

If you type in anything, or even just let the page default to the text it
chooses, you should be able to
hit Next. The only way you can't hit next, on that page, is if the edit
field is empty. I just took a
look at the code and confirmed that.

As for the error message, here's the deal: in previous incarnations, we did
syncs on the client, in
a background job. Now all syncs are done on the server in a build job. You
need to define a
ccsync user that has all permissions in the team area where you'll be
importing to. The ccsync
user is the pseudo-user we use to do the actual sync.

We should certainly have a better message, thanks Christophe for submitting
the work item.

Yes, adding the ccsync user to the team solved the problem with the error message. Thanks a lot Brian!

Regarding the Next button, there is no way I can use that. It has simply decided to stay greyed out. Not that it matters that much, I still end up at the Edit ClearCase Paths page (referred to as Select ClearCase Paths page in the online help btw) after clicking Finish.

Next problem: the Edit ClearCase Paths page, where I am not able to use the Browse Paths button. I get another "Jazz ClearCase Interop" popup saying:

Unexpected Error Message

Reason:
An InvocationTargetException was thrown while 'Fetching children of
workspace...'

Details:
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
Could not list files for the pathname:null/jazz_test_JAZZ_TEST_BASE_8dbfd....

The "null" in pathname above seems suspicious. It seems I should see my view storage location path there! But that one seems to be ok: In ClearCase Workspace Synchronization view, I right-click on my ClearCase Workspace, select Properties and can see that com.ibm.rational.wvcm.ct.STG_LOC i set correctly.

What else could be wrong?

I'm not sure yet what's going on with the Browse button, but you can always
enter them
manually (TIP: if you have a lot of VOBs mounted, this will be a *lot*
faster; alternatively
only mount the VOBs you care about while doing this browsing).

The syntax is:

<vob>\<folder> ... <project_folder>

where <project_folder> is a folder containing a ".project" file.

I forgot, you're using M4. We changed the flow so that on that page, all
you can do is hit Finish.
It's the end of the wizard. Glad the tip about ccsync helped.

And yes, you should end up with the sync view appearing and then the Edit CC
Paths page.

Yes, the "null" in the pathname is bad. It should be the mvfsroot, i.e.
the result of "cleartool pwv -mvfsroot" (commonly "M:").

Just to check, what do you get when you run "cleartool pwv -mvfsroot" on
your machine? I've filed this as workitem 38748.

Cheers,
Geoff
