Migrating hard and symbolic links from ClearCase to RTC

James Mislay (117) | asked Sep 11 '17, 7:44 a.m.

 Does RTC (V6.0.3) support hard and soft symbolic links?  We are migrating source code from ClearCase (V8.0) using the baseline importer to RTC.  We have both hard links and symbolic links in our current ClearCase code base.  How does the baseline importer handle both hard links and symbolic links?  Is there some special post processing that needs to be performed in RTC after using the baseline importer?

 RTC does support symbolic links (as does the baseline importer), but does not support hard links (i.e. it will consider two hard links to the same file as being two different files).   Note that RTC only supports symbolic links in a sandbox if that sandbox is located on a file system that supports symbolic links (i.e. Unix and some flavors of Windows file systems).
