good afternoon,

I'm using the command lscm in a step Build Forge but does not work. What to do to run the commands lscm?

This is my code:

SET PATH=C:\Archivos de programa\IBM\TeamConcert\scmtools\eclipse
lscm login -r https://serv:9443/ccm -u bforge -P bforge -c
lscm create workspace -r https://serv:9443/ccm -s Stream BuildSpace
lscm logout -r https://serv:9443/ccm

lscm will start a daemon process, and SCM is a one shot deal.  The daemon will load the SCM files and will reuse them on subsequent calls.  That is the reason it can act poorly in automated environments.  If you are using many commands together and decide to use lscm, make sure to clean up the daemon process at the end of the script.  That will make sure the environment is clean for the next run.

Hi,

Do you have to use lscm? I would recommend using the 'scm' tool instead (same directory). While I understand there are performance considerations for lscm, I have found that its behavior in some environments like Ant exec task and others is not always what is expected.

Hello,

Is the source for the lscm and scm tools available? We would like to better understand how exactly lscm works. It's not behaving well in our environment, with lots of lscm processes that never die. We would like to understand how the lscm daemon works, how it decides when to shutdown itself, for how long it waits for further commands before shuting down, etc.

Thanks,
Claudio Neves

Hi Claudio,
As far as I know lscm is intended as interactive tool where user sit in front of the console and controls the session. I have found that scm (having same capabilities) is much better for non-interactive uses (like automation e.g. Build Forge or unstable sessions that an be interrupted leaving stray sessions active).

Regards,
Jakub
