ClearCase uses the RPC protocol which is hard-coded to a limit of 16 groups. When using a view stgloc for ClearCase repositories membership in more than 16 groups causes mkview to fail.

I wasn't done with the description .. for more info on the problem see this IBM technote


They offer a solution utilizing a wrapper program and an environment variable, detailed here.


Adding settings to the ClearCase repository configuration in QB to support this (checkbox to use setgroup-swap, which then enables a field to set the value of CLEARCASE_GROUPS) would greatly simplify our use of QuickBuild with ClearCase.
