      Description

      See http://hudson.361315.n4.nabble.com/ClearCase-error-after-user-canceled-previous-update-td2242261.html for the complete thread.

      A user canceled a job while it was in the middle of updating the view:

      Processing dir "xxx\domain\dev\config\com\xxx\spr\domain\search".
      ......SCM check out aborted

      The job is marked as a failure, which isn't unexpected. So far, so good.

      However, now ClearCase always thinks that this job's view is in the middle of an update, so subsequent runs fail:

      Started by an SCM change

      I believe this is the correct behavior on Hudson's part: it thinks an update is already in progress so to be safe it fails the build. The problem is that the view is forever wedged in this state.

      I'm wondering if this has something to do with how the original update was aborted. Is there a way to make sure the view is clean after the abort?

      I'm running Hudson 1.360 with Windows XP master and slaves, using version 1.2 of the ClearCase plugin with Base ClearCase 7.0.

      Thanks,
      Rich
