Is "d:\tca.vbs" the path to your VOB storage directory? Then that's the problem.
You have to give the path to a ClearCase view, e.g. "d:\MyViews\tca_view\tca" (if "tca" is the VOB you want to export/convert).

Hope that helps,

Looks like your question thing at the end of the post worked. Also not having to sign in is nice too. Good job. Nice list. Thanks.

Hi Anatol

I too am getting this error. Should projectPath point to the view folder on the CC server i.e viewName.vus? Or should it point to folder from which I work out of i.e.U:\viewName?

Project path variable should point to the clearcase vob/directory that you want to import. Eg:


Here "rusharma_view" is the viewname present under L: (do cleartool setview rusharma_view under L: on windows) and "cm" is the name of the clearcase vob that I want to import. (.vbs extension for vob or .vws extension for view is not required).

On unix this would be something like:

Hi All- I was about to install/configure polarion for the svnimport from clearcase without any major issue, besides by java version. I do however have a question around what is being exported.

For eaxmple: In my clearcase Project explorer, I happen to have more than one Project VOBS or PVOB, but for the purpose of this example I will only be concerned with one. lets call it "Test_PVOB".
In Test_PVOB if viewed from clearcase project explorer you will see multiple projects and sub-projects, each with multiple views. Now that I am using Polarion to migrate this to my new subervsion server i must first configure the config file and run > run.bat full .

In the cc.projectpath is set to only one view and one vob. The concern I have, is what view to you select giving that you have 100's and multiple VOBS. Does it matter where this view is located? The readme never really says if it needs to be a specific view from a specific project? By using this one view does it give you EVERYTHING within my Test_PVOB? if yes, ignore my 2nd concern.

Secondly, since I have 10 VOBS, does this mean i have to do this process 10 times using the same view but different VOB names?
cc.projectpath = DriveLetter/localview/VOB#1
cc.projectpath = DriveLetter/localview/VOB#2
cc.projectpath = DriveLetter/localview/VOB#3 and so on..

Return to “Polarion SVN Importer (Repository Converter)”
