cleartool: Error: Can't change to a group (ccusr1) that is not in the VOB's group list.

as vobadmin

ct protect -chgrp ccusr1 -chmod 755 /vobs/test_vob
cleartool: Error: Can't change to a group (ccusr1) that is not in the VOB's group list.
cleartool: Error: Unable to change protection on "/vobs/test_vob".

Solution:

Add the correct group to the VOBs group list
cleartool protectvob -add_group <group name> <vob-storage-dir-pname>

Example:

As root:

/var/apps/7.0.1/linux_x86/clearcase/linux_x86/bin/cleartool protectvob -add_group "ccusr1" /vobstore01/test_vob.vbs
This command affects the protection on your versioned object base.
While this command is running, access to the VOB will be limited.
If you have remote pools, you will have to run this command remotely.
Pool "sdft" appears to be protected correctly.
Pool "ddft" appears to be protected correctly.
Pool "cdft" appears to be protected correctly.
Protect versioned object base "/vobstore01/test_vob.vbs"? [no] yes
Do you wish to protect the pools that appear not to need protection? [no]
VOB ownership:
owner vobadmin
group dev
Additional groups:
group ccadm
group ccusr1
[root@clearcase apps]#


as vobadmin

ct protect -chgrp ccusr1 -chmod 755 /vobs/test_vob
Changed protection on "/vobs/test_vob".
