Built-in data integrity checks for ClearCase data

Dear IBM/Rational support,

We need a new feature to ensure the integrity of ClearCase data,
especially for source containers. We have found out that even
very simple manipulations of source containers are NOT detected
by the available checks (dbcheck and checkvob). For details
please see the log file attached to PMR 33389,SGC,724.

Within "git" for example all objects are accessed using a SHA-1
checksum and therefore any modifcation is detected.

One possible solution for this problem is described in a
developerworks post from May 2012 (see URL below for details):


Kind regards
