CA Harvest Software Change Manager


one of the package  in Prod contain highest version of  FileName.DLL ver x .
When we try to check out for update version.x dll for FileName throwing the error.

E03020191: FileName. ver x not working in the view. 

The version does not exist in the working view.




Release : 12.6 and newer

Component :


Harvest is designed in such a way that each state has its own data view containing any files that were included in the baseline at the beginning of the project, as well as any versions of files that were created in, or have passed through that state.  When a package is promoted into a state, the files in that package are "added" to the data view for that state.  When a packaage is demoted out of a state, the files in that package are "removed" from the data view for that state.

In this case, the version of the file in question had never "passed through" the state from which he wanted to check it out.  Either it was checked into the package in a later state, or was added via cross project merge in a later state.

To remedy the problem he needed to cause the package to "pass through" the state.  We accomplished this by promoting the package containing his version of the file to the state he needed, then promoting it back to it's original location.
