Flattenworkspace on MAIN/0 Workspace Errors with SBL-DAT-60292: Root workspace is not editable and SBL-GEN-00000: Unable to load message 0xffff (Doc ID 2192128.1)

Last updated on APRIL 30, 2018

Applies to:

Siebel Tools - Version 16.3 [IP2016] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 16.3 [IP2016] version, Configuration - Dev Env

Siebel IP206 provides Workspace functionality for managing Siebel Development activities. 

The EnableWorkspace command was run in this environment, but the FlattenWorkspace command is erroring out.

The developers have not started creating workspaces and making changes at this point, but the Siebel Administrator is testing the Workspace functionality.

Flattening workspaces in a Development Repository is an Administrator activity.  Flattening of workspaces collapses the MAIN branch into a single version with the latest view and subsquently deletes all developer workspaces.  

This is the same as going back to a workspace disabled repository. 

For more information on Workspaces in IP2016 see the following documenation.


The FlattenWorkspace is erroring with the following errors:  

c:\tools\bin\ siebdev /c tools.cfg  /u SADMIN /p SADMIN /d ServerDataSrc /FlattenWorkspace
