Running 4.1.2.18185 for client and server but have seen this on previous versions.

Scenario - User A tries to rename a folder in which User B has a file checked out.

The operation fails with a "Check In/Commit transaction failed" message. So far so good.

However the folder is renamed on the User A's local machine and the vault client on User A's machine shows the new name. User B's machine still shows the folder with the original name. Restarting Vault client on User A's machine does not fix this.

We've reproduced this several times on a number of machines.

Thanks,

Tim

The transaction is most likely still in the pending change set.

Find the transaction in the pending change set, right-click and choose Undo. This should undo the rename.

I'll log a bug to look into this behavior, since a Get Latest get the file but renames it, even though it's not renamed in the repository.

Thanks Linda, I hadn't noticed it was still in the pending change set.

Might it be worth rewording that message box to make it clearer that the change can be undone?

Kind regards,

Tim

Glad this is resolved. Yes, the message would be helpful, as users may not realize they can undo the change.
