delete version in cms library

Hi

Can anybody tell me how to delete a particular version of a file in CMS library.

I am getting the error message when running the following command.
command:
cms delete generation/gen=105 LOGIN.COM

error:
%CMS-E-NOGENDELETED, no generations of element CMSLIB$DISK:[DEAF.APPS_CMS]LOGIN.COM deleted
-CMS-E-ISMEMBER, element generation belongs to a class
%CMS-E-ERRGENDELETIONS, 0 deletions of element generations completed and 1 error occurred

Shamseer,

this generation of the element is member of a class. You would need to this generation of the element from the class, before you can delete the element:

$ CMS REMOVE GENERATION/GEN=105 login.com class-name

It should be possible to use a wildcard class-name, if you don't know, which class this generation of the element is in.

Whether this operation makes sense in the context of your CMS library and release strategy, I cannot tell.

Hi Volker

Is there any command to find the class name of a particular file

Shamseer,

$ CMS SHOW HIST LOGIN.COM

should show the element history and should also list the INSERT operation, if this element has been inserted into a class.
