Help: NWDI 7.2 CBS build problem - initialize compartment-broken DCs

Hi all.

I am facing a problem with CBS build due to broken DCs - invalid dependencies. I have read all the articles and notse related to this issue, but cannot not solve is. Has anyone faced this issue or know a solution?

The problem:

In one SC I have a DC A, which used to have public part PP_A.

In another SC I have a DC B, which used to depend on public part PP_A of DC A.

As part of implementation, the PP_A in DC A was deleted and replaced by new public parts. The changes are checked in and activated in NWDI successfully.

Next, the DC B was corrected, its reference to PP_A was deleted and replaced with appropriate replacements.

I checked in the activity correcting the DC B. Activation fails, because CBS complains that DC B has invalid dependency. I assume that the CBS cache still holds the old sources.

I took the compartment where DC B is located and triggered a CBS Reinitialize compartment (which should discard the cached sources and load a fresh copy). The CBS Reinitialize compartment request fails too! The log shows the same message as the build log: invalid dependency.

It seems that during reinitialize, CBS checks the validity of the DCs in the compartment BEFORE it does clean its cache and refreshes from DTR.

In DTR, I can see the sources of DC A and DC B checked in correctly in the inactive branch, the .dcdef in DC B contains correct references to new public parts of DC A.

Does anyone know how to force CBS to refresh its sources from DTR where correct sources are checked in?
