It's possible that your server isn't new enough to support merge-tracking.
What version of Subversion is running on the server?
The minimum server version for merge-tracking is 1.5.
Your client should also at least be a 1.5 version and preferably 1.7.
Another way this can happen is if you fail to commit the svn:mergeinfo
property the Subversion client creates during a merge.
If you know the revision range you've already merged but failed to record
you can run the same merge as a 'record-only' merge. Tortoisesvn has a
checkbox for this in the merge dialog somewhere. A record-only merge will
create the svn:mergeinfo property but not actually merge any changes to
working files. Of course you must make sure that whatever revisions you
merge as record-only have already been merged. Else you're likely to
encounter more merging troubles down the road.
BTW, the more common use case for record-only merges is to block revisions
you don't want to merge by marking them as already merged, see
