RE: RE: Will subversion repository work over iSCSI

Hi Jan,
Thanks for your reply. Interesting point about ext2/3, and yes
the server will probably be running say redhat 9 in that case it's
usually ext3 I believe.
Admitadly, I don't know much about iSCSI and I was hoping for someone
to tell me "yes I've done it and it works".
On the surface, it makes sense that iSCSI will work, since
it probably looks like a local device, but I was kinda hoping for
someone to give me that extra level of comfidence, since this is
going to host the future rnd devel. tree of the company ..
The documentation says that the restriction on filesystem comes from
the DB and the filesystem should implement
    - "Berkeley DB requires that the undelying filesystem implements strict POSIX
    locking semantics and more importantly, the ability to map files directoy into
    process memory"
So if iSCSI does the above I guess I'm OK, but I don't know that yet.
thanks - Gal.

Isn't iSCSI simply a storage device (like a disk connected as SCSI)? In that case I'd say it counts as a local harddisk.

If the server would be running Linux it would probably have ext2 or -3 or XFS as filesystem. Those are filesystems that always count as local.

Subject: Will subversion repository work over iSCSI

        Hi All,

        I'm trying to push subversion in my company and I'd realy
appreciate any help ..

        We're trying to evaluate subversion here but the IT manager is abit
worried that subversion works only over local disks since these are
usually not a part of the company backup scheme.

        He wants the repos. to sit on our NAS, which supports
iSCSI as well as NFS (I'm aware that the latter is not acceptable).

        So will subversion work over iSCSI ?

        We will probably take a low-cost linux x86 machine for the server (I plan
to allow access to repos. only via subversion server, no local access).

        Any help would be greatly appreciated !

        Thanks - Gal.
