Multi-project repository setup and svn load problem

From: Gupta, Praful <pgupta_at_intercall.com>

I am trying to set up a multiple projects single repository layout for
some of our projects. Here is a sample layout of what I need:

/Development (repository root)


                        /Project A




                        /Projects B




/Development is the root for the single repository which has the project
folders /DEV, /QA, /DEV/Project A. I have this repository layout already
setup. I tried to follow the steps outlined in the svn book pages:

I have dump files from different repositories and I need to load them up
as Project A or Project B. But whenever I try to use svnadmin load it
gives an error stating:


svnadmin: Can't open file '/DEV/Project A/format': No such file or


I tried copying the format file into the Project A folder but then it
gave me another error:


svnadmin: Error opening db lockfile

svnadmin: Can't open file '/Development/DEV/Project A/locks/db.lock': No
such file or directory


It seems that in order to do something as outlined in the book, you need
to have the target setup as a repository rather than a project folder.
Is this true or am I missing some steps?


I tried using svn import by setting up a temp repository for Project A
and then trying to import it into the layout but it failed again giving
the same error.


Plz advise on how to load dump files from different repositories in to a
multi-project repository where there are projects folders rather than
being a repository within a repository setup.


The server is setup on a Unix box and running svnserve.
