Praful,
 
Look at http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-09/0771.shtml. svnadmin load --parent-dir <arg> is your friend.

Subject: Multi-project repository setup and svn load problem

Hi,

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)

            /DEV

                        /Project A

                                    /branches

                                    /trunk

                                    /tags

                        /Projects B

            /QA

            /PROD

 

/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: 100-101.

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 directory

 

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.

 

Thanks,
