RE: Multi-project repository setup and svn load problem

Hi Dale,

Thanks for the reply but that's exactly what I had tried earlier too, I
got the same error as:


svnadmin: Error opening db lockfile

svnadmin: Can't open file
/db.lock': No such file or directory


Here is the cmd I used:


[subvert@testls52 subversion]$ svnadmin load
--parent-dir DEV/Audiocontrols <


Where DEV/Audiocontrols is the folder hierarchy I need to maintain. But
I am confused as to what should I use as the virtual root name
(--parent-dir DEV/Audiocontrols)

I even tried using only Audiocontrols but it didn't work.


I was thinking that the only option is to create repository within a
repository to achieve what I needed.

Any other suggestions on how to do this?

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

        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: 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.
