RE: Multi-project repository setup and svn load problem

Yes, of course I did that. But I am gonna try something else. I am gonna
recreate the dump file from a fresh repository and try doing the steps
again. I hope it works this time.

Thanks,

Praful

Did you do:

 

svn mkdir /DEV

svn mkdir /DEV/Audiocontrols

 

before attempting the load? You have to have the directory hierarchy
already in place in order for it to work.

        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
'/usr/local/SourceBases/subversion/ISDevelopment/DEV/Audiocontrols/locks
/db.lock': No such file or directory

         

        Here is the cmd I used:

         

        [subvert@testls52 subversion]$ svnadmin load
/usr/local/SourceBases/subversion/ISDevelopment/DEV/Audiocontrols
--parent-dir DEV/Audiocontrols <
/usr/local/SourceBases/subversion/dumps/full.dump

         

        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?

        Thanks

        Praful,

         

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

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,
