I was wondering if someone would be able to answer this question. We have a
Windows 2003 Server with an ISCSI LUN. Do you know of any problems creating
Subversion repositories on such drives? I make reference to a note I saw in
the subversion book which follows:


Do not create your repository on a network share-it cannot exist on a remote
file system such as NFS, AFS, or Windows SMB. Berkeley DB requires that the
underlying file system implement strict POSIX locking semantics, and more
importantly, the ability to map files directly into process memory. Almost
no network file systems provide these features. If you attempt to use
Berkeley DB on a network share, the results are unpredictable-you may see
mysterious errors right away, or it may be months before you discover that
your repository database is subtly corrupted.


Thank you for your assistance...
