You may want to read this thread regarding SANS:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-01/1331.shtml

It appears as though you should be fine using a SAN using a central storage
location assuming you use FSFS instead of BDB.

Beyond that, without knowing more details of the configuration of your
clustered environment, we probably can't give you a very good answer as to
the viability of your question.

However, if instead you were planning on having multiple storage points, SVN
does not support that (however, SVK, the link I provided earlier does).

Thanks so much for getting back to me. We have Subversion is installed on a
Sun server (v480), running Solaris 9. We have to periodically take the
server down for patching/maintenance. And what if a cpu goes out or it
needs another part replaced? Anyway, we want to have the data respoitory
installed on a SAN. Our production servers run in a clustered environment
which means we can roll the application to any of the servers in the cluster
without experiencing any downtime.

So you're saying this isn't possible?

It sounds like what you're looking for is repository replication (multiple
servers, same data) in which case SVN doesn't support this. (Though SVK,
which is built on top of Subversion does: http://svk.elixus.org/)

Maybe it would be good for me to ask ... why exactly do you need to take the
server down? Is this a frequent event? And if so, why?

When one server needs to be taken down I need Subversion data files to
be accessed on the second server.
Can anyone direct me to the appropriate documentation?
