RE: Linux to Windows

I have dumped my repository files from LINUX using

svnadmin dump mmc > dump_mmc

I have copied all the dump files to the windows server and tried to
import them but I can't get it to work.

C:\svn>svnadmin create mmc --fs-type bdb

C:\svn>cd mmc

C:\svn\mmc>svnadmin load mmc < dump_mmc
svnadmin: Can't open file 'mmc\format': The system cannot find the path

I have copied the dump file into c:\svn\mmc and have even tried copying
the 'format' file over from LINUX to the c:\svn\mmc directory. No luck.

Right. And when you "svnadmin create" your new repository on your
Windows box, note that it will by default *not* be a BerkeleyDB
repository but an FSFS repository. I recommend FSFS; it's less to
worry about. If you really want a BDB repository, use "svnadmin
create --fs-type bdb".
