Re: Shared storage for subversion repository

No - this will not work with NFS access from multiple hosts.

NFS (even with correctly working locking) does not work with Subversion
1.5 or lower because the underlying apr libraries used for transactions
still use DBM files - which require working locks.

You will eventually end up with repository corruption - particularly
likely when large commits are performed.

Shared storage for subversion repository
I am testing out an arrangement whereby the subversion repository is 
located on shared partition [ netapps partition ] -- and accessed by 
multiple subversion hosts via NFS. My plan is to have one of these hosts 
be used for read-write access and the rest for read-only access. I have 
tested this out and it looks O.K so far.
Q: Can this arrangement be used to have all hosts be capable of read-write 
access. Can subversion handle multiple access points on the same 
P.S: I am using FSFS
