I was doing this all in the background via remote login to our SVN server, so I didn't monitor times. Some of our repos only took seconds because there wasn't much to load. The ones that involved more people and more changes took up to somewhere on the order of an hour or so. Usually, I'd just set it going and do other work while occasionally glancing at the remote desktop session to see if it had finished the current step.

We only allow https access and we only have a few users now, so monitoring and controlling access during the changeover was easy.

Besides, nobody was ABLE to access the BDB repositories because the more recent server builds that you can download don't include the BDB module. Simply stopping the old server software was enough to kill all access to the BDB repositories in our case.

Geoff
