Re: Windows 10 November 2019 security updates affecting file:// to Win2003 shares?

Hi Nathan;

We did not go down that route -- we simply moved our repositories to a newer-edition Windows file server, and used a DNS alias so that the end-users weren't affected for too long. It is part of our ongoing server refresh plan to move to a svn://- or https://-based solution in the near future, but we needed a short-term fix

The email to users@ was more a PSA than request for help, and also to see if my findings wre matched by anyone else.

Thanks, though.

J.

Have you considered running svnserve on that Windows Server 2003 box and then accessing the repository from your client machines via the svn:// protocol?

This will require either re-checking-out working copies on the client machines or updating their URLs with svn switch --relocate (or through TortoiseSVN).
