VSS to SVN migration - error in loading dump file

Postby sriranjanik » Sat Apr 30, 2011 11:57 am

Hi

I am trying to migrate a VSS repo with full history to SVN.
Dump file is created successfully but I get error in loading the dump file in to an empty SVN repo.

Error:
svnadmin: File already exists: filesystem 'new\db'

Please help... Also, pls clarify if SVNImporter supports VSS migration if branches are present...

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I think the problem is the command you are using to laod the dump file.
What command did you use to load the dump file?

Best Regards,
Benjamin

Hi Ben

I am currently inside the folder where both the dump file and the SVN repo are present!!
$ svnadmin load dump < repo
where "dump" is the dump file name and "repo" is the empty SVN repo

I have already run SVNImporter tool on a different VSS repo (without branches) and also successfully loaded the dump file in to a new SVN repo.
Please let me know if you require further information. Thanks in advance.

You've got it backwards. The command should be

svnadmin load repo < dumpfile


Return to “Polarion SVN Importer (Repository Converter)”
