Will RTC Support import of SVN Incremental Dumps to same Component

 Hi All,

As our SVN Code dump is huge and around 22 GB,we are taking incremental dumps of approximately 5GB each, Will RTC support this import of incremental dumps to the same component.

Thanks in Advance,

Yes. The wizard has options where can specify a range of revisions to import. It also can detect and continue importing from where the last import ended. This is definitely supported because importing tags and branches will require subsequent imports.

Tim can you clarify. Can you take an incremental dump of the SVN repository and import it or do you have to take a full dump of the SVN repository and import it incrementally?  I believe it is the latter but the question seems to be asking about incremental dump files.

Oops, sorry. I didn't read the question correctly. A full dump is supported and the importer can continue. Incremental dumps aren't supported because the data from before is required to determine where in history to continue the import.

 Thank you,

Can you clarify if RTC supports SVN Incremental dumps since we are getting errors, we have taken 2 incremental dumps from SVN and when we do the import of 2nd dump to the same component, RTC throwing change set files are being missed.

The following is used to create SVN Dump

$ svnadmin dump myrepos -r 0:1000 > dumpfile1
$ svnadmin dump myrepos -r 1001:2000 --incremental > dumpfile2  

dump1 export successful but dump2 export throwing errors.
