how to enable distributed SCM ?

shruti joshi (1003034) | asked Sep 04 '13, 2:08 a.m.

   While implementing cross repository connections, I forgot to enable Distributed SCM property as "true". Now both the RTC servers are friends now, but not able to send change request to each other due to DSCM disability. Can you please tell me how to enable DSCM property after making two servers as friends. I am also attaching snapshots of my problem. error while delivering changes to other server not able to set DSCM property on "true"

  Also, after making the two servers as friends, the change requests are not accepted by the one server to another server even after authorizing/approved the provisional key and hence I am not getting the approved key with application name being displayed in Consumers (Inbound) > Authorized key, section. 

  Regarding this problem I am attaching the snapshot for the same:
Friends (Outbound) section Consumer (Inbound) section

As also described in there are permissions the user needs on both servers. The Friend relationship is only to be able to view a work item connected to a change set on the other server. I would suggest to thoroughly read the article and follow the steps it describes.

As described in you have to enable distributed SCM.
In the CCM Advanced properties search for Enable Distributed SCM, set the property to true and save.

I was able to find it easily (Turn off case sensitivity if you search with CTRL-F in FireFox)
Please note: You can only use Distributed SCM if you have Developer or Enterprise Developer licenses and they are not mixed with 10 Free or Developer for Workgroup licenses.
