Hi,
I am tried to create remote SVN repository dumpfile using command  "svnrdump dump https://servr/project >c:\tmp\server.dump"
 it created dump file using "SVN-fs-dump-format-version: 3" format.
while importing into RTC it giving error message that Unsupported dump file version:3.

i am using RTC 5.0.2 server & client.

Please let me know how to solve this issue, svnrdum command dosen't have option to disable --dletas parameter.

Thanks,
Sachin

svnadmin dump with --deltas option will generate header 'SVN-fs-dump-format-version: 3'.

So my bet is that RTC importer will try to process the dump file with svndumpfilter, which due to an existing bug at least in SubVersion version 1.4.3, can't deal with VN-fs-dump-format-version: 3. and will throw out error like:

Unsupported dump file version: 3.

Can someone confirm thta Jazz importer do call svndumpfilter to process the dump file?

If it is true, then I'd like to see this to be documented in RTC help.

Versions 1 and 2 are supported. Version 3 encodes file contents changes
as deltas. If you generate a dump file without deltas (i.e. do not
specify the delta flag when issuing the dump command) you should end up
with a version 2 dump.

No, RTC does not rely on svndumpfilter. It just doesn't implement the
delta stitching so you need to leave of the --deltas flag when
generating the dump.
