Problems importing SVN repo


Dave Nice (611) | asked Jun 07 '11, 9:10 a.m.
Hi there,

I'm trying to migrate my SVN repository into RTC. My SVN repo is version 1.5, my RTC client is 2.0.0.2 ifix6. I have tried this on a variety of different machines so it's not a problem isolated to one install. I'm running Eclipse 3.6.2, Subversive 2.2.2 with JavaHL 1.5.4 win32 binaries.

I've managed to narrow the problem down to a few plugins (so far - I'm still importing a few at a time). During the import, I'll receive an exception like the one below in my error log, and the import will stop immediately:


An internal error occurred during: "SVN".

Can you give me any pointers as to the kind of thing that might be causing this problem? Is there something I can change within the problematic plugins on SVN? Any debugging I can turn on to help?

I think we will be moving our installation to RTC 3 next week, so if the problem is definitely fixed in RTC 3 I could wait for that, although really I'd like to get imported in the next day or two.

Thanks in advance!

Dave

I've tried this with 3.0 ifix 1 now, too - still get the same error.

I've found this wiki page: https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/SCMImport

And used the update plugin with my 2.0.0.2ifix6 install, still getting the same error. (I've checked that the plugin has applied successfully by checking the plugin dates in my help/about/installation details).

I've enabled the debug output and I can see that the revision history stops at rev 1469 (which is about the time I got the error, when I was watching the GUI).

The last few revisions look like this:

Is it the -1 revisions that cause the problem? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Dave
