Subject Can relocate from a svnserve based server that was 'svn sync' to a new http based server
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 03:08:21 GMT
I have numerous large svn repositories accessible by svnserve on an older linux server that
I'm moving to a new VMWare VM server using http authentication.  I'm using svnsync to transfer
the older "svn://" repositories to the new "http://" repositories.  The problem that I'm having
is trying to "relocate" the existing checked out "svn://" based working copy and point it
to the new "http://" repository.  An example existing WC:
svn@svna: svn info
Path: .
Working Copy Root Path: /home/svn/bin
URL: svn://svnrepo/BelAir/admin/main/svnserver/bin
Repository Root: svn://svnrepo/BelAir/admin
Repository UUID: ad8b7147-7818-0410-a3fb-ed15fa4e4e0d
Revision: 256
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Author: bwebster
Last Changed Rev: 256
Last Changed Date: 2012-01-30 16:38:51 -0500 (Mon, 30 Jan 2012)

I've tried numerous command syntax combinations like
svn relocate http://svnrepo2:18080/svn/admin/main/svnserver/bin svn://svnrepo/BelAir/admin/main/svnserver/bin
svn relocate svn://svnrepo/BelAir/admin/main/svnserver/bin http://svnrepo2:18080/svn/admin/main/svnserver/bin
svn relocate http://svnrepo2:18080/svn/admin/main/svnserver/bin .

This is the type of error message:
svn@svna: svn relocate http://svnrepo2:18080/svn/admin/main/svnserver/bin .
svn: E195009: The repository at 'http://svnrepo2:18080/svn/admin/main/svnserver/bin' has uuid
'65d03f8f-4f6b-4b7c-8505-7ddab04e9aed', but the WC has 'ad8b7147-7818-0410-a3fb-ed15fa4e4e0d'

What am I doing wrong (i.e. hopefully I'm doing something wrong).

Thanks Brent
