Subject "Expected format '3' of repository; found format '5' "
Date Tue, 08 May 2018 18:49:51 GMT

I'm migrating an SVN server to a new server. The old server is running an
ancient version of Redhat and version 1.4 of subversion.

The new server is running CentOS 7 and version 1.7 of subversion.

I'm creating some test dump files to copy from the old server to the new
one. When I go to run "svnadmin dump >" I get this
error on some of the repos:

"svnadmin: Expected format '3' of repository; found format '5' "

I get the same error if I try to run this command remotely as well - "svn
list svn://svnserver/data/subversion/"

Some generate a normal result, and some generate the above error. It seems
the newer the repo, the more likely it will push that error.

I'm guessing it's related to differing version numbers between what the
repos were created with and the current version of the svn software.

What is needed to get around this error?
