Subject Re: Migrating from 32 to 64 bit
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 17:55:31 GMT
Thank you for your answers. Currently I've setup svnsync and I am doing test
run of synchronizing repositories. I will have a small window to migrate
repositories. Using the svnsync gives me possibility to do major job before
the change window and then final sync during the change.

In this step I have some doubts whether users will have possibility to
relocate their local copies to new repository on new server. The first step
of sync procedure is to create fresh repository, I am afraid that it will
have different ID and svn will say “its not the same repository”

I will test it but you are welcome to give me your comments.



I have about 400 repositories to migrate. Svnsync showed about 60 -70 hours
to sync all repos.



Thanks much
