Question asked to me by Build engineer to resolve below problem:
Checking-in objects (around 1000 or may be more) has become painful now. It takes at least 3-4 hours; ideally, it shouldn’t take more than one hour as compared to other synergy location.
The problem is version handlings in our database which creates long versions and to manage versions for so many objects I have to take back-ups, remove folders from directory and create completely new object versions which are really time consuming processes.
Risks in this process:
1. Even after doing so much manual process I cannot make sure whether I have checked-in all the required files.
2. Losing folders/directory history every time this is done.
3. If build failure happens after Rte task, is a tedious job to identify root cause
4. It may create parallels
5. Delay in release consequently final release
We need to grab CM Synergy administrator’s attention to resolve this issue ASAP otherwise I am not sure how Rte work will be evaluated. Rte already has enough processes to follow, adding such undesirable step is really discouraging
