configuration management Questions

You can't rely on a developer to manually check it in because they can check in the load module and the source module from a directory other than where they checked it out from.

I have baseline software code that I maintain in the the trunk of a cvs instance.

I wish to make client specific changes to that trunk that I can then merge only at the time of build and deploy both the baseline code and client specific code. However, I don't want the client specific code to ever become part of the baseline (trunk). What is the best way to do this?

Also, the number of files that I want to change with client specific changes is a very small percentage of the total number of files.

And, there would be more then one client each with their own specific changes

Thanks.

We have a single Oracle DB instance hosting around 20 repositories. These repositories in turn are mapped to around 60 projects(environments). Now there is a requirement to get only one repository (mapped to around 4 proejects / environments). Can this be achieved..if so how?

Appreciate any help in this regard.

I was wondering if anyone has recently migrated from ClearCase to Subversion, or if anyone has been looking into migrating?

As well as how big the development teams using it are, and how many projects are running in parallel and have dependancies upon one another or shared/common code that needs to be merged with multiple streams of code/projects.

If so, please could you let me know as we are looking to do the same, and would like to know about other peoples experiences/challenges/decisions etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hayley

in clearcase, while checking in an element a prompt is made to user to enter the doc_status attribute. how is this done?

Which trigger is invoked to prompt the user to enter the doc_status during check-in?

We're planning a Dimensions deployment into a 3 domain environment (prod, test and dev).

Just trying to find out some of the more technical details about the deployment.

1) How do the clients/ide plugins talk to the main server? Ports/protocols?

2) How do the agents talk to the main server? Do they run under windows accounts? and those accounts are granted the r/w permissions on the deployment folders?

Thanks

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am using following hco command for checking out the files from harvest for building project in Synchronize mode,

[b]<exec executable="C:\Program Files\CA\AllFusion Harvest Change Manager\hco.exe">
<arg line="-b '${application.harvest.broker}' -ced -usr '${application.harvest.userId}' -pw '${application.harvest.password}' -en '${application.harvest.environment}' -st '${application.harvest.state}' -vp '${application.harvest.projectdir}' -r -op '${application.harvest.pc}' -sy -cp '${application.checkedout.src}' -s '${application.harvest.filepattern}'"/>
</exec>[/b]

Untill yesterday it is working perfectly.

[i]Yesterday an update was happened to the harvest by the harvest admin, that is they added new process named "Check Out - Concurrent" to the harvest.[/i]

So after that if I am running my ant build using the above command (hco command in bold) results as following,

[b]I00060040: New connection with Broker HARVPROD established.
An invalid check out mode was given for process: 'Check Out - Concurrent'.[/b]

Can someone point me to an explanation of the file naming convention that Dimensions uses for the Item Library? I need to make a correlation between what's in the database and what exists on the file system.

Thanks,
David
