Hi, My post of 28th refers. This is a further request for someone to please provide me with some guidance regarding moving / re-locating of CVS and CVSNT repositories. I have 2 repositories on a Windows machine, using CVSNT, and one on a Linux machine, using CVS. I wish to transfer these repositories in their entirity, including history, to a new Windows-based machine on which I have installed CVSNT. Thus far I have been told that as far as CVSNT is concerned, a Windows copy of the repositories on the Windows source machine can be placed on the new machine. As far as the repository on Linux is concerned I was advised to use FTP to transfer the repository to the Windows machine. I tried this, but after completion noticed a large difference between the number of files and folders on the source and target. My gut feel tells me that I would first need to create the 3 new repositories on the target machine, and then use some tool to import the 3 existing repository's contents into the 3 new repositories. Could someone please provide me with further guidance as I have done much Internet searching and reading yet have not been able to clarify what is required to get this done properly. Many thanks, Chaz Chaz.Virtual at gmail.com
