[OpenAFS] FSFS Subversion repository on OpenAFS 1.3.84 problems
Wed, 22 Jun 2005 12:34:41 -0400
We are running a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 AFS fileserver with several
Windows XP and Linux clients. Both the OpenAFS server and clients are all
version 1.3.84 and authentication is handled by KerberosV. We have a
Subversion repository that is being served via OpenAFS and it is problematic.
OpenAFS on the linux workstations usually requires a restart to see some or
all changes to the repository made by other workstations. OpenAFS on the
Windows XP clients occasionally requires a restart due to an inability to
access some files within the repository; access fails with an error message:
"The system cannot find message text for message number.....".
Though I have not been able to locate it, I recall reading a post to this
list about a similar problem with CVS + AFS. I believe the solution was a
patch to the client source. I'm about to try downgrading the server and
clients to 1.2.13. Is anyone else using either 1.2.X or 1.3.X OpenAFS with
Thanks very much,
