  1. I have a scenario where my Workspace is in a NAS (shared SMB Drive). I created the workspace from Host-A: host-a$ cm workspace create my.workspace /mount/nas/repos/my.workspace/ --repository=my.workspace@myplastic@cloud I then switched to using host-b using the same workspace location: host-b$ cm workspace create my.workspace /mount/nas/repos/my.workspace/ --repository=my.workspace@myplastic@cloud But when I do this I now see that all the content in my folder is marked as changed. Is there a proper way to do this - to move a workspace to a new machine and just have it work on the new machine? Am I just doing something wrong? Thanks!
  2. @mjensen- I realize I'm coming into this way late (a year!!). The file is /opt/plasticscm5/server/network.conf. You may have to create it if it does not exist. Note that for most situations you'll want to use port 8087 and 8088 rather than the 8084 and 8085 that was mentioned previously (those may be internal to Codice?). So you're network.conf should look like this: [ { "port": 8087 }, { "security": "ssl", "port": 8088 } ] @S_Luis - can you please clarify the ports that are in your post (8084, 8085) vs what was recommended to me by Codice support (Carlos) who suggested I use 8087 and 8088. Does it matter what the ports are? Also, is this documented somewhere that I missed? Thanks!
  3. +1 I find Choco to be incredibly helpful for all my local and system-wide sysadmin tasks. It would make things incredibly more convenient to have `choco install plasticscm-client; choco install plasticscm-server;` etc.
  4. Figured this may be of help to someone, since the documentation is a bit sparse. Maybe there's a way to submit documentation pull-requests or updates? Installing on Ubuntu 20.10 gave me a few errors, so here's the process that worked for me and everything went well after: PlasticSCM includes a GTK-based interface in some versions, which relies on libgnome2.0. However, Ubuntu 20 does not have a way to install libgnome2.0. They must, instead, be installed from an older repository, bionic. Set up the bionic repos to get libgnome 2.0. Create /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bionic-oldlibs.list file and add into it: deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic universe Then update the apt list; sudo apt-get update You may receive a No Pub-key error (or something similar). Get the public key signature and add it into the apt-key: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys $key The $key value comes from running the command and getting the error W: GPG error: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 So in my case this became: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 Then run the installer: sudo apt install plasticscm-complete Reading package lists...

So let's create the containing folder: sudo mkdir -p /opt/plasticscm5/mono/etc/mono/ sudo apt install plasticscm-complete This then should work and install everything. The relevant services will be running on ports 7178, 7179, 8087 and 8088 by default. These are based on the default port definitions in the `/opt/plasticscm5/server/server.conf` and `/opt/plasticscm5/server/network.conf` files. But how is the service running? Some of the plasticscm documentation refers to /etc/init.d/ but Ubuntu switched over to using systemd based systemctl commands a few versions back. Check the status of the service by systemctl status plasticscm-server You may also want to add users from the command line. Some of the documentation refers to the `umtool`, which has now become a parameter of the plasticd application: plasticd umtool This should give you the command-line options to proceed Finally you'll want to restart the plasticd service: systemctl restart plasticscm-server Hopefully this helps someone to not have to do the random searches I had to
