  1. Hi, I couldn't find the answer to this elsewhere, but what is the largest recommended repository size for PlasticSCM? Both in terms of file numbers and disk space. Thanks, Richard

    Trying to clean up server repository

    Hi, So my team has been using a repo to push different builds for different projects and have run out of space on the drive we're using. We unfortunately just had everything on separate branches in a deployment repo. Since we don't really need the builds anymore is there an easy way to clean this up? We can't hard delete branches and I'm not sure what's going on with the blobs but that is where all the memory is taken up. Is there anything we can do about that?

    Local repository for Gluon Artists

    Hello. I'm new to Plastic SCM GUI. My question is: Where are the files located on the hard drive (Windows) that Plastic SCM records of the working project in Unity. I noticed that Plastic SCM takes up a lot of disk space when checking in. Now, my projects are also quite big. I'm also not using the cloud repository. Thank you.
  4. I am getting the following error trying to pull m,y repository back from the cloud after a reinstall of Windows and the plastic client: The sync process was unable to replicate the following branch: Branch: /main Operation: Pull Source repository: HidSharp@worldwizards@cloud Destination repository: HidSharp@local Error description: Padding is invalid and cannot be removed.
  5. Hi, Basically the topic says all. Has anything changed since 2012? http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/905-get-files-from-a-specific-branchlabel-without-a-workspace/ I just would like to obtain plain files and directories, without tracking them by Plastic. Best regards.

    Repo URL

    I'm curious how we build out a URL for our repositories. I saw that Plastic supported Git commands and was looking to use Unity Cloud Build with out project that is stored on a repository in the cloud service. I know that the connection is <Organization Name>@cloud.plasticscm.com but I don't know how to specify the repository in the URL. Can we even reference it by URL? Thanks for any assistance.
  7. Per the release notes for the new --filter command should allow me to specify a specific repository for triggers to fire on See http://www.plasticscm.com/download/releasenotes.aspx (I couldn't paste it, and the link java thing froze the page) 1. Create a testing repository called TestRepo (TestRepo1.jpg) 2. Setup a trigger which will simply fail for use in exploratory testing (TestRepo2.jpg) @echo off echo %PLASTIC_USER% : %PLASTIC_REPOSITORY_NAME% exit 1 3. Attempt to create a label: Success (TestRepo3.jpg) 4. Remove trigger and recreate without the --filter option (TestRepo4.jpg) 5. Attempt to create a label: Failure (TestRepo5.jpg) Notice that I'm using the correct version (TestRepo4.jpg) So, do I have the syntax wrong or is the filter option simply broken? Thanks, Ryan
  8. Hi! I have installed Plastic server and client on my Ubuntu server from Server says its version is My Windows client is the latest from downloads section ( - confirmed via cm version). When I try to connect to the server I get Is it normal that latest WIndows distribution is different from latest Linux distribution? I guess best fix would be to downgrade my client to 5.4.14?
  9. We have a workspace for a whole project, part of this turns out to be re-usable and as such we want to move it out of it's current repository into it's own and setup an xLink so that the existing repository uses the library from it's new location. We shall then also set up xLinks to use the library in 2 new project repositories. The question is how can I move a directory (with history) from one repository to another? One approach that I've considered is to copy the whole existing repository (somehow) and the move the relevant library directory to the root and delete the rest of the repositories' content. What's the best approach, is there support for this kind of refactoring? Andrew.

    Repository suddenly disappeared

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me here to relink my repository and possibly explain how this has occurred. The plastic server has been running fine for over a year with no issues. Today however it has lost our main repository, to be clear all other repositories are still listed in the list of Repositories except our main one. I've had a quick nose around the sql databases and the repositories database repository table also has no entry for our missing repository! There is however a rep_2 database which appears to be our repository. So is there a way I can relink this database into plastic? And any idea how this could have occurred? Any logs I should look at etc... Many many thanks for any pointers.... I'm using version of the plastic server with a MySQL backend.
  11. Hello, I've been testing out Plastic SCM for a few days (community edition), and I'm slowly getting comfortable with how it works. Coming from Mercurial, my first stumbling block was trying to differentiate between a repository and a workspace in Plastic SCM. If I had to explain it to another person, I would currently say something like, "the repository is the actual database of all changes while the workspace is your current 'view' (or 'slice') of the repository." Is this incorrect? I have another confusion point dealing with repositories and workspaces. In Mercurial, if I pulled from a network repository, I would get the complete history of the source code for the project. Suppose in Plastic SCM, I have a workspace of a network repository. I don't have a complete copy of the history, correct? Or do I? I.e., if I try to go to a different branch, does it require a network lookup in order to get more content from the repository? Suppose the network repository fails and permanently dies, is the workspace a legitimate backup for the repository (like in Mercurial where every repository is a complete backup of every other repository)? Sorry for the newbie questions. I am just having a hard time visualizing this part of Plastic SCM. Thanks for any insights you may have!
  12. I'm quite new to Plastic and finding my way so will probably look to this forum for help in doing that. So my question is this; in the free lessons on the Plastic website, the example sets up a new Repository and it is named after the project (something like Dokan). Does this mean that it is good practice to create a new Repository for each project? e.g. I have many clients/websites - should each client site/project have its own Repository or can I create one Repository and just make a separate Workspace for each project?
  13. Interesting! I've been using Plastic SCM for several months now and really appreciate the code organization it provides. Currently, all of my code projects are in separate repositories with a single workspace. I use the GUI interface to manage the code as a solo developer. Today I decided to test out creating a single repository for housing two different project workspaces and one common library. To simplify things, I created a Test root and three subdirectories: M:\MyCode\PlasticSCM\Test\TestLibrary M:\MyCode\PlasticSCM\Test\TestProject1 M:\MyCode\PlasticSCM\Test\TestProject2 One subdirectory for each workspace inside the repository. Plastic SCM may have out smarted me, as I used a single "Readme.txt" file for each subdirectory. I created the original, then copied and modified the file inside the two projects. Plastic SCM appears to have followed the path of the original file as it was reproduced and edited. The attached screen shot shows the resultant branch explorer. I also received "evil twin" errors and naming conflicts. My question, it I want to manage a common library separately from projects utilizing the common library, should I use a separate repository for the common library? I'd like to use the GUI interface, rather than the command line and I'd like to avoid XLinks. The reason I want to avoid XLinks is due to the numerous forum posts on XLink problems. Perhaps the XLinks should still be used? Thoughts? dgp
  14. Hey Guys - We run Plastic completely distributed. I know that when a repository is created you end up with a new DB named rep_1, rep_2, etc. Does Plastic care what the underlying DB names are for the repositories? For example, if I create a repository on my local server named 'NewYork', the actual DB created may be rep_4. Now, if I create 'NewYork' in my central repository server, the actual DB may be named rep_7. I expect Plastic does not care about rep_4 versus rep_7. As long as I setup my sync properly, NewYork->NewYork should be fine, right? Thanks, Tom

    All repositories show twice

    Why do all the repositories show twice, once each for the server in uppercase and lowercase?
  16. Continuing my exploration of PlasticSCM, I'm looking at browsing repositories on multiple servers. This may be for any number of reasons. To start, I'm working fully distributed. The client is open and connected to my local repository (GSOHL-Dxxxx:xxxx). However I want to view branches on another server. So I open the Repository Browser: From there, I right-click on the DMOONFIRE-Dxxxx:xxxx server and choose Branch Explorer. That opens a view of that server. Beautiful - I have a view of the branches on a 2nd server. But the UI at this point is confusing. This opened in a tab under my workspace that is open on my local server (GSOHL-Dxxxx:xxxx). The only way to know that this view is for something else is in the properties display when something is selected in it or in the tooltip on the "Branch Explorer" tab. Shouldn't this view of another repository on another server be a major tab all the way at the top or am I missing a concept here? Thanks. Greg
  17. Hi All, I have three repositories: - Libraries - Products - Dev In DevWkp, that points to the Dev repository I've created 2 xlinks using: cm xlink -w -rs Libraries / cs:0@Libraries@ cm xlink -w -rs Products / cs:0@Products@ I've done some work in DevWkp, created some branches, ci, co, done deliveries, labeled... All worked well until today when I tried once more to deliver work I've done in a sub-brach into its parent branch. Today, when I try to do this merge, only the changes I've made in the Libraries are coming up in the "merge from changeset" tab and none of the changes made in the Products repository. When I try to see the contibutors and explanations for the merge, Products is not there. It's like it doesn't know anymore that it has an xlink to Products. I've created two new workspaces: LibrariesWkp and ProductsWkp which respectively point to the Libraries and Products repositories. When I try to do the equivalent merge from changeset in these, I get for each the right list of changed items to merge. I'm using v4.0.239.0. Bug??? Why now? I've done the exact same thing multiple times before without any problem. Thank you, -Laurent.
  18. Our company hired a software house to develop our software. They have 20+ repositories in their SCM server. They use Plastic SCM Version I have downloaded and have yet to install it pending some research on the best way to get our repository installed. I have their servers settings, LDAP, etc.. I need to know the best method to setup Plastic-SCM so that we can install our repository from them. Do they use replicate to export the repository, and then what command do I use to install it. Or do I create a repository and then they export all branches and then I import? Then what is the best way to manage synchronizations with them. Command examples would be greatly appreciated. I’m still reading. Thanks Rob
  19. I recently installed Plastic SCM server on our corporate server and installed the client software on both my desktop and laptop computer while they were in the office and connected to the server. I tried to create a repository and I get the following message: Error: There has been an unexpected error "Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_object'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.object'. The statement has been terminated.". For more information check the server log. However, when I try to create a new workspace I get the following error message: No repositories found. Check that the repository server is running and that repositories exist. So it seems that there is already a repository with the same name however, for whatever reason, the client isn't seeing the repositories. What is the best way to resolve this? I think this occurred because I installed Plastic a little while ago and create some test repositories and I may have used the same name, which is now causing the naming conflict, but I can't figure out where I can manage the repositories from. If the client isn't seeing the repositories, how can I find them? Can I just delete the entire database and basically start from scratch? I am using version Thanks, Dominick
