Git duplicate advertisements

Recommended Posts

Hi I am getting the following message 

git://<server>/<Repository>: duplicate advertisements of refs/heads/main-integration-CI-WOM-2296

Whiich is not a duplicate I can see in Plastic however in the location identified by storage.baseDirectory entry in  the gitserver.conf  in one of the reference.mapping.conf files I can see 



Which seems to indicate there is a duplicate what can I do to fixe/rename the branch ?

I Reviewed the topic below and did not get a resolution from there ? What happens if I change the storage.baseDirectory entry in  the gitserver.conf ? Will that recreate the mappings ? 

Also I note from https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/gitserver/plastic-scm-version-control-gitserver-guide#RecreatingtheGitServermappingsfolder the warning but how do I recreate the mappings ?


Thanks Dieter

- If you remove the mappings (or change the storage base directory) the mappings will be fully re-created. If you do that, you will need to re-create the git repos to sync. Please more details at:  https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/gitserver/plastic-scm-version-control-gitserver-guide#RecreatingtheGitServermappingsfolder


- Also, the git server feature doesn't support re-writing the repo history. If you are using it, avoid renaming branches, rebase, merge fast-forward...
