Hey Gang,

I’ve gotten my enlistment set and approved through autosecure as:

//depot/... //a-mattk-YonaSeverManagementDepot/...

//depot/sources/test/... //a-mattk-YonaSeverManagementDepot/sources/test/...

 

When I try to execute:

sd sync -f -w //depot/sources/test/…

I get:

//depot/sources/test/... - no permission to protected namespace; see 'sd help permissions'.

I do have access to the main portion of the depot because when I execute sd sync -f -w //depot/...

I’m getting a different result from earlier as:

Request too large (over 200000); see 'sd help maxresults'.

Meaning it’s definitely trying, but something else is wrong, maybe the view mapping to get the source code.

Mean while I’ve been trying desperately to execute a successful xcopy command from my friend's network share, but currently is not working since every other subfolder has an offending file whose name is too long (greater than 255 chars).

This can be worked around by having xcopy renaming all the offending folders and files with the /N switch which will execute the copy using the generated short names. This pretty much ruins everything since after the copy, I’m not able to read or tell exactly which is what since now my build source differs from the original.

Since manually copying the depot will never work, what would you suggest to fix this?

So, what is the answer behind door number one Bob? Du, na, na, naaaaaaaah......

!! ROBOCOPY !!

Yes my friends, ROBOSCOPY will solve all of your copying needs, no matter HOW OBSCURE your soucre control tree may be...

All you have to do is faithfully believe in your self as a programmer, be a devout user of Microsoft .NET (MS Windows also helps), have a firm belief in God through Jesus Christ to deliver you from all of your programming difficulties, and go to the URL http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en to download the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools for Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003. Within the tool kit you will find ROBOCOPY plus a large expanded set of the cmd32 commands you are already used too. Have fun, have a great HAPPY THANKS GIVING and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, and let me know if this works for any of you... (Post comment down below)
