Importing Dump File Issue

My problem is that i can't import a SVN dump file into uberSVN. The dump file is 480MB in it's size so i can't upload it. That's why i've located it directly on the server and choosed it then with the other option to create a repository using a dump file located on the server. Following Error appreared after a while: javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.NullPointerException It created the folder and put some files into it, however i'm not able to fully recreate my repository. The other dump i had which is a smaller file (109MB) worked just fine. I require some assistance here. Cheers Everade

Hi Everade, This sounds like the same problem as posted at [url]http://www.svnforum.org/threads/39563-CentoOS-How-to-uninstall-and-reinstall?p=112743&viewfull=1#post112743[/url] A workaround is suggested there and it would be good to know if that works for you too? I haven't tested this myself but there does appear to be a problem with the initial dump import on larger repositories (I guess that's what Beta's are for!) and I've escalated this as a bug internally for further investigation and resolution.

I've installed uberSVN on Windows Server 2008 64 bit. I don't think that solution is going to work for me. Any advise?

There's no reason the same solution wouldn't work with Windows. If you use a command prompt to issue the svnadmin commands you should find the steps are the same? Let me know if you need more help here. Ian

Didn't worked for me, i have not enough experience with CMD commands. Please give me more detailed advice.

Hello Everade, Can you try creating the repository without doing the initial dump file loading. Then try and load the dump file using the administration tab for the new repository in uberSVN. It would be interesting to see if this works and the initial load doesn't.

Thanks allot. But i was already able to fix the issue with the help from John. What i had to do was create a new repository with uberSVN, and then use the cmd window (windows server 2008) svnadmin load C:/ubersvn/repositories/rep_name < C:/rep_file.dump when i've created the repository with svnadmin create inside the console, the ubersvn server didn't recognized the folder in the interface of ubersvn. Thanks for your support guys, and thanks for this great tool.
