Files appear modified after moving AccuRev from one server to another.

0 Likes

SYMPTOM:
After migrating AccuRev from one server to another, if anyone stats elements that are text files, they are all showing up as being modified even though they haven't been touched.


CAUSE:
When the user unzipped and extract the data on the destination server, they used Winzip to perform this function. Winzip has the following set by default; 'TAR file smart CR/LF conversion'. AccuRev stores files on the server using Unix EOL convention. By having this option set, Winzip converts files stored on the server to use Windows EOL convention, thus causing the files to appear to be modified by AccuRev.


SOLUTION:
Disable this option in Winzip and redo the unzip and extract operation.
