Problem:

This server configuration does not support the creation of advanced views

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2008
  • Product Component: Client
  • Platform/OS Version: All Supported OS

Description:
Why do I get "This server configuration does not support the creation of advanced views." message when trying to create a view?




Answer/Solution:
The Administering & Using StarTeam 2008 guide (http://techpubs.borland.com/starteam/2008/en/AdministeringAndUsingStarTeam.pdf) states on Page 49:

"By default, StarTeam 2008 does not allow the creation of an advanced view (Branch None or Branch All, Float). In addition, warnings now result from the following:
Diamonds Configuring a folder to a floating configuration.
Diamonds Clearing the Set Items Shared Into View To Branch On Change check box."

The reason for this being that a Branch All, float view may lead to certain ambiguous merge situations when used with the View Compare/Merge tool.

However, if you really need this option to be enabled, it can be done by the following steps:

1. Shutdown the StarTeam configurations (stop all StarTeam server instances) on Server 2008
2. Close the Server Administration Utility
3. Browse to the StarTeam-Server-Configs.xml file, typically located on C:\Program Files\Borland\StarTeam Server 2008
4. Append the following option to the specific server configuration you would like to be able to create Branch all, floating views in.

Example:

5. Restart the instances.
6. Use StarTeam 2008 CPC to connect to Server 2008 and notice that the option is available again in new view wizard.
