Question:

Is it possible to perform multiple wraps simultaneously from Visual Source Safe into StarTeam?


Answer:

Attempting simultaneous wraps should be avoided. It is possible, but not recommended to perform multiple StarTeam wraps on the same Visual SourceSafe project. Although theoretically you can create more than one StarTeam project from one Visual SourceSafe project simultaneously, there is a potential you will encounter problems.

Attempting to perform simultaneous wraps will likely generate errors such as "can"t get the creation date" and "A history operation is already in progress". These are a result of reading/writing operations being performed at the same time.
