Problem:

VSS Sharing and pinning appears to fail within StarTeam

Resolution:

  • Product name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2008R2
  • Product Component: Server
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP

Description:
Why can"t I locate the pinned and shared locations that were done in my VSS project once I wrap and convert it to Native-II format within StarTeam?


Answer/Solution:

StarTeam and VSS do not act the same when it comes to pinning... the VSS definition of pinning is the ability to only access a specified version/build (specifying a particular version of the file rather than the tip)

StarTeam"s definition of pinning is the ability link and lock a specific process item to the tip revision (the context menu in the link tab enables you to pin links to the source or target items or both)

Therefore, it is not possible to transfer or carry over this methodology from VSS to StarTeam because the connotations are not the same
