Problem:

Does StarTeam support UNC paths for working directories including those directories on Unix operating systems?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 & 2005 R2
  • Product Component: Windows and Cross-Platform Clients
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows/Unix


Yes, UNC paths are supported for working directories in StarTeam.

Since the Working Folder property of each virtual folder in StarTeam is configurable, it just needs to be set to the appropriate path, either on a Windows or Unix machine. To support this, every virtual folder in StarTeam has properties which can be set to govern its Unix file and path support in terms of path syntax to be used (i.e. End-of-line character handling for Unix based files, etc).

It should be noted however that for a Windows operating system to understand a Unix path structure a third party application will need to be installed. Such applications are readily available free of charge and in a mixed Unix/Windows environment will already likely be in place.
