Subject Re: strange E/W200033 (b)locking error/warning when trying to modify a svn 1.8 working copy over SMB share
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2014 09:46:05 GMT

follow-up regarding my problems with "database is locked" errors when trying
to access a Subversion 1.8 working copy located on an AIX machine 
remotely via
SMB from a GNU/Linux machine:

- A Windows SMB share causes the same errors, so it's not specific to Samba.

- The problem can be circumvented by mounting the SMB share with option
   'nobrl'. From the mount.cifs(8) man page:

         Do not send byte range lock requests to the server. This is 
         for certain applications that break with cifs style mandatory byte
         range locks (and most cifs servers do not yet support requesting
         advisory byte range locks).

I'm currently giving the 'nobrl' option in combination with

exclusive-locking-clients = svn

in ~/.subversion/config a try. So far it seems to work just fine. :-)
