Moving the AccuRev Server and
Repository to Another Machine

The AccuRev data repository should be physically located on the machine that runs the AccuRev Server process. (This is not an absolute restriction — see READ ME NOW: Assuring the Integrity of the AccuRev Repository.) The repository consists of multiple slices: the site slice contains information that pertains to the entire repository, and each depot has its own slice.

From time to time, you may want (or need) to have the AccuRev server process run on a different machine. To accomplish this, you must:

  • Install AccuRev on the new machine.

  • Move your data repository to the new machine.

The procedure described below is safe to use even if the new machine has a different byte order than the old machine.
