Reference Trees Tab Layout

The Reference Trees tab contains a table with these columns:


(appears if Include deactivated trees is checked) Active indicates that the reference tree is available for use. Inactive indicates that the reference tree is currently deactivated (but can be reactivated).


The name of the reference tree.


The pathname of the reference tree on the machine where it resides.


The name or IP address of the machine where the reference tree resides.


The integer stream-ID of the stream on which the reference tree is based. This number is unique with the reference tree's depot only, not across the entire repository.

Target Transaction

(appears if Show details  is checked) The depot's transaction level at the time the Update command was most recently invoked on the reference tree. Update attempts to load versions created in transactions up to and including the target transaction. If the Target Transaction and Update Level are the same, the reference tree's most recent update completed successfully.

Update Level

(appears if Show details  is checked) The highest-numbered transaction whose versions have been copied to the reference tree in an update.


(appears if Show details  is checked) The integer 3, indicating that the type of data structure is a reference tree.


(appears if Show details  is checked) The type of line terminator used when an update copies text-file versions to the reference tree: Auto (line terminator used by the host machine's OS), UNIX (NL), or Windows (CR-LF).

In this release, the Open command is disabled. You cannot view the contents of a reference tree using the AccuRev GUI.


Modify the configuration of the reference tree.


Bring back into active service a reference tree that was previously deactivated with the Remove command.


Deactivate a reference tree. The reference tree cannot be updated.

You can use the Reactivate command to bring back a removed reference tree.
