Before I can test http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15916380/vb-script-to-retreive-access-rights-reporting-from-viusal-svn/15940120?noredirect=1#comment22725112_15940120 to perform live migration from version 1.6.3 to 3.0.5 (latest release), Could you share is there any rule of thumb and best practice for success this upgrade activity?
I have gone through for pre and post checklist http://www.visualsvn.com/support/topic/00036/ But still have some concern as listed
1.The existing Repositories is on
E:\Repositories, should I make a backup copy? and can we select the existing Repo during the installation? (The existing VisualSVN Server is installed at the default localtion
C:\Program Files (x86)\VisualSVN Server
2.I Believe there is the downtime for our user to access SVN service during upgrade, usually how long will it take to complete?
3.Can our user still work on the old TortoiseSVN? Our user currently on TortoiseSVN 1.6.15 and suggest to upgrade 1.7.11. Should we upgrade the client first?
I have more than 500+ users, so I need to collect as much as information to discuss and get agreement on this upgrade.
