Mixing two Concurrent Development Mode

Post by Tri » Tue Jan 22, 2008 4:16 pm


Client + Server: 3.53

We use the default mode for Concurrent Development Mode which is "Check Out / Edit / Check In (VSS Mode)". Some team members found the exclusive lock of VSS mode is rather inconvenient. They would prefer to opt for the style "Edit / Merge / Commit (CVS Mode)".

Question: is it possible for Vault Server to support simultaneously these two modes? If yes, is there any precaution we should observe?

Thanks very much in advance.

That is a setting that is client specific. A user can choose CVS mode for his/herself, but if a user checks out an item exclusively, they might not be able to check it in until the other user checks in their copy. You don't have to use exclusive locks in VSS mode either though, so you may wish to check in the admin tool to make sure you don't have exclusive locks required, and then have the users turn off their option that says 'Always Request Exclusive Locks'. That setting is in the Vault Tools - Options.
