We have ~50 freebsd servers here where I work. Rather than cvsup'ing all of 'em from geographically local sites, I've built a box to house a cvs repository.
I built net/cvsup and net/cvsup-mirror, and installed both. It's done the initial cvsup of the entire repository, and everything looks fine on that end. Tonight, I wanted to test it, so decided to have the box cvsup itself from it's repository. It failed. Here's the cvsup output: mirrorbox# cvsup -g -L 2 ~/stable-supfile Parsing supfile "/root/stable-supfile" Connecting to localhost Connected to localhost Server software version: SNAP_16_1h Negotiating file attribute support Exchanging collection information Server message: Unknown collection "src-all" Establishing multiplexed-mode data connection Running Skipping collection src-all/cvs Shutting down connection to server Finished successfully /var/log/cvsupd.log gives the same information, as does syslog. I've been working on this most of the evening, finally decided to post a question to -questions. I'm using the supfile that net/cvsup-mirror provides, and I'll paste it in at the bottom. Please e-mail replies, I'm not a member of the -questions list. Many thanks in advance! -Pat ------supfile follows------ # # Standard supfile for CVSup FreeBSD mirrors. # *default delete use-rel-suffix umask=002 cvs-all release=cvs prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD.cvs gnats release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-gnats.current www release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-www.current mail-archive release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-mail.current distrib release=self prefix=prefixes/distrib.self __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
