run bazaar on a network drive

Asked by Timmie on 2007-12-10

Hello,
is it possible to have a repository running on a network drive?

The dumb server supports FTP, SSH, HTTP(S), etc.
http://doc.bazaar-vcs.org/bzr.0.92rc/en/user-guide/server.html

Can I run and set up acentral repository on a network drive (formated with NTFS)?

Thanks & kind regards,
Timmie

You should be able to access it directly as though it were a local filesystem path. I'm not sure what platform you are on but:

bzr log Z:\foo\bar

should work without any problems, and I'm pretty sure that

bzr log \\host\foo\bar

Also works. (It mostly works because Windows will treat it as a local path for most applications.)

On other platforms, it still shouldn't be a problem. Most likely you will need to mount the network share first, though.

Can you help with this problem?
