    Merge To( from ) fails in cm but not in gui

    Hi @karmakat, sorry for the long delay answering, I totally missed this post. Which Plastic SCM version do you use? Make sure your client.conf has the following entry: <ServerSideMergeEnabled>yes</ServerSideMergeEnabled> With the "" release (and higher) the Plastic SCM server is able to solve merge-to conflicts even if they are inside an xlink. Give it a try!
  3. Hi @Fleer, Unity is probably just changing the time stamp of the file but its content remains unchanged. I recommend you to use the following preference. Open the pending changes view, click options. Enable the "Check the content to determine files as changed, not only timestamp." option. This will vary the way a file is recognized as changed. The option explanation can't say it better Hope it helps!
  4. You decide the limits! Plastic will perform great. We have customers with thousands of teeny repositories (500-900MB) and we have customers with a single Jet database of 4-5TB. If the server drive is great, if the network is great and the client drives are great you really don't need to bother about how Plastic SCM is going to handle it. The same applies to the number of files in your project. How big is your project?

    Plastic Service Won't Start Error 1053

    @rodgeralley I think it would be better if you could contact us to support at codicesfotware dot com sharing the full "plastic.debug.log.txt" server log file. We will check for the slowest operation where the problem is, it might be the Server HD speed but we will double check it with the logs. Is it possible for you to replace the HD? If it's not doable we also offer the Plastic SCM cloud, you can give it a try for free to check if the speed is better. Cloud repositories are always private and can be encrypted if needed.

    Plastic Service Won't Start Error 1053

    I'm afraid that's super slow for a server machine, Jet will notice the lack of speed The average speed for a 7200 RPM drive it ranges from about 80-160 MB/s. The average speed for a regular SSD drive is about 120-300 MB/s I'll check the logs now.

    That should be preeeeeetty easy for Plastic so let's check the logs! How good is the HD used by the Plastic SCM server? Can you run the following test at the Plastic SCM server machine? cm iostats --disktest --disktestpath=c:\ --diskdatasize=100 We are interested in the "Disk write speed" value, repart the command a couple of times to ensure we get coherent results. Share with us the result

    How do I change Repo name and/or server address?

    Hi @Donald Newlands! that's actually the definition of our "serveralias.conf" feature. Check the details here: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/administration/plastic-scm-version-control-administrator-guide#Chapter13:Supportalternativeconnectionstothesameserver Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or feedback!

    File name changed not detected

    Hi! I have just tested with Unity 2017.3 + Latest Plastic and works for me, can you share your Unity version?

    Plastic 7.x incredibly slow?

    Hello @Carton Jeston, can you share with us how many private items do you have in your workspace? The more private items you have the more it will impact at the pending changes view performance. But this should be true for both the current Plastic 7 release and the old 6 and 5.

    Broken link in forum notification emails

    Hi @Wolfram, I got this from the forum support team:
  14. Hi @ziflin! the workspace root path is a valid place both the "writable.conf" and "readonly.conf". I've tested with the latest release and it works as expected. I'm wondering if you had the following preference enabled or another writable.conf placed elsewhere, that might interfere the result. Yes! That's how it works. You need to clear the workspace and download everything as the flag is only written during the update operation.
  15. Hi @ziflin ! You can basically mimic the "lock.conf" rules for the "readonly.conf" file and share it across the office using the global config feature. Here you can find more info about the readonly.con file: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/gui/plastic-scm-version-control-gui-guide.shtml#TheOtherOptionsTab https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/administration/plastic-scm-version-control-administrator-guide.shtml?term=readonly.conf#Chapter16:Configurationfiles And here how the global config works: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/administration/plastic-scm-version-control-administrator-guide.shtml?term=readonly.conf#Globalfileconfiguration Hope it helps!
