Migration from SVN

    Question

  • Hi

    I need to migrate an old SVN repository to Team Foundation Server Version Control.  Can anyone offer any advice on the best way to do this?

    Thanks

  • Well, there are several options, maybe, migrate manually, just get the latest version of all your SVN files, create the projects in TFS and add the files to Source control, of course, this will be the simple one, but will be probably a complete pain if you have a big amount of projects and so on, also you will loose history and so on. Another option, which would be probably one of the best, but I can't give you so much advice as I haven't tested this tools, is using a migration tool like this one http://www.componentsoftware.com/Products/converter/svn2tfs.htm, which will keep history and so on, but you better look for reviews on this tool, as I haven't tried it. And the last, and probably at this moment, not the better option if you are starting with TFS, is use the SCM object model, to do it in a process.

    In resume, I think I would go for one tool like the one I put here, which I also think is the only one at this moment.

  • I tried out the Trial Version of SVN-2-TFS released by Kyrosoft for testing out the migration of SVN to TFS source control and it works perfectly. I tested out quite a lot of migration scenarios and it worked very well in all of those.

     

    Check out their trial version at http://www.kyrosoft.com/products/SVN-2-TFS.htm

  • Hi John,
    I was trying svn to tfs conversion using timely migration, but having problem with sql configuration. Does the SQL server should be the one that makes the data tier of the SQL server? any help on this will be highly appreciated.
