Issue with creating SVN dump

I'm trying to migrate from SVN to Git, and doing everything according to instructions. After creating and downloading the svn.dump it turned to be the dump of only one project (which was currently set in the "Projects" menu on the top). How can I create and obtain the dump for all the projects, tags and branches?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Andrew,

I hope I get this right. As far as I know, an SVN dump, at least from our OnDemand instances, should contain all the projects. There are instructions here on how to get that dump, which is from the backup manager:

Is that the same place you are getting your dump? And it definitely only has a single project?

Sorry for the 20 questions - I just want to be sure we're talking about the same thing.


Hi Charles,

thank you for your reply. I've followed the instructions, but during extracting the dump, i had following errors:

svnadmin: E125005: Invalid property value found in dumpstream; consider repairing the source or using --bypass-prop-validation while loading.
svnadmin: E125005: Cannot accept non-LF line endings in 'svn:ignore' property

Hi Frank,

That's not good. Do you mind raising a support ticket so we can help you further.



Hi Charles,

sorry for confusing. I've followed the instructions i've pasted in the previous comments (used --bypass-prop-validation) and it seemed to solve my issue.

Thank you for support, anyway!

No worries - glad you got it working.
