: We are a company with Software Development happening at multiple locations in two countries. We are currently using CVS for the version control and are planning to move to StarTeam. Our main concern is the issue of migrating the files from CVS to Star Team. Is there any way by which we can migrate all our files from CVS to StarTeam so that

: 1. the versions and their history/log information is not lost.
: 2. doesnt take too long and affect our ongoing development effort.

: Can somebody suggest any automatic/semi-automatic/manual method to carry out this task?

: Thanks in Advance,

If you use the method described here: http://www.fox.se/english/starteam/faq/how_to_migrate_CVS_archives_to_StarTeam.htm

The the answers to your questions are:

1. You will retain your revision history, but with the date/time stamps when added/checked in to StarTeam.
2. As far as how long it will take obviously depends on the number of files & revisions of those files. It will affect your ongoing development as you cannot have users check files in during the conversion process!
