SVN Error when connecting through Review Assistant

SVN Error when connecting through Review Assistant

Postby valsidalv » Fri 08 Aug 2014 19:10

Hi, I just installed Review Assistant and Code Reviewer within my company (we're currently testing out the 30-day trial). I successfully set up the server but am having issues with one of the employees' install.
Whenever he attempts any action that requires connecting to our SVN server he receives the following error after entering his credentials:

Command: log --non-interactive --username USER --stop-on-copy --xml --limit 100 https://my.server.com/svn/projects/my_project/Trunk
Working Directory: C:\my_directory\my_project
Message: svn: E230001: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'https://my.server.com/svn/projects/my_project/Trunk'
svn: E230001: Server SSL certificate verification failed: issuer is not trusted


svn.exe in the TortoiseSVN directory is correctly selected in the Version Control tab.

Some research online hints at adding the argument "--trust-server-cert" but I'm not sure where to add that. Another employee can successfully connect, so I'm not sure where the fault lies.

Hi. Try to interact with that repository manually (e.g. from TortoiseSVN), and it will prompt you to trust that certificate. It will be saved for that machine once you allow the certificate.

Navigating to the SVN SSL certificate directory (%APPDATA%\Subversion\aut\svn.ssl.server), I deleted the existing file which prompted TortoiseSVN to trust the certificate again. I selected "trust certificate permanently" but unfortunately this didn't make the problem go away.
The employee's login credentials are saved in TortoiseSVN, but not Review Assistant. Aside from this I can't think of any differences between his installation and the other ones.

Please check that Visual Studio and SVN client running under the same user.

We will add "--trust-server-cert" to our connection string to prevent similar situations.
