Hi Amar,

Can you check your parameters you have used for the WebDav repository manager configuraion?

It should be of this format:

If WebDAV server is available at http://webDAVserver:1090/projectshare.

Example of a WebDAV repository manager configuration:

Name = webdav

Description = WebDAV Repsoitory Manager

Prefix = /webdav

System ID = webdav

System Path = /projectshare

Cache Timeout = 5000

Memory Cache = ca_webdav

ACL Manager Cache = ca_rsrc_acl

Versioning Manager = [u2026].WDVersioningManager

Server Type = Native IIS WebDAV Server

Example of corresponding HTTP system:

System ID = webdav

Description = HTTP System for WebDAV

Server-URL = http://webDAVserver:1090

Same User Domain = Activated

max. Connections = 300
