Can't make new branch on Puma/Monsoon

I'm having a problem trying to make a new branch with an [INVALID BRANCH OWNER] error. These are the commands I have used and errors:

scottan@puma:/home/scottan> fcm branch-create —type dev -k 5523 cri_NOy_bugfix fcm:um.x_tr@vn11.7

[info] Source: (87191)
[info] vi: starting commit message editor…
Change summary:


Commit message is as follows:

#5523 scottarchernicholls - New branch for bugfix to CRI so that NOy is conserved and NOy deposition diagnostics are correct.
#5523: Created /main/branches/dev/scottachernicholls/vn11.7_cri_NOy_bugfix from /main/trunk@87191.

Create the branch?
Enter "y" or "n" (or just press <return> for "n") y

[FAIL] svn copy —file /tmp/Epr53b8leP —parents # rc=1

I've had the same problem using this command on both Puma (above) and Monsoon.

I saw ticket #3305 had a similar error, but when I checked my
~/.subversion/servers file, I only had on instance of username and that corresponded to my MOSRS username.

Any help appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hi Scott,

There is a typo in your ~/.subversion/servers file on PUMA.

username = scottachernicholls

There is an r missing.
