failure to create a branch for the first time

I have a patch that I want to create a branch with and but I am having difficulties creating a branch on MONSooN. I tried using the fcm gui with the —password "" option and it failed. I also tried the command line but this also failed. At one point it appeared to have created a branch but when I tried to use the patch it complained that my branch didn't exist.

on the gui, it just complained about the password option and didn't allow me to comment, although said it had created a branch

On the command line, I tried the following command (and also a permutation of this, with the password bit in other places)
fcm bc cs_trap fcm:um@vn7.8 —password ""
(this is what I have used here at the Met Office)
This allowed me to comment and appeared to create a branch (although at vn8.2!!) although the branch didn't exist when I tried the patch.

I'm not sure what to do now!

Hi Carol,

Your branch looks to have been created ok or are you trying to create another one? (see You shouldn't need to supply the —password option since you have already successfully written to the repository so your details are cached.

To apply the patch all you should need to do is run:

/path/to/patch/fcm-import-patch svn://puma/UM_svn/UM/branches/dev/challi/vn7.8_cs_trap2

If it's still causing problems let me know the error message it gives.
