PVCS Version Manager 8.6.2




Having a minus/hyphen (-) character in the ServletURL of a servlet will render it inoperable when used with VM 8.6.1.

After you login to the servlet, every project will show an error similar to the following:

HTTP Status 404 - /Sample*2dDB/

type Status report

message /Sample*2dDB/

description The requested resource is not available.


This issue is resolved as of VM 8.6.2.

If you are running VM 8.6.1, either install VM 8.6.1 HotFix 004 from KB doc P2861, or replace all minus/hyphen (-) characters in the ServletURL values with an underscore (_).
