All known major EFS related issues have been fixed for TM 2.0.1. In many cases we think that the problem is not with the TM/RSE EFS provider but with the clients not being prepared for remote resources through EFS properly. We encourage all projects to be aware that resources in the workspace are not necessarily fast to access, in the case they actually reside on a remote computer linked in through EFS. TM/RSE is a great toolkit to verify EFS-awareness.

This page lists the most obvious known issues with TM 2.0 and suggests workarounds. By "most obvious" we mean those issues that many users are likely to encounter. Note that there may be other severe or critical issues not listed here, because they are less likely to occur. See the Bugzilla: TM Major and Critical, P1 and P2 query to show those.

We encourage you to enable Wiki Watch for this page: ensure that you are logged on to the Wiki, then click the little 'watch' tab on top of this page. On your personal "preferences" page (accessible from the top right of your screen) you can also enable E-Mail notifications for changes on this page. This will allow you to get notified when other users find important problems that you might be able to work around.

This is a collaborative page: Every user may edit this page and add bugs he or she has filed, that are very obivious or problematic and that he or she'd like other users to be able to work around to avoid. See the TM Bug Process Page for queries to get the full list of known bugs out of bugzilla.

Known Problems in TM 2.0.x

TM 2.0.2 is the latest official release.

(query) TM 2.0.1 Problems with EFS Integration

All known major EFS related issues have been fixed for TM 2.0.1. In many cases we think that the problem is not with the TM/RSE EFS provider but with the clients not being prepared for remote resources through EFS properly. We encourage all projects to be aware that resources in the workspace are not necessarily fast to access, in the case they actually reside on a remote computer linked in through EFS. TM/RSE is a great toolkit to verify EFS-awareness.

179937 TM 2.0.1 (BIDI) File and Path names in files tree do not honor encoding: For SSH and FTP, this has been fixed in TM 2.0.1; for dstore, it is possible to launch the server with required encoding settings (see the bug for details). For enhanced usbility, dstore should also use the host-wide encoding control in the future.
192741 TM 2.0.0.1 / I20070705-0600 Moving a folder from a ZIP archive fails if > 1 level deep - this could mean loss of data.

A patch is provided with TM 2.0.0.1. See the TM 2.0.0.1 blog for details.

194204 TM 2.0.0.1 / I20070705-0600 RSE FTP: Renaming Files/Folders moves them sometimes - this could mean loss of data. A patch is provided with TM 2.0.0.1. See the TM 2.0.0.1 blog for details.
