Hi,

In our DTAP environment we have several apps that use Eclipse.
Now, we notice that Eclipse can create very long pathnames.

i.e:

C:\users\jja119.PROD.V2\.eclipse\com.ibm.mq.explorer.ui.rcp.RcpApplication_9.0.0.201605122106_171862051_win32_win32_x86_64\p2\org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine\profileRegistry\profile.profile\.data\.settings\org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.prefs

This can create a problem with roaming profiles being synchronized to the Profile Server.
We enabled Long Paths in Windows. Registry: LongPathEnabled=1
But, even then , the maximum is around 30.000 characters.

I had a user who had folders in the .eclipse folder that went 10.000 ! folders deep.

Could it be related to the scripts our testers use, or is there something I can configure to prevent this from happening?

Thanks and regards,

Peter

Hi,

I'm sorry but this is the forum for the Eclipse 4diac project. I think your question would be better suited for the Eclipse Platform forum: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/11/.

Unfortunately I can not move your message. Therefore I kindly ask to repost your question there.

BR,
Alois
