I am trying to create a repository on a NAS drive. I have done the following "

svnadmin create \\NAS\subversion\New_repos  .. just wondering what else has to be done so I can view in GUI.

I used CollabNet as the install.

Thanks in advance.

First of all, using a repository on a NAS share is not supported and will not work reliably with multiple users accessing the repository. If you need this, you have to set up a real subversion server.

Second, if the command succeeded without errors, your repository is now ready to use. I don't know about the gui tools of CollabNet, but it should work by pointing them to file:////NAS/subversion/New_repos as the repository URL. To use your tools, you will usually have to checkout a working copy somewhere.
