RA layer request failed

If you get below mentioned SVN error in Eclipse or My Eclipse, possibly there could be two reasons.

RA layer request failed
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request for ''

1. Check whether you have access to the SVN repository.

Hit the SVN url in your browser and check whether you can access it, if required put user name and password. if you do not have access then ask SVN admin to grant access to you.

2. If you have access and still getting above error.

Go to below mentioned folder and Clean up the folder. Take files backup or simply delete those files.

C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Application Data\Subversion\auth

Now try to access your SVN in Eclipse, Hope you may able to access it, if not let us discuss it.
