Hi all,

I'm just starting with cvs and have tried out the local mode using wincvs. (works
perfectly fine)

Now I'm switching to ntserver and I'm running into problems creating a new
repository on the server machine.
Scenario 1:
Using cvsnt Build 41, WinCVS 1.3
Trying WinCVS with "Create new Repository" and the following settings:
authentication: ntserver
path: c:/mpk/cvs/nt
host address: cm-service
user name:    (blank)
CVSROOT: @cm-service:c:/mpk/cvs/nt

creates an output:
cvs -d :ntserver:@cm-service:c:/mpk/cvs/nt init

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

when I use the command string in a DOS-Box on my client machine:
cvs -d :ntserver:cm-service:c:/mpk/cvs/nt init
I get the following message:
Bad repository root c:/mpk/cvs/nt

Scenario 2:
in the CVSNT-Service window I added a new "Valid Repository Root"  c:\mpk\cvs on the
machine cm-service. Was successful, CVS-dir is created, so should work fine.
using an import command from Wincvs 1.3 to this repository causes an exit with code
1, which means a problem

again, when I use cvs import -I ! -I CVS -m 1 ringbuffer avendor arelease  from the
command line in the dos box (ringbuffer is a subdir of my actual location on my
local disk)
I get again this "bad repository root c:/mpk/cvs"

Is it a problem of variables on my machine (I set the CVSROOT-Variable as "set
CVSROOT :ntserver:cm-service:c:/mpk/cvs")? I can ping the cm-service machine and I
have normal user rights.

When I install the CVSNT on my local machine and access it via :ntserver: I get the
same problems as described above.

Thanks in advance,
