You are probably trying to change the server for an already checked
out working file set. But that will fail because you only need to log
in to the server for the initial checkout, after that the CVS system
keeps track of where the files came from and will connect you
automatically to that server every time you do an update or commit or
similar cvs operations.
This information is cached in the CVS/Root file that exists in every
directory under CVS control. You have to change these files first.
