Please check with task manager on the CVSNT server if you can see processes named cvs.exe. If you can then the simplest method for now is to reboot the CVSNT server. What you see is unfinished cvs processes which hold these files locked. I have lately seen a number of such cases too but killing the cvs.exe processes actually released everything. Problem is that you cannot kill them from task manager, so I set up a scheduled task running each night killing off these cvs.exe processes. It looks like using WinCvs 1.2 creates these problems more often than 1.3. Don't know why. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Nascendi [mailto:nascendi at poczta.onet.pl] Sent: den 11 februari 2002 10:22 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: [Cvsnt] [commit aborted]: cannot rename file / could not open lock file - how to solve it? Hello, I have problem with WinCVS 1.2 and CVS NT service 126.96.36.199 on Win2k. I can not successfully commit any change, including file removal. After the 1st trial the message is: cvs [commit aborted]: cannot rename file /..../,aa_usr.awk, to /...../aa_usr.awk,v: File exists After the 2nd one, when the ,,-file has just been created, the message is: cvs [commit aborted]: could not open lock file `/..../,aa_usr.awk,': file exists It's doubtful that any other program locks any cvs file. I was trying with cvsntserver running and stopped - there is no difference. I also tried in ntserver mode as well as Local mounted directory. The rest of cvs functions seems to work well. Would anybody be so kind to help me to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.
