With comments from various people, I found that problems of the form: > cvs [rtag aborted]: cannot rename file > d:\Groups\2002\project\team041\Zero41/,Zero41.cpp, to > d:\Groups\2002\project\team041\Zero41/Zero41.cpp,v: File exists Do seem to have to do with the CVSNT server leaving a dangling lock file in the temp directory it is using. Given enough time (in my case, when I checked back the next day), CVSNT will resolve the problem on its own. A faster "fix" is to stop the server, clean the temp directory and restart the server; this is obviously a bit cumbersome, but I'm now sure what else you can do. The devguy site: http://www.devguy.com/fp/cfgmgmt/cvs/cvs_admin_nt.htm#Maintenance suggests that regular maintainence of this sort may be necessary; I have not found it to be so myself. I have a feeling that the issue stems from a mis-handled user interrupt of a task. I beleive that the file in question may have had a "diff" going on earlier which was aborted. I have not had the chance to compare the CVSNT behaviour in this situation to that when a legitimate lock is in place for an extended period of time. Thanks to everyone who sent mail with suggestions and comments, Andrew. _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
