I'm using a repository on a shared network drive and it works
without any probleme. But I don't use drive letters because one
cannot rely of them being available on startup of the CVS service.

So I use UNC path names (also using forward slashes !) like:
   CVSROOT==:pserver:manhart at serverA://serverB/share/CVS

Betreff: [Cvsnt] CVS Repository on the shared disks

CVS doesn't work when I put my repository to the shared network resourse

Everytime I get "no such repository".

For example :
cvs -d :pserver:mark_b at login mark_b
(Logging in to mark_b at
CVS password: ******
/nnn: no such repository
cvs login: authorization failed: server rejected access .

I've tried to start cvsservice with my user account but it doesn't help.
