It has been stated numerous times (by Tony Hoyle, the maintainer of CVSNT) that the server must have direct access to the drives hosting the repository due to the nature of CVS' file operations. Using a network share is asking for trouble. Corruption of the RSC files is the likely outcome over time. You must equip myappsvr with adequate disks and include it in the backup circus. There should be _no_ direct access to the drive holding the repository. > 3. each developer has his sandbox, lets say on C: > > c:\myproject That is a genuinely good idea :-) Workspaces should always be on local not shared drives. > The project manager will perform CVS update on the reference-copy on a > regular basis (perhaps controlled by a scheduler.
