I ran into the same problem. I got around it by creating a local admin account on the box, I already had a Domain Id with admin rights to the box but that didn't seem to be enough.

Here is my scenario: (I'm using Win2000 server) I installed CVSNT 22.214.171.124 (Build 57j). Here is a copy of the DOS command window: C:\Documents and Settings\kkolle>set cvsroot=:ntserver:a0986:/test C:\Documents and Settings\kkolle>cvs passwd -a kkolle Adding user kkolle at a0986 New password: **** Verify password: **** cvs [server aborted]: Only administrators can add users I am in the Administrator group on the box. In this URL, http://w1.858.telia.com/~u85831169/InstallCVSNT.html#InstallSteps, there is a section titled "Administrating the repository, users with admin rights." I manually created an admin file with kkolle as the only line in it. I'm attempting to add myself as a user to CVSNT. Do I have to be logged into CVS as the admin user of CVS? Or, is this referring to the admin group on NT? I want to use NT authentication, but how can I add users initially if I don't know their NT password? Doesn't a user's password on the client (like wincvs) need to match the password on the server? If so, when a user's nt password gets changed, how does the password file on the cvs server get changed to match the new password? Is there some documentation on this that I may have missed? Will sspi ease my pains if I don't go with nt authentication? note: I don't need access to cvs outside of my network at this point, so I probably don't need sspi now. I also found this post: http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt/2002-February/000532.html Any good suggestions for a newbie installer of cvsnt? Thanks in advance. _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
