I have the same problem.
I have to actually get on the machine that hosts the respository.
Log in as Administrator.
Goto start-programs-cvsnt-configure
And set it to accept local admins and then hit apply.

I can then do all the cvs admin commands with no complaining from cvsnt.

If you find another solution id, love to hear it.

Subject: [cvsnt] Newbie quetions.....

I am trying to install and use CVS for NT for the first time. I have
following the install guide at
"http://w1.858.telia.com/~u85831169/InstallCVSNT.html#InstallSteps" but
have been running into a issues adding users. I have completed all the
install steps and got a repository set and the server running. But when
try to add users to pserver I get a message telling me that only admins
change passwords. I have set up the admin file in the CVSROOT directory
with my ID but I still get the message....

Platform : Windows 2000 Professional

P:\home\V49393>cvs passwd -a -r v49393 xray
Adding user xray
New password: *******
Verify password: *******
cvs [passwd aborted]: Only administrators can add or change another's

What am I doing wrong? I am signed on the box with  my Domain ID which
administrator rights on the box. Any help would be appreciated......
