You don't 'create' a CVSROOT directory! If none is there then you don't have a valid repository and you must go back and create it. NOTE!!!: The admin file resides *on the server* in the *existing* CVSROOT directory. It is a simple text file (such as Notepad can handle) and the administrative logins are listed here each on a separate line. This is a server side operation. /Bo On Sat, 21 Sep 2002 22:21:24 -0500, "Chad Myers" <cmyers at austin.rr.com> wrote: >I've followed the "Step-by-Step" installation guide and reached >the point where I'm supposed to use the cvs passwd -a ... >to add a user. > >I'm logged in as a user in the Administrators and/or Domain Admins >group. > >CVSNT is installed ON the domain controller, if that matters. > >I execute the following commands in accordance with the docs: > >set cvsroot=:ntserver:SERVER:/test >c:\cvsnt\cvs.exe passwd -a chad > >-- And I get: > >New password: **** >Verify password: **** >cvs [server aborted]: Only administrators can add users > >I am an admin.
