I've taken over a CVS repository environment running on Windows 2000 SP2, and I've never used it before. A few developers use it now, but no one knows how to add new users. ha! They have hired a few more people, and need them as new new users. simple...huh? not!
So... I've gone off to study today, and discovered.
We are running
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) NT 126.96.36.199 (Build 34)
In order for this to work, I need to change the Windows 2000 ENV variable CVSROOT=:local:D:/CVSNT to
I'm not sure why it defaults to the other one.
Next, we are running our repository using pserver. I know this since current users can still login using pserver:user at server:d:/cvsrepository.
So... the next bit of info I discover is the add user option:
cvs passwd [-a] [-x] [-X] [-r real_user] [-R] [-D domain] [username]
-a Add user
-x Disable user
-X Delete user
-r Alias username to real system user
-R Remove alias to real system user
-D Use domain password
I ensure my CVSROOT is pointing to the right driectory and enter:
C:\>cvs passwd -a test
Unknown command: `passwd'
CVS commands are:
add Add a new file/directory to the repository
admin Administration front end for rcs
annotate Show last revision where each line was modified
Can someone help? I'm not sure what to do to add users to this environment.
Thanks in advance!
