1. THe c:\cvstemp dir must have full access for the local SYSTEM account.
   SYSTEM is not member of the 'Everyone' group...

2. Which protocol are you using? ntserver, sspi, pserver or what?
   They authenticate differently and use the passwd file differently too.

Subject: [cvsnt] Impersonation failed


I got build 57i up and running on XP Pro last week. I set users to be
authenticated against our domain and impersonation turned on. I have
separate /cvstemp with rights assigned to everyone and a respository with
the same access rights. So far so good.

It worked until I started to assign access control to individual modules.
The first mistake I made was to use local machine user groups containing
domain users for access control. That did not work and resulted in various
"access denied" messages. After figuring that out I then created the
necessary groups as global groups in the domain and started assigning access
rights based on those groups.

Oops -- troubled people showed up complaining about CVS problems! I thought
everything will be back fine if I give access rights to Everyone but it was
too late. And also the error was a new one -- impersonation failed. At the
moment CVSNT works only if impersonation is disabled or if it is enabled
together with local account authentication (but I really need domain
aunthetication). So the problem is related to domain account access. But
without impersonation users are still successfully authenticated against the
domain! I am really running out of useful brain energy, does anybody have
any ideas what has happened to my CVSNT? I need to have access control, that
was the whole idea of using it.
