OK, now I'm getting frustrated! (page down to see previous dialogue and specs) I wiped out the installation I did and started fresh on the new server. One interesting thing to note: after I uninstalled and reinstalled cvsnt, the control applet recognized my previous repositories, even though I had deleted them from my d:\cvsrepo. So, I created a testing repository, following everything I did on my previous successful installation. In wincvs1.3, I get this error message when trying to import: cvs [import aborted]: unrecognized auth response from nts0986: cvs [server aborted]: Authentication failed In wincvs1.2, I get this error message when trying to import: cvs [add aborted]: CVSROOT kkolle at nts0986:/testing must be an absolute pathname Also, after I set the cvsroot in the command line with: set cvsroot =:sspi:nts0986:/testing [enter], then I enter cvs passwd -a kkolle, I get the following error: cvs [passwd aborted]: no such user kkolle in CVSROOT/passwd At this point, I don't even have a passwd file in the file system! But, I did get this command to work once (cvs passwd -a kkolle), but I haven't been able to get it to work since (not sure on the sequence of events of how I got it to work) ********************************** Here is my config file: # Set this to "no" if pserver shouldn't check system users/passwords SystemAuth=no # Put CVS lock files in this directory rather than directly in the repository. #LockDir=/var/lock/cvs # Use a CVS Lock server (overrides LockDir setting). LockServer=nts0986:2402 # Set `TopLevelAdmin' to `yes' to create a CVS directory at the top # level of the new working directory when using the `cvs checkout' # command. #TopLevelAdmin=no # Set `LogHistory' to `all' or `TOFEWGCMAR' to log all transactions to the # history file, or a subset as needed (ie `TMAR' logs all write operations) #LogHistory=TOFEWGCMAR ********************************************* Here is my passwd file: kkolle: ********************************************* Here is my admin file: cvsadmin ********************************************* Any help would be much appreciated.

The passwd file is used to validate that a user can have access to the repository, but it doesn't actually store a password, just a username. To clarify, I don't log into cvs after I open up wincvs. In my 'working' version of cvsnt, I had SystemAuth=no NOT commented out (no '#'), because this says don't check for any authorization (i.e. using cvs login)...... I believe I said this right. I think I'll have to go through all of the steps to initially install cvsnt again. And then, I'll copy over all my xxx,v files so hopefully I can still keep my revision history. Thanks!

I don't have a passwd file and I don't log in when using sspi. Both of those are handled by the operating system. I'd try deleting the passwd file, and NOT logging in (close the DOS window to clear this?). Check your CVSROOT/config file setting for SystemAuth, I left it commented out: [#SystemAuth=no] Of course this may all depend upon your client cvs.ese and the client's OS. If Windows, ensure you get fresh cvs.exe and/or cvs95.exe from the cvsnt download file (Iuse build 57J). I don't use WinCVS, but [TortoiseCVS and PeggyPro on the client, with ViewCVS on the Server]. -Paul KKolle at gkservices.com wrote: When I make a change to a file and then try and commit that change to the repository, I get the following message in wincvs: Fatal error, aborting. cvs [commit aborted]: kkolle: no such user If I try and do a checkout, I get the following in wincvs: cvs [checkout aborted]: unrecognized auth response from nts0986: cvs [server aborted]: Authentication failed Here are the tasks I have done so far: I added my repositories in the service control panel. (I did this the same way on my previous install, which was working fine) I ran this command in dos, set cvsroot=:sspi::/ I ran this command in dos, cvs passwd -a kkolle, and hit enter twice. So, now I have one line in my passwd file of 'kkolle:'. This is the same thing that I already had when I copied all of my files over to the new box. The .owner file has kkolle in it. I have sspi selected in Admin/Preferences in wincvs.....and I have the correct servername and repository name entered. Any ideas of where I went wrong....what step(s) I might have missed? Paul Russell @yahoo.ca> cc: Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Moving from existing installation to a new 01/14/2003 07:19 installation PM Worked for me, except had fun editting some of the paths in CVSROOT files. If all your paths are the same, then you can probably just copy it without editting any CVSROOT files. I had to fake out the CVSNT first by manually editting the non-repository file (no ,v) in the repository to fix the paths (i.e. [repo/CVSROOT/config], not [repo/CVSROOT/config,v]. That got CVSNT up and running. Then had to check out CVSROOT, apply the same changes, and check it in again, so that the changes would be preserved properly. -Paul KKolle at gkservices.com wrote: First, here are my specs: Version: 22.214.171.124 Build 57j OS: Win2000 Client: WinCVS 126.96.36.199 Beta 10 (Build 1) We are retiring our existing win2000 box and we have a new replacement win2000 box. I have existing repositories that I need ported over to the new box. Is there an easy way to do this? Our existing cvs setup works just fine. We are using sspi. I ran the .exe (from www.cvsnt.org) and installed the program on the new box. But, my question is: Can I just copy over all my files for each module under my d:\cvsrepo to the same directory structure on the new server? Is cvsnt smart enough to recognize all the files just copied over (after stopping and restarting cvsnt)? What is the recommended way of moving repositories to different machines? [The new server has the same exact name as the old server did] Thanks in advance!
