We recently migrated our repository from an NT4 server to a Win2k server. In the process, we upgraded CVSNT to build 68. All of that might be unrelated, but provided just in case. For a single file, all users are getting a message when trying to commit a change: cvs [server aborted]: cannot rename file d:/cvs/pmp-docs/,sysTools_Readme.txt, to d:/cvs/pmp-docs/sysTools_Readme.txt,v: Permission denied All other operations on other files seem normal. I believe this started when cvs 'hung' when I was trying to check in this file. We are all using the WinCVS client, using the ntserver protocol. I cannot find a file named d:/cvs/pmp-docs/,sysTools_Readme.txt. But the file d:/cvs/pmp-docs/sysTools_Readme.txt,v does exist. It's read-only attribute is unset, whereas all other files in that directory are set to read-only. I've looked in the WINNT\Temp directory and see several CVS related directories and a few .tmp files, some of which are owned by me and have the contents of the file I'm trying to check in. But I'm not sure what to do with any of them to fix the problem. On an unrelated note, we are also seeing a new message when updating an entire directory: cvs server: cannot open directory . for empty check: No such file or directory Any help would be appreciated.
