There are two possibilities to make this work with pserver: 1) Add a *real* user to the password file using the cvs passwd command. By *real* I mean a user account on the PC where CVSNT runs. 2) Add a fictitious user (as I assume you have done) using the cvs passwd command. In this case you *must* also specify the *real* user account to be used for this cvs user. CVS does not allow anyone to use the system that is not a user in the context of the CVSNT server. The account must be either a local account or a domain account depending on settings in the config file. For ntserver and sspi protocols this comes naturally, but for pserver you may fall into the trap of believing you can add arbitrary users, but that is not so. You must either use an existing user or alias the nonexsisting one to a real user. When CVS does its job it operates under the aliased account, but logs the operations as the login user. So you can have one dedicated cvsuser acccount on the server and let all pserver logins use the same without losing the trackability of the cvs operations. /Bo On Tue, 07 Jan 2003 10:23:04 +0100, Gregor Kova? <gregor.kovac at mikropis.si> wrote: >Hi! > >Today I have installed CVSNT 184.108.40.206 (Build 65) on a Windows 2000 Server. > >The FAQ at http://w1.858.telia.com/~u85831169/InstallCVSNT.html shows how to >set CVS up to use local usernames from Windows accounts. >I have tried to make CVS use passwd file with no success. :( >I have tried SystemAuth=no and SystemAuth=yes, but nothing worked. >I could add users to passwd file, but if they were not aliased to a system >user they could not log in (getting "No such user" error). > >Any idea what I am doing wrong ? > >Best regards, > Kovi > >P.S.: I used the default install options. > >Dyer, Neil wrote: > >> I have to setup CVSNT 220.127.116.11 such that the server and the repository >> storage are on separate machines.
