"Does anyone else use CVSNT as a server?" Are you kidding? There are tons of outfits out there doing precisely this... We have been using CVSNT for 2 years now and have not had any problems whatsoever in this area. The only inconveniences we have sen are that sometimes a cvs.exe process is hung on the server for some unknown reason. THis is not noted by the users until they try to commit a new revision of the file this cvs.exe process was operating on at the time of failure. THis file is now locked and cannot be updated on the server. This happens very seldom and is cured in our case by having a nightly cleanup task that runs at 04:00 and kills all cvs.exe that lives at this time. We run on Windows 2000 server (not a PDC), which is dedicated to CVS usage. On this we also run IIS5 in order to serve out web acces via CVSWeb. This has sometimes failed to authenticate the users but then we apply the Microsoft trick (restart IIS) and it goes away. Does not affect CVSNT one bit though, this is Microsoft software acting up. We have clearly more problem with other software than CVSNT. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Jefferson, Anthony [mailto:Anthony.Jefferson at gd-ais.com] Sent: den 10 januari 2003 15:53 To: 'cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook' Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Diff and Merge Error Using 184.108.40.206 Tony Hoyle replied: >Jefferson, Anthony wrote: >> retrieving revision 1.6 >> retrieving revision 1.7 > Merging differences between 1.6 and 1.7 into build.xml >> build.xml already contains the differences between 1.6 and 1.7 >> >That's your answer.

The server reports this but it is simply not true. If I were to commit my local version I would overwrite changes to 1.7. Upon further research I discovered that when I use cvs.exe with a local repository everything works correctly. The update feature merges the two version fine. However, when I use the pserver version I get the error previously described. This behavior is seen using every client I've tested (wincvs,jcvs,cvs.exe). We are now using a Linux version of CVS until we figure out why CVSNT does not behave as expected. Does anyone else use CVSNT as a server? If so, are they experiencing any merge difficulties? As we would prefer to use our Windows 2000 machine for archiving, any help would be appreciated. Sorry for putting this back at the top of the news chain but our connection to news is busted and I was forced to use email.
