Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

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.

Version: Build 57j
OS: Win2000
Client: WinCVS 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!
