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.

While doing the following:

	cvs -d :ssh:user at servername:/cvsroot co module

And doing this on another computer:

	cvs -d :ssh:user at servername:/cvsroot rtag -F -R -b tagName

The computer that is doing the rtag gets this error:
	waiting for SYSTEM's lock in

Note that module is very large - many files/folders are being checked
out, but does checkout do a lock?  Why?  I can see that rtag would need
to do a lock, but why checkout?

We are using cvs nt and a lock server.

Thanks for any help you can give.
