I think I know what may be happening.  Let me see if I have this correct:

--You connect to IIS with NT Authentication

--You are running the python script with that authority

--You are trying to get the python script to validate with SSPI to another
machine (gambit)

If that is all true, I believe the problem is that the NT Authentication
credentials are not transitive--that is, IIS can impersonate you ONLY on the
local machine and it does not apply to the other machine (gambit).

Try looking that up in the MS KB and you'll find it there.  I would suggest
either moving your script to run on the CVS server or use pserver | sspi
with a CVS Login (pserver only so that you can use a dedicated acct and not
have to hardcode your password in the script or pass it in clear text over
your network to the IIS box).

Subject: [cvsnt] Add Module script

Hi all.  I'm writing a CGI script that allows a user to go to a web page and
add a "Client" (module within our ClientFiles repository) and I've run into
a snag.

Doing this through NT4 via IIS (urg!) with a python script invoking a batch
file.  CVSNT ( 57g) is running on Gambit (different server).  The
batch file runs fine when I invoke it from the command line, but here's what
I get when invoked through python:


D:\CVSAdd>cd \Sandbox\_Template

D:\Sandbox\_Template>cvs update -APCdR
Cannot access D:/AXIOMCVS/ClientFiles/CVSROOT

Permission denied

D:\Sandbox\_Template>cvs -d :sspi:Gambit:/ClientFiles import -m "Auto
Imported from _Template" testAdd4 Axiom Initialized
Cannot access D:/AXIOMCVS/ClientFiles/CVSROOT

Permission denied

D:/AXIOMCVS/ClientFiles is the proper path on Gambit.  All employees
(including myself) have full permissions on that CVSROOT.

This failure seems odd to me because I (ian) have full access to the entire
repository, and use it every day with SSPI.

Any thoughts?
