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.

In my case (see the thread:  cvs [update aborted]: cannot rename file
the problem is not on the server side. Its on the client side.
It says: 

cvs [update aborted]: cannot rename file .new.glbldata.c to glbldata.c: 
    No such file or directory

"No such file or directory" sounds like it's NOT THERE!
The ".new.glbldata.c" is not in the client's directory yet?

By the time I look, it's there. So, I have a workaround in my
perl script that renames the file if it sees that cvs failed.
That works, but has problems because next time update is run, it tries
to merge (because the Entries file did not get updated) 
and ... it's a mess.

BTW, I have disabled my Virus Scan software.

So, in my case, the retry might help. But it would be nice to really
get to the bottom of this. Sounds like its causing a lot of headaches.
