If you simply want two copies of the repositories, rsync may be your
best bet . .It's just a really fancy cp if you've never heard of it, it
has pages and pages of great options.

I would probabaly suggest that you use something like cvslock to lock
the repository, do the copy, then unlock it.  Make sure that unlock the
copied repository as well (remove the lockfiles, if you don't have a
LockDir specified in CVSROOT).

Is that what you're looking for?

Could anyone give some information on how to synchronize two cvs
the idea being that one mirrors the other. The master server is based
on NT
using cvsnt, and other runs on Linux.

So far from what I understand, both cvs servers must have the same
repositories, and initially the mirror server would have to import my
modules and then run updates on modifications. I am simply concerned
preserving history and tagging information during synchronization. Do
know if there are any products out there that would support this
functionality (I know of CVSup) but one of the servers is cvsnt, and
runs on Linux.

Would you have any ideas?
