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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last week we made major network changes here in our office. Moved from NT4 Domains -> AD on Win2003. We also moved from CVSNT 126.96.36.199 57g to 2.0.4 (it's what we'd been testing against). New servers, new setup, new services. Basically, a big PITA - but needed. With our new setup, all our usernames have gone from title caps to lower case (was "Mark" now "mark"). CVSNT seems to recognise these as different users. Sandboxes aren't a problem, however notifications are not behaving. In the fileattr file, there are two different listings for users - one with title caps and the other without. Those users are receiving double notifications (as our exchange server is case insensitive). It also is sending notifications when it shouldn't - "Ian" is listed as a notification target, and "ian" commits and gets a single notice that he committed. Now, one fix is to blow out every cvsattr on the server (there are hundreds) and recreate them by resetting all the files. Another might be to write a script to convert all the user names. But really, CVSNT probably should be case insensitive in this instance - Windows simply cannot support two usernames that differ in caps and A *nix admin would be strung up if he DID support it. With this changeover, I've been a bit too busy to watch the list daily. I don't see this discussed, but I apologize if it's already been addressed. I promise to do better ;-) ___________________________________________ IMPORTANT: This email is intended for the use of the individual addressee(s) named above and may contain information that is confidential, privileged or unsuitable for overly sensitive persons with low self-esteem, no sense of humor or irrational religious beliefs.
