I am trying to write a backup script to backup my CVS repository. To make sure nobody is using the repository I stop CVS, then perform the backup, and finally attempt to restart CVS using the command 'net start cvs'. This command fails with the error 3523 after about 15 seconds. The strange thing is I still have access to the repository, but it seems to be left in an unstable state as far as windows is concerned. If I try to now stop the service using either the command line or the cvsnt control panel applet it informs me "Couldn't stop service: The service cannot accept control messages at this time". Has anybody else come across this problem? I am running Window Server 2003 with CVS NT 2.0.26. Thanks, Steve.
