I have two Win2K servers that I thought were identically set up but obviously aren't. One is a test server where I tryout things like cvsnt and the other is our live server. Everything works fine on the test server but pserver logins by users including a domain i.e. domain\user (doesn't matter if it is a local domain or not) fails. Actually the login works but a checkout doesn't. I get the error cannot create read lock in repository 'D:/PROD-CVS/APE/APE/(docs)': No such file or directory. When I trying 2.0.25 on the test server I had chosen not to install the LSA helper originally because there were many people were having problems with it and I didn't know it was required for pserver impersonation to work. When I logged in with a domain pserver user this was the error that I saw. After reading the FAQ and installing the LSA helper everything started to work fine. When I installed 2.0.25 (including the LSA helper) on the live server although it let the pserver domain users login I would see the read lock error. Pserver logins without a domain work fine. Any thoughts on where I starting looking for problems? Chris
