Oh, I'm sorry, I've got it wrong... I misunderstood "impersonation". I've created my users with the cvs passwd command (which added them in CVSROOT/passwd) and set SystemAuth=no in the CVSROOT/config file and now it behaves like I wanted it to. Btw, setting file permissions was not an option, since I must keep the repository on a fat32 filesystem (don't ask :) ). Still, I think that CVSNT shouldn't allow disabled accounts to login (when it falls back to system authentication). ----- Original Message ----- From: "pvgoran" <pvgoran.ml at macondo.ru> To: "Mihnea Balta" <dark_lkml at mymail.ro> Sent: Saturday, January 31, 2004 4:11 PM Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Windows "guest" account and impersonation > > Hello Mihnea, > Saturday, January 31, 2004, 7:40:26 PM, you wrote: > > MB> Hello, > > MB> I'm currently running a CVSNT server on Windows XP with impersonation > MB> enabled, and I've come across this problem: I can login into the cvs > MB> repository as "guest" and no password, even if the guest account is > MB> disabled.
