I had a CVSNT v2.0.41a problem in Win2000 Pro server configuration. I logged with an administrator onto the server and installed the CVSNT software. Then I tried to use some instructions to let the CVS system to recognize the administrator. What I did are:
1. set cvsroot to :pserver:administrator at firebox-700:/TEST (Note: firebox-700 is my server name)
2. in cvsroot folder, created a ".passwd" text file and put "administrator:" in the first line. Also I created a admin file and put the "administrator" in the first line.
3. open command window and run the command:
cvs passwd -a administrator
From the instructions I got, I should be prompted to enter a password BUT I didn't. Instead an error message says "there is no administrator user in the passwd file". I don't know why.
My cvs repository folder is d:\cvsrepo\test. Do I need to use d:\cvsrepo\test to replace the TEST in the step 1 above?
