It sounds like your domain is setup strangely - it's letting users who aren't a member of the domain connect via sspi or something... that's way beyond anything I can help with (my expertise in that stops at disabling simple file sharing and disabling guest). > If I select a domain user (my server is a win2003 server machine attached > to our enterprise network) the complaint is that the repository doesn't > exists (remember, I acessed it a few minutes ago when the "Run as user" > option was "(client user)"). > > D:\Arquiv~1\GNU\WinCvs~1.3\Cvsnt>cvs95 -d :sspi:n992:/cvsroot ls > cvs [server aborted]: Repository directory E:/cvsroot does not exist: Permission > denied Is E: a network drive? You can't put repositories on network drives - it'll fail in various ways and isn't supported. > [footnote: as our network have more than 2000 users, I needed to change > the user regedit'ing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CVS\Pserver; > the drop down list just shown the local users and a few domain ones] The list is every active user known to the system - if they aren't being shown then attempting to logon as them probably isn't going to work. > So, I have two questions: > 1. should the "run as" user be member of local administrators? Definately not - Use a nonpriviliged guest user (I probably shouldn't show administrators in the list at all). > 2. can't I use a local user for "run as"? Yes, this works fine. Tony
