>From the manual: "If SystemAuth = Yes the user is considered to be an administrator ... if they are in the 'Administrators' group (NT) ..." Also you can set the permissions on CVSROOT to restrict changes to that too e.g. xcacls c:\cvsnt /T /P BUILTIN\Administrators:F "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:F" /Y xcacls c:\cvsnt\cvsroot /T /E /G HESA_NTNET\cvs-dev:C xcacls c:\cvsnt\cvsroot\CVSROOT /T /E /R HESA_NTNET\cvs-dev >From what I have read CVSNT was originally a windowsNT port of cvs. It now has features that are still sadly lacking in the original cvs and has also been back-ported to run on *nix systems too. hope this helps Ade -----Original Message----- From: BERTIN Philippe [mailto:philippe.bertin at cnh.com] Sent: Wednesday 13 October 2004 09:04 To: 'cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook' Subject: [cvsnt] Impact of cvsroot/config SystemAuth- setting when using sspi (and not pserver) to administer CVS 'Llo All, After some quests for information on how to administer CVS (on CVSNT), it is still unclear to me how to administer CVS using the sspi- protocol. I tried on the cvsgui newsgroup, but after a hint from someone, I try my same question here. I understand that in cvsroot/config, there is a setting "SystemAuth" that should be set to no, in order to have cvsroot/admin be taken into account for determining who can administer CVS. But elsewhere, I see that cvsroot/admin is only considered when using pserver as the protocol. So I'd tend to think that I should set SystemAuth to yes. But then I don't know how to add an adminstrator to CVSNT ... This altogether makes it still unclear to me how I can administer CVS using sspi, because that is the protocol I want to use in the long run. I could eventually make a pserver entry to be able to administer CVS using the pserver- protocol, but I would like to disable the pserver- protocol completely (for security purposes, I'd like to delete pserver_protocol.dll). Another thing (not on the subject line, though) is not 100% clear: the open-source cvs- daemon that is generally delivered with Linux systems (e.g. with SuSE), is that CVSNT ? Or what is the relation between these 2 (i.e. between the open-source cvs daemon and CVSNT) ? Kind regards, PhB. _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs ______________________________________________________________ This incoming email was virus scanned for HESA by MessageLabs. ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ This outgoing email was virus scanned for HESA by MessageLabs. ______________________________________________________________
