[cvsnt] Windows Server 2003 service pack 1 install broke my cvsnt

Hi all,

Permission with Windows is always the same thing !!!

I break my head on several problems with "permission denied" and found some solutions :

	--> User which runs service (pserver, sshd ..) must have some extended rights and in W2003, those default extended rights for Adminstrators, System etc ..., has changed and the first impact is that a process couldn't not invoke setuid(..) method whitout raising a permission exception which is pretty boring for a pserver or sshd !!!

	--> I found a lot of informations in cygwin site 
		Look at for necessary extended rights :
	            . "Switching User Context" 
			. "New setuid concept" 

Hope that help,

I'm fairly certain the local policy is the same as always.

The SP1 is quite extensive. I haven't yet found anything in the release
notes that looks promising.

Could you elaborate a bit on what would cause the error message:
Cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server <server> rejected
access to /cvsroot for user <user>.

Sounds to me like it could be a problem with SSPI authentication.
Running a cvs login with the cvs root string of
:sspi:Administrator at hostname:/cvsroot returns the same error. I've been
focusing on what changes SP1 might have made in this area, but it would
be helpful if I knew a little more about what cvsnt does, up until
writing that error message to the console.
