cvs [ls aborted]: cvs [server aborted]: Repository directory E:/DATA/CVSRepo does not exist: Permission denied I'm the Windows Server Admin working with Matt Schuckman on this problem. CVSNT is running on a Server 2003 system, and users receive the above error unless "bypass traverse checking" is enabled for them in the Local Security Settings/User Rights Assignment node. This points to a problem accessing some folder or file. However, I have enabled auditing of all object access failures, and none are recorded. NTFS "Modify" permissions are granted to all the cvs folders, and NTFS "traverse folder" permissions are applied to all parent folders to the top of the tree. Additionally, these users can manually access the repository and successfully add, modify and delete files and subfolders. It's a violation of company security policy to enable "bypass traverse checking" on the server (and obviously not best practice due to what could be unintended consequences.) It seems to me that there must be a file/folder somewhere that we've overlooked. Here are the folders I'm aware of the need to properly set ACLs on (as well as their parents up to the top of the directory tree): temp or scratch directory program files\cvsnt directory repository, including cvsroot
