I recently upgraded to cvsnt 2.5.01.1927. Since the upgrade I am having a frequent problem in which the cvslock service appears to hang. At the same time it appears like many instances of the cvs.exe process get kicked off but they also appear hung. (normally, they appear, do their work, and then terminate). In other word, the numbers of cvs processes on the server increase rapidly. When this happens cvs clients are not able to access the repository. I am running Windows 2003 Standard Edition on a dual 2.8GHz box with 1GB for RAM. Here is the error in the event log. Faulting application cvslock.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp. I also see some of these errors in the event log but note that these were not happening at the same time that cvslock crashed [ffffffff] The specified network name is no longer available. The clients using the server are all using the sspi protocol. Also we are running on a Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain. A couple of other things to note. The repository is quite busy, with about 40 developers using it, but the bulk of the work the server does is serving requests that originate from cruise control which we use to run continuous integration builds. I upgraded the server this weekend and this problem has happened 3 times in the last two days. Have you seen this problem before? Any ideas about how to rectify this situation would be greatly appreciated.
