Hi there,


I am hoping that any of you might be able to point me in the right


Last night our infrastructure team installed the latest MS patches and
rebooted the server. Today we noticed that our passwords to access the
CVS repository are invalid. The services are running and no modification
where made to CVS.


Our CVS installation is quite simple:

1) We are running version  2.0.41a 

2) Using the pserver protocol 

3) The user accounts have been created locally on the server and
associate to a CVSuser group.


We have had this setup for 2 years we no issues. However, now when we
attempt to access the CVS repository cvs returns as "authorization
failed"  using cvs command or using Eclipse


Here is the command we are using 


C:\>set cvsroot=:pserver:XXXX at SERVERNAME:C:\CVS-Data\PIO\Java

C:\>cvs login


Logging in to :pserver:XXXX at SERVERNAME:2401:C:\CVS-Data\PIO\Java

CVS password: **********

cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server ahst-od-adgdocs
rejected access to C:\CVS-Data\PIO\Java for user XXXX


I would really appreciate if someone could let me know what could be
causing the problem. Everything was working well until the server was
patched and rebooted


Many thanks in advance
