Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

CVSNT 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build 2088 on Windows XP SP2 with MS SQL 2000
developer with SP4 I have a complete install & I have python installed.

I have created the history file in CVSROOT as is required and it is being
populated by cvs commands. I have updated our CVSROOT/config file & changed
LogHistory from the default to TMAR. BTW I have disabled SQL history logging
just in case this was causing the problem.
After commiting my changes back to the repository I see the following

new revision: 1.5; previous revision 1.4
cvs commit: Rebuilding administrative file database.

Even though I have done this, stopped & restarted CVSNT via control panel &
even rebooted server machine the updated info is not used. 
I expect only write commands to be included in the history. I am seeing
update commands but no tag entries being logged to the file. If I check the
server RCS files (*,v) they have the tags.
So what are no TAG entries being logged & what is the general procedure
after commiting CVSROOT files?
Cheers, Brian
