But this is a clean repository so I don't have any modules. I'm actually trying to create a root module (directory) in the repository. It was/is not obvious to me the best way to go about doing this. I can't call cvs add since I don't have a sandbox yet. That's why I did: cvs checkout ./ This created the CVSROOT directory in my current directory. At this point I can now execute cvs add. But as I said, it appears to be ignoring my environment variable. David indicated that once you have a sandbox cvs ignores the environment variables which would lead me to believe that it's the checkout that is not doing what I'm expecting it to do. I guess it's checking out ./ from /pom2 as opposed to /pom. Thanks, Nick "Bo Berglund" <Bo.Berglund at system3r.se> wrote in message news:mailman.23.1155650517.3158.cvsnt at cvsnt.org... In a command window: set CVSROOT=:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom cvs ls This should show you the top level modules on repository /pom next set CVSROOT=:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom2 cvs ls Now the modules listed are those from repo pom2 This has always worked for me and I use it a lot. Notice that your syntax is wrong. Your environment variable is CVSROOT, not $CVSROOT. The $CVSROOT designator is used when you want to access the environment variable from the script command line in for example CVSROOT/loginfo. But here you are dealing with plain old Windows environment variables and no $ is used.

I've been using the cvsnt command line client (2.5.03) to play around with cvs while I become familiar with the product. Wanting to skip typing the -d global option I set the environment variable $CVSROOT to my cvsroot (:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom). I have two repositories; /pom and /pom2. I then create a temporary directory and from it run: cvs checkout -A ./ This gets the CVSROOT info so that I can then add directories to the repository (maybe there is a better way, but this is what I came up with so far). I then create a directory called Eom in my temporary directory and run: cvs add Eom The output shows: C:\data\temp\cvsinit>cvs add Eom Directory /pom2/Eom added to the repository Why is it using the /pom2 repository as opposed to /pom? Using the CVSNT control panel I do see that /pom2 does have the 'default repository' value set. You can't seem to not have a default repository, which I would think would be useful. When I execute the same statements above but also include the -d global option everything works as expected. Here is my environment variable: C:\data\temp\cvsinit>set $CVSROOT $CVSROOT=:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom The docs show all the environment variables with the preceeding $, not sure if that's just indicating they are environment variables or the variable is actually supposed to have the prepended $. In any case I tried it both with and without the $ and the behavior was the same.
