have u tried using the cmd : cvs passwd -r realUser -a localUser > Hi All, > > I have installed the CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 on Windows 2003 > Server Enterprise. Everything works fine until I try to bind a non system > password to a user by the command cvs passwd -a <account name>. After this > command, I get the following error message (logging command included): > > C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>set > cvsroot=:sserver:cvsuser at deepthought:/TEST > C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>cvs login > Logging in to :sserver:cvsuser at deepthought:2401:/TEST > CVS Password: > Fatal error, aborting. > cvs [login aborted]: cvsuser: Switch to user failed due to configuration > error. > Contact your System Administrator. > > Apparently, the system recognizes the password well because I get another > error message when I use incorrect password or the user system password > (which is different to the CVS password). > > I use neither the active directory service nor a domain server.
