If you install the same version of CVSNT on the new machine as you have on the old one, then you should be fine doing this: 1) Copy all of the files and folders from the old server repository to the new one (including the CVSROOT folder) 2) Use the CVSNT control panel applet on the new server to add the copied repository(ies) to the new server. Make sure to set the same name as you had on the old server 3) Go over the CVSROOT scripts if you use such and make sure they work on the new server (for instance if you use PERL you have to make sure it is properlyt installed). 4) Now your users should be able to check out their modules from the new server. They should do a new checkout to a fresh location in order not to have traces of old info in their sandboxes. There *are* ways to avoid this by using WinCvs and modifying the CVSROOT strings on existing sandboxes using its macro, but the most straightforward way is to simply check out from the new server. > One more issue is that, the users that i am logging >in as in both the machines are different. This is just an issue for the checkout process, you have to use a valid login to check out the sources of course... HTH /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
