Hi, I just upgraded our CVSNT server from an older version to the most recent. When the setup was completed, it said that the machine had to be rebooted for the changes to take effect. Errrr.... NOT! This is a heavy-duty production server, and I cannot just reboot it whenever I want, or whenever an application feels like it. I have ignored the suggestion, and it seems to be working for now (I've suggested to the PTB that a reboot should be rescheduled at the earliest convenient opportunity). <soapbox> Reboots should only be required when adjusting things at the system level. CVS is *not* a system level application, it is a user-level application and should therefore never require rebooting the machine. </soapbox> BTW, upgrading the server seems to have resolved my earlier problems. Thanks, Tony and Glen, for the hints pointing me in that direction (shoulda thought of that myself ;-) -- Jim
