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.

When our build server tries to tag files that have been renamed we get an

T app/console/Migrator.Console_2005.csproj.vspscc
T app/console/MigratorConsole.cs
cvs server: Tagging app/core
cvs [server aborted]: could not open lock file
`/SES/ThirdParty/Migrator/app/core/,.directory_history,': File exists

I looked in the actual repository and found no ,.directory_history file.

The client machine is WIN2003SP2 with CVS Client: 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 2471
The server is the same OS with server:  2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2644

Any help is greatly appreciated!
