Hi everyone, It seems that the cvs server was working all along (I just didn't realize it). Access via ssh authenticating against our ldap servers is working fine. I noticed that when modules are checked in, the CVS directory that is created gets perms of 777 and the fileattr.xml file gets perms of 666. As I'm using the sgid bit at the repository root, I don't need the server to set permissions this wide open. Can this be configured? Thanks again for your help.

I'm new to cvs servers, so bear with me here. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'll need to add users to each repository, correct before users will be able to use the repositories? If so, how do I go about doing that? Thanks for your help. Your whole plan sounds good. Looks like your only hangup is the users. I'd start by adding userid's to the system (/etc/passwd) and then configure the repository to get its users from the system. This is done in the config file when you check out the CVSROOT module. Once that works, you can get your cvs server to authenticate through your LDAP server just by getting PAM working for the system. Once you can ssh to the box using LDAP credentials, cvs should just work. Good luck!
