Hi, I have recently started facing a problem with CVS. I am not too sure what the problem really it. I am using CVSNT ver 18.104.22.168. Things were working fine until we upgraded the OS on the windows server to Windows 2003 server. Since the upgrade while all the check-in / check-out go through fine, cvs mails have completely died out. CVS exits with the following error message cvs server: cannot write entry to log filter: perl G:\database\media_components\CVSROOT\mail.pl "dev/app cvslabel.lbl,1.6,1.7" 100027 G:\database\dev_components\CVSROOT\MailingList.txt I for once though this was an issue with security permissions. I therefore changed the settings so that cvsservice runs as an administrator who has full control on perl.exe, cmd.exe and the temporary (G:\temp) directory. I saw another thread which suggested copying cmd.exe from c:\winnt\system32 folder to the folder where cvsnt was installed. Even that didn't help. I then though that there might be an issue with running perl and something that the perl script was doing I therefore changed the loginfo script to look something like this DEFAULT cmd /K dir which if everything worked fine should have opened up a command window and shown the directory listing. However this too didn't help and I got the following error message cvs server: cannot write entry to log filter: cmd /K dir After following all the suggestions that I could find on the mailing list I am suspecting if CVSNT 22.214.171.124 has any compatibility issues with Windows 2003 server. If the only solution is to upgrade the CVS server I have a few more questions - - Will that mean I will have to upgrade the cvs clients as well. I am currently using WinCVS 126.96.36.199 Beta 8 (Build 1) Would really appreciate any help in this regard.
