Did you configure winbind in /etc/cvsnt/PServer to talk to ntlm_auth?
Is winbindd running?
Does winbindd work with your AD? use wbinfo to check.

Did you specify the certificates to use (CertificateFile and PrivateKeyFile
in /etc/cvsnt/Pserver)?

WinCVS has a script to do this... and within the last few weeks on this list
a couple of scripts appeared to do something similar... you'll have to dig
through the list archive to locate it ... or you could just checkout into a
new sandbox :-)
