We have an existing GNU CVS v 1.11 server, running on Solaris. We are migrating to CVSNT 2.5.03, running on Windows 2003. We are having issues with the repository on the new server. (We are also changing the authentcaition protocol to sspi, but that is working OK). Our process is as follows: 1. On existing CVS server, have all of the developers check in their code, stop the CVS daemon, and tar up the repository. 2. Copy the tarball to new server. 3. Install CVSNT on new server as per best practices in the Wiki. 4. Unpack the tarball (I used WinRAR). 5. Set up the CVSNT control panel repository configuration tab to point to the extracted repository from the tarball. The Publish Repository, Default Repository, and Online items were selected. The repository "looks" OK, when running an ls against it for instance. However, when the developers check out code and try to compile it, they end up with missing file errors. Any thoughts? I know that the docs specifically state that the you should not use the built in tools to extract anything, but could WinRAR be the culprint?
