I'm using CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2151 on a Window 2000 server, accessing it from a Windows XP client running 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382. I was using :sspi:garyl at cvs-server:/CVS-Repository. It just stopped working and I now get authorization failed messages for any and all commands. For example: > cvs stat cvs [status aborted]: authorization failed: server cvs-server rejected access to /CVS-Repository for user garyl I do not know of anything that changed on the client or cvs-server and I've rebooted both. I found I can use pserver ok. My account on the domain, local to the XP client and local to the cvs-server all have the same password. What else should I look for to troubleshoot this? I also find my garyl account is getting locked out of the domain and/or the cvs-server (which isn't in the domain, but in a workgroup) after a few tries at executing CVS commands. By the way, I can only use pserver if I use the -d :pserver:cvs-server:/CVS-Repository switch. Changing the env var CVSROOT to the :pserver: location doesn't override the :sspi: location in the CVS\Root file. Is this normal? Do I have to change all the Root files in my working copy if I change protocols? I was hoping a checkout or update with the -d would update the Root files in my working copy, but no such luck. Thanks for any help you can offer, Garyl
