Hi Arthur,
  Thanks for the prompt response.
  when you say I have to enable the Audit on the server, which server you mean, Do you mean the server in which the CVS repository was? And also how can I enable that Audit?
  And then I often did try this command cvs co -r <tagname> 
  I always get this response
cvs [checkout aborted]: must specify at least one module or directory
  Please advise.

You need to have audit enabled on the server, then you can use the SQL
client for whatever database you are using to get this info. It may be
possible to get some of this from "history" (if that is enabled) but
it's not as reliable. The name of the user who applied a tag is not
stored in the repo - only in history (maybe) and definitely in audit.

cvs co -r TAGNAME .
