Hi, I'm really hoping someone out there can help me out with this. I've scoured the archives already, and have found several ppl who have exhibited this problem before, but I haven't found a solution that works for me yet. I am running CVSNT 2.5.03 (build 2151) on a Win2K SP3 machine. I have recently created a new user (Thomas) in my ADS who I want to give access to my CVS tree, but am having trouble succeeding. If I add Thomas to the admin group, he is able to view, checkin, checkout, etc without any problems. As soon as I remove him from the admin group, I get the following msg from CVS when doing a checkout -c: cvs [server aborted]: cannot change permissions on temporary directory D:\CVS\Temp/cvs-serv2344: Permission denied Now, I figured this has something to do with permissions over the D:\CVS\Temp directory, but can't figure out what. Thomas is part of my "CVS Users" group which has the following permissions: D:\: List Folder Contents D:\CVS: List Folder Contents D:\CVS\Temp Full Control Additionally, the System account has Full Control over the entire drive, and the CVS service runs under localsystem account. If I try to map the d:\cvs\temp directory to my PC using Thomas' login credentials, I can view & create new folders at will without any issues. I'm sure this is something incredibly silly that I am overlooking, but for the life of me, I can't seem to figure out the correct permission combination required to get CVS to work properly for a non-admin user. I've already stopped and restarted my CVS & Lock service to make sure that they weren't hanging somewhere, and still can't seem to get it working. Any help or suggestions would be tremendously appreciated. Thanks so much! Eric
