I'm having troubles with pserver authentication.


If i try this:


cvs passwd -a -r cvsuser testuser
// add testuser to database. Password is also testuser


set cvsroot=:pserver:testuser at cvs:/data 


and then


cvs login                                          // testuser password


i always get a message


cvs [login aborted]: cvsuser: Switch to user failed due to configuration
error. Contact your system administrator.


Cvsuser is has administrator privileges. I'm running cvsnt server version
2.5.03 on Windows Server 2003. I did not have this problems on Windows XP.


Any ideas?


Best regards,
