Hi All,

While issuing the command cvs commit -m "message", I am getting error

cvs server: cannot lock

This is a binary file, which is being added to the repository using command
"cvs add -kb UA5000GIPMB.cfg". I had already added lot of other binary
files, with similar name and content.

I have even tried to add the file again after removing it from the CVS
repository, but every time I am getting the same error (only with this
specfic file).

Please help, in finding the reason(s) from such errors.
