I am trying to make a branch read only in CVSNT. The server is on linux(10.0) and CVSNT version 2.5.x.
The command I am using is :
cvs chacl -a read,nowrite,nocreate,notag,nocontrol -r branch1 -m "Branch is locked for commit"
The error which comes is :
cvs chacl: in directory .:
cvs [chacl aborted]: CVS directory without administration files present.  Cannot continue until this directory is deleted or renamed.

I tried the command even after renaming the CVS directory but it does nothing. Please help.
