Yes, just one domain controller.

Thanks for your help. It seems to be quite a weird problem and I have no 
resolution.  All new users are unable to commit regardless that they 
have appropriate NTFS permissions.

Here's more information about my setup:

1. We are using SSPI.  CVSNT Server is setup to impersonate the user.

2. We have the following domain groups:

	CvsAdmins - can create new modules, do everything
	CvsUsersRO - read only, no commits
	CvsUsersRW - can commit, but not create new modules

3. We have the following directory structure:

	F:\CvsRoot -- Root for all repositories
	F:\CvsRoot\Repo1 -- a repository
	F:\CvsRoot\Repo1\Module1 -- a module within Repo1
	F:\CvsTemp -- temp directory

Again, this has been working fine until we noticed the other day that a 
few new users couldn't commit.  Older users CAN commit.  Both users 
belong to the exact same Windows Groups.

If anyone else has some ideas I would greatly appreciate them!
