Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.


Sorry about the lack of info.

The server OS is Windows 2003
The client OS is Windows XP Pro
The CVS client is WinCVS (Build 1)
The CVSROOT is :pserver:tbeavers at cvs01:/CVS
The ACLMode is set to compat (We grant all perms on this server, then
restrict as needed)
No sandbox
And still no go with rchacl

Here are a few lines from the trace log:

setting ACL for directory skyway/releng
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_create(directory)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_read(D:/CVS/skyway/releng)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_find(acl)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_getvalue(@user)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_getvalue(@branch)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_getvalue(@merge)
16:32:38: S -> fileattr_batch_delete()
16:32:38: S -> Name_Repository((null),skyway/releng)
16:32:38: S -> map_repository(D:/CVS/skyway/releng)
16:32:38: S -> lookup_module2(skyway/releng,8047)
16:32:38: S -> Repository = D:/CVS/skyway/releng
16:32:38: S -> Mapped repository = D:/CVS/skyway/releng
16:32:38: S -> lookup_module2(skyway/releng,8048)

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks for your support,

We need much more information, including the server and client os, the
CVSROOT being used (eg: :pserver:host/repo), the ACLMode (as set in
CVSROOT/config), the permissions on the repository dir, the results of
enabling 'clients are allowed to trace server' and then tracing the
chacl (don't send the trace to the newsgroup - read the trace and send
send maybe one or three lines of relavent information), the current
directory - is it a sandbox etc etc.  Does rchacl work?
