Don't change the user for cvsservice.exe unless you're sure you know the consequences - and when setting up definately don't as it'll just introduce other issues. cvsservice.exe creates its own SPN - I'm not sure it'll even authenticate unless it's mapped to the machine account - kerberos is very picky about what it allows. > Unfortunately that prevents me from using NTFS permissions to control > who may access the repository. If it's not impersonating it's probably a result of changing to a nonstandard configuration - get it working first, then start changing things one at a time. Tony
