Arthur, Thank you for your reply. The comment is one we created. I expect to see that when a user does not have the appropriate permissions to commit or add to a particular module; I don't expect to see it when a user does have permission and I don't expect to see it from every user simultaneously. I have verified the permissions at all levels on select modules. We made no changes to our CVS install nor to our Linux server. fileattr.xml has not changed. Users seem to be validating on the server, meaning, they have valid entries in /etc/passwd. They appear to be authenticating through AD successfully. It seems to be failing when the user permissions are verified in the group file because it throws that default message even though they have explicit access . If nothing appears to have changed, then what changed? Why would a user be able to authenticate and validate one day but not the next? Paul D.

You require heightened access to perform this action. If that is what you tell CVSNT to tell the user then CVSNT will tell the user that ;) Someone has set an ACL and set "Prohibited from access by your personal..." as the message when the ACL is triggered, to view the ACL use a command like this: cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites/AEP.COG.FUEL.FELPM/database/Anonymous The ACL could be on any directory and you will need to 'rlsacl' each directory to find the one with the ACL, ie: cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites/AEP.COG.FUEL.FELPM/database/Anonymous cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites/AEP.COG.FUEL.FELPM/database cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites/AEP.COG.FUEL.FELPM cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl .
