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.


We are looking for making the authentication of CVS through Active 
directory or LDAP.

Current CVS set up

CVS Version - 1.11.21 (client/server)

OS - CVS installed in Sun solaris server.

Authentication - Uses pserver mechanism  for authentication. Passwords are 

currently stored in passwd file.

 I learned from google that CVSNT can support authentication using Active 
directory or LDAP.So need the the following details to investigate this 
option further.

1) Is there a documentation or manual available which explains in detail 
about authentication via Microsoft Active directory/LDAP for CVSNT 

2) We are also looking for a guide that would explain in detail about the 
Migration steps from CVS to CVSNT. We would want to know how 
easy/difficult it is. 

3) Please provide us the changes/modifications needed for the current set 
to authenticate against Active directory/LDAP using CVSNT.

Thanks in Advance,
