Hi Arthur, 

thanx for the good points and sorry for the lame description:

Here is more info to the problem with modules2.
1.  So the error is with modules2:

With the command:
cvs -ttt co -P CVS_TEST_DB 2> log.err > log.all

The error is following (no any other special error in Trace, tried to post the log file but it was too big, so just posting a part around the error):
cvs server: cannot open directory /PCSW_REST/CVS_TEST_DB/SourceCode/ASICAPI_LIB: No such file or directory
cvs server: skipping directory CVS_TEST_DB/SourceCode/ASICAPI_LIB

as soon as I remove the dependency it works:


"SourceCode/ASICAPI_LIB" = "CVS_ASICAPI_DB/SourceCode/Application"

I am using TortoiseCVS latest 1.10.7, build 2382.  I tried to install latest beta server (tested with tortoise, i.e. with old cvsnt-client) but still this problem occures. 

Log file is attached.

any idea what is going wrong?

Any error in particular, or just an error?

Obviously exact error message and the exact command that caused them are essential in diagnosing problems.

I can't think of any reason off the top of my head why that wouldn't work - but why not simplify it:

Exact command - exact error?  Does rtag work?  If you enable tracing on the server then trace it what are the last few lines of the trace?

Merge the two repositories and use ACLs the refine access.

Any fixes would be made to 2.5.04 - please retest using the latest RC as both server and client (copy your repository to a test machine if you are not ready to make the upgrade permanent):

We've always found that modules/modules2 are not as flexible as we'd like them, hence why EVSCM (previously CVSNT 3.1) has replaced them with "links".
