I got it. Previously cvsroot directory of the same repository was checked out(which was hidden) using absolute pathname as cvsroot at the same location (where I was trying to checkout), that's why CVS was not allowing me to login as it was taking CVSROOT as absolute repository pathname. I have tried setting CVSROOT environment variable in small, caps and mixed cases and it works fine. Thanks for your valuable suggestions and time.

Best Regards,

No you're not...

... you're setting cvsroot.  You should be setting CVSROOT.  Does it work if you use the correct case?
