Thought to post this since CVSNT 2.5.04 slowness on Windows Server 2008 has been discussed on a few threads, but in our case name or reverse name resolution works fine and there's no slowness because of DNS: We installed CVSNT 2.5.04.3236 on 32bit Win Server 2008 + moved our previous repository there; CVSNT performance was very slow with long initial wait times when checking out source code, similar to other earlier reports on this forum. We then followed the advice on other threads to try and diagnose the issue: a) logged on to Win command prompt on the CVSNT server box as Administrator and did a cvsservice -test b) logged on to Win command prompt on the CVSNT server box as Administrator and did a cvslock -test c) logged on to Tortoise CVS client and checked out files to see what's going on -> surprisingly, performance was instantaneous! We then closed the two Win command prompts and re-started again CVSNT services using the CVSNT server control plug-in on Windows control panel, plus did this again a second time directly on Windows services. Everything was again back to very slow CVSNT behavior. We then changed the 'Log On As' account for the CVSNT services (in Windows services) from 'Local system' (SYSTEM) to 'Administrator' and restarted the CDVSNT services - voila! Performance was again instantaneous/very quick! Would anyone have any idea why would changing the account from SYSTEM to Administrator make such a dramatic difference? Could the SYSTEM account on Win Svr 2008 be missing required privileges use by CVSNT that Administrator might have? rgrds Mika
