We have CVS in WINDOWS system. We are using CVS as source control
system. Now we are planning to lock CVS head from all developers after
giving one branch to all.


But I am getting error when I am giving commands:-


E:\ATG\ATG2007.1>cvs admin -lbuild_06082008 wmt

cvs [server aborted]: usage is restricted to repository administrators



E:\ATG\ATG2007.1>cvs chacl -R -r build_06082008 -m "0.2 has been locked"
-a read,nowrite,notag,nocontrol,nocreate wmt

cvs server: User 'BineeshU' cannot modify permissions for /wmi-mtep-p1


But my id has created with cvsadmin user as below


cvs passwd -r cvsadmin -a BineeshU


Still I am getting permission issue. 


Could somebody help me how I can get permission for doing either of the
above command ?  It is very urgent and critical


Please help me
