Hello Experts,

I was planning to use mysql for the auditing purposes. I followed the steps
clearly and enabled the auditing usig the CVSNT control panel.The connection
to mysql database was successful .

Then i did the following test

I came nback to my client machine and did a cd to my sand box.


set CVSROOT=:pserver:user at hostname:<Repository Path>

I got the following error

Audit trigger initialiasation failed: Failed to connect to database
cvs server: Pre-command check failed.

I am now cluleless as far as what next I need to do.

If some one out there who has successfully configured this can share his
experience?. I can connect to the remote sqlserver from my machine through
commandline using mysql command like

mysql -u -h -p options.

Any help will be much appreciated.
