Cristian, > cvs -w update -P -d -r bld_1 I'm pretty sure that should be: cvs -w update -A -P -d -r bld_1 But I tested your combination on my mac (10.5) and it seems OK: cvs -w -d :pserver:localhost:/myrepo import -I ! -I CVS -m test -n -- sticky_tag_example cd .. cvs -w -d :pserver:localhost:/myrepo checkout -P -- sticky_tag_example cd sticky_tag_example cvs -w tag -- bld_1 cvs -w update -P -d -r bld_1 acAir:sticky_tag_example abarrett$ cvs ci -m test cvs commit: Examining . cvs commit: Examining first cvs commit: Examining nowarning cvs commit: Examining second cvsnt server: sticky tag `bld_1' for file `GINHEADPRT-AMITAL.XML' is not a branch cvsnt server: sticky tag `bld_1' for file `second/GDWUMAPEVN.XML.FIX' is not a branch cvsnt [server aborted]: correct above errors first! MacAir:sticky_tag_example abarrett$ cvs ver Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3125 (RC 8) (client/server) Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3125 (RC 8) (client/server) If you can reproduce it on 2.5.04 or 2.5.05 then I'll look at it again, but for now it looks like either anti-virus messing up the update to the CVS/Tag file or a very very old bug that's been fixed for years.
