I have a cvs repository set up on a Linux server that uses pam/samba methods to authenticate against a windows domain controller. Clients then use sspi to access the repository by means of domain user names and passwords. This usually works well but today I have hit a problem. I can successfully complete a cvs login but not other commands like update, status or commit. The server shows a PAM message about authentication failing because of using the wrong password when these commands are issued. This surprises me because these commands use exactly the same CSVROOT as the successful login. I had assumed they are using the password that was validated and cached by that login. Is this assumption wrong? Is there somewhere else that it could be getting this incorrect password from? Thanks for any help or advice
