Hi, I am very new to evs. However, I do use cvsnt for some time. Having the cvs repository with our project (related to cvsnt 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382), I would like to transfer it from one machine to the new machine with evs 2.6.02.2581. The old machine uses Windows XP, the new machine uses Windows Vista OS. How can I do it? (I tried to find some information about migration, but I was not successful. Sorry if I am blind to find the obvious.) The cvsnt is used only on the local computer but running CVSNT Dispatch and Locking services and repository accesed via cvs client using :sspi:localhost:/cvsrootXXX. The evs on the new machine is expected to be used the same way or similarly. So I did zip the original repository, and unzipped it on the new machine. However, when I add the repository through EVS Control Panel, it does not complain, but it also does not create the /cvsrootXXX/repository.db which is probably required (my guess) by evs. When I create the repository first and then unzip the content, the repository.db exists but it does not contain the information about the project (which is not surprising). Is there any evs command for building repository.db for the existing (older) repository structure? Thanks for your time and experience, Petr
