I've been looking around but seems that there's no clear solution till date. Really appreciate if I could obtained some help.
This problem only happens on a Windows 2003 Server. I tried on my local machine (Windows XP SP2) and everything works fine.
1. Create a local administrator system account (cvsuser) on my server
2. install CVSNT 2.5.03.2382
3. restart server after installation and set up repository
4. execute the command
a. set cvsroot=:pserver:localhost:/TestCVS
b. cvs login
c. enter password for Logging in to :pserver:cvsuser at localhost:2401:/TestCVS (log in was successful)
d .cvs passwd -r cvsuser -a testuser
e. enter the password for testuser.
f. set cvsroot=:pserver:testuser at localhost:/TestCVS
g. cvs login
h. Enter password for testuser.
i. Gets the following Error
Fatal error, aborting.cvs [login aborted]: cvsuser: Switch to user failed due to configuration error. Contact your System Administrator.
My CVSNT control panel config:
Run as User : client user
Default Domain: <machine name>
The CVSNT services are running as "Local System" when displayed under the services.
Suspicious message? There’s an alert for that.
