[cvsnt] Problem branching, then error on commit in CVSNT

I have gone ahead and renamed my repository directory, and created the
alias, as you recommended. The alias is now /websites.
I can check out the files with no problem.
But when I go to commit them back in, using the same command you did in your
e-mail to me, I get this interesting error:
cvs server: could not find parsed rcsfile stock.aspx
cvs server: could not find parsed rcsfile stock.aspx.vb
cvs commit: saving log message in
cvs [commit aborted]: cvs [server aborted]: Repository directory
does not exist: No such file or directory
[Note: the actual name of the directory was changed to "clientwebsite" for
So clearly, CVS is trying to commit the files back to the repository using
the old connection string, from last week before I renamed it under your and
Bo's guidance. And, of course, it is failing, because that directory no
longer exists under that name. So somehow the change didn't "take", I guess.
This is odd. The Checkout happened just fine, with or without specifying the
CVSROOT, and the CVSROOT environment variable is correct.
I *did* re-start the server after the name change/alias. Is there somewhere
else that the CVSNT server holds on to the repository information, where I
could edit it and correct it?
