I made the following changes:
- Run as user = (client user)
- Default domain = (default)
after JAVADOG was unsuccessful
- Repository Location = C:/cvsRepositories/2009
it successfully created the new 2009 directory
- Re-added users with "cvs -d /cvsRepositories/2009 passwd -a cvsadmin"
I still get the same error message:
Could not connect to :pserver.myself at localhost:/2009: I/O exception
occurred: Connection refused: Fatal error, aborting. myself: Switch to
user failed due to configuration error. Contact your System Administrator.
The root cause of the error seems to be "Switch to user failed...".
Does anyone know who/what is trying to switch from what user to what
other user? Who is stopping the switch. This might help me figure it
out on my own.
