> Login to server via Putty (a-okay)
> At server command line:
> cvs -d :pserver:myid at IPaddress:/full_path_to_repository_root login
> Error returned " . . . no such repository"
Note: physical paths mean nothing in CVSNT - they are a security risk:
cvs -d :pserver:myid at IPaddress:/alias_path_as_defined login
When you init'ed the repository you will have defined a physical and a
logical 'alias' - it's the alias you should use:
Please submit the relavent information with support requests:
Without knowing the version of CVSNT on the server and the
/etc/cvsnt/PServer we'd only be speculating. Note: the mailing list
rejects attachments and messages over 8K so only submit the relavent
parts of the config files etc.
Note: the most common cause of this error are:
1) that the repository is not registered in /etc/cvsnt/PServer
2) /etc/cvsnt/PServer is not readable by all users
3) /full_path_to_repository_root should be /alias_path_as_defined
You can also try using SSH:
cvs -d :ssh:myid at IPaddress:/alias_path_as_defined login
