Thank you for the reply.
I will upgrade the server to 1.11;I am waiting for the
backup to be taken before I remove the older version
and install the new one.
But I still don't understand why suddenly after the
groups have been changed,cvs is giving the error.
Specifically the following occurs.
C:\cvs>cvs -d /cvsadmin/mbtvrep co Mbtv/src/sdm
cvs [checkout aborted]: /cvsadmin/mbtvrep/CVSROOT: No
such file or directory
C:\cvs>cvs co Mbtv/src
Permission denied

These 2 different error messages have me baffled since
they show totally unrelated errors.
Can you let me know if in configuring the cvs client
for NT for a unix server, the unix groups which can
access cvs repository are specified anywhere?

Thanks for the help,
Paddy Thomas
