What about the parent directories above cvsroot/CVSROOT ?
you don't show the ls listing for those as Larry mentioned.  
If they likewise are owned by cvs:techops and aren't 777, you still
won't be able to write your history file into CVSROOT as user

Also, I have found that creating a cvs group and setting the
setgid bit on the root of the repository is very important - it
ensures that files are always created accessible to any developer in the
cvs group.  Having your tree owned by cvs:techops and users that aren't
in the same group seems problematic.

I think permissions looks ok to me.  I don't know what else I am missing

CVS server side:

# pwd                                   
/f1s7_16267/tools/Techs-Ops/cvsroot             ---- Repository root

# ls -l                                                         
total 40

# more passwd




# grep idw /etc/passwd                    

# grep idwgroup /etc/group                

Client side:   

$ id

uid=203(testuser) gid=1(staff)

$ echo $HOME


$ ls -l

total 8

drwxrwxrwx   2 testuser staff        512 Feb 19 18:22 idw               
$ cvs -d
co Idw

Cannot access /f1s7_16267/tools/Techs-Ops/cvsroot/CVSROOT

Permission denied

$ cvs -d
co -d idw Idw/data

Cannot access /f1s7_16267/tools/Techs-Ops/cvsroot/CVSROOT

Permission denied


Any idea what's wrong with above setup.

The system user you're running as doesn't have read permission in that
directory or one of its parent directories.
