I am facing a problem.
Actually, right now our DNS is down so for running
client server cvs,I am adding IP address of the
clients as entries in the /etc/hosts file of the
machine where cvs server is running.But we all have
previously checked out working directories;the old
CVSROOT is no longer valid;instead of the server name
we are giving server ip address and updated using cvs -d $CVSROOT update
Now in all CVS/Root directories, the new root has
replaced the old one so we no longer have to use -d
each time.But in one machine, this is not
happening.CVS is always reading old CVSROOT and is
giving error 'there is no machine by that name'
I changed  CVSROOT in the autoexec file, rebooted that
machine and did update with -d but in CVS/Root file,
the old CVSROOT remains.How do I change this?The
client is win 98 machine and cvs client is command prompt.

Simply remove all the CVS/Root files in that sandbox and do a `checkout -d` from the top of the tree. This will create new CVS/Root files with the new root.
