Re: Changing Server Question

What I would have done is set up a cname record in my DNS configuration
to give a symbolic name (e.g. "cvsroot") to the machine, in addition to
its regular host name.  That way if the server moves around, then a
quick tweak to the DNS server will give all of the users access again
with no changes to their environments.

If you choose to go this route, then the old host's name becomes the
symbolic name of the CVS server.

We are moving our CVS repository to a different machine soon.  We currently use 
the actual machine name that holds our repository in the CVSROOT so any 
projects that are checked-out have this machine name in the CVS\root file.  

We have more than 100 projects using CVS.  Do we have to have everyone commit 
all changes before we move the repository to the new machine and have them do a 
fresh checkout or can we just write a script to update all for the CVS\root 
files to use the new alias?  Or better yet, is there something in CVS or WinCVS 
to do this?
