You do know that NFS is usually a bad idea for a repository right?

Typo? Should be:

        cvs -d /data/cvsrep init

Where did you copy it to? /data/cvsrep/CVSROOT/passwd ?

You might consider looking at the output of:

    diff -r /data/cvsrep/CVSROOT /data/cvsroot_old/CVSROOT

to see if anything else is different.

        Good luck,
