Needless to say this doesn't work when we try to access the fresh

        address@hidden lth]$ cvs login

        CVS password:
        /data/cvsrep: no such repository

That message indicates that the repository you specified (/data/cvsrep)
does not exactly match any of the --allow-root= options specified for
the server.  You probably have a typo in your xinetd config file.

We checked this several times. Even went as far as trying to create a new repository called "/r" just to make sure we did not spell anything wrong on either side. But there was no way of *not* using the original repository path /data/cvsroot. <sigh>

Unfortunately we cannot spend more time looking into this so the computer in question has been completely reinstalled with a new OS and now we have a repository called /data/cvsrep with no problems.

Also we did not find a solution to multi-user access control to different modules so we are skipping that. The NFS mount point will only be used by a cron command to do the nightly backup of the repository.

Thank you all for the help.

best regards,
