You have multiple options.

If you are an all windows shop I would consider the following.

1) use cvsnt.  run the repository on a windows machine.  CVS doesn't take up
too much system resources so you could get by with
using an existing server.

2) The VMWare sounds like a possible solution but I wouldn't do it.  Just
setup a small server with linux (redhat or suse) and install cvs on it.  The
linux solution would be far more secure.

We are currently migrating from cvsnt to a pure cvs / linux solution.  We
were having multiple branch merge issues with using WSAD.

Hope it helps.

Subject: Creating a CVS environment

Hi all,

I work for a small business who want to start employing a version
control system and, as I have used and been impressed by CVS in the
past, I would like to go with a CVS solution.

However, the issue I have is that we have no access to a Unix Server
as we are completely PC based, sharing files on a common group drive,
and it is my understanding that you cannot locate a CVS repository on
a shared windows server. Is that correct ?

In order to get around this, I have been thinking of implementing the
following environment:

RedHat Linux running under VMWare on a Windows XP machine
CVS server running upon the virtual Linux machine
CVS repository residing upon common group drive configured via Linux
Client PC's running WinCVS to access the central repository running on
the Virtual Linux machine

Now, before I commit to this and start buying the items I need to
implement such a system, I would like some feedback from the CVS
community to see if it is truly achievable.

Any response will be greatly appreciated.
