Hi all,
I am facing some problem while importing dir to cvs server.  It is giving error as "no such user"

Here is what I did:
cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init
/usr/sbin/useradd cvs
cd /usr/local/cvsroot
chown -R cvs.cvs .
chmod ug+rwx . CVSROOT

vi /etc/xinetd.d/cvs and added these lines:
service cvs

        socket_type = stream
        protocol = tcp
        server = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver
        wait = no

Restart xinetd:
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

vi /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/passwd
Added a line with my user name and password:

Where the password is copied from /etc/shadow

Also, I added myself to the cvs group

On another machine i have done following
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot login
It asked for me password and reported no errors, so I assume the login
was OK.

I then went to import a new project by typing:
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot import -m "Test" test JAMM start

this command is giving me error:

fatal error
no such user:
cvs import: authorization failed: server nameofserver rejected access to

Any ideas??
