Re: cvs import problem

I found the solution.
The user is not considered a part of a new group until he logs out
and logs in again, which I didn't do. I just added the user to the
cvs group in the local machine and tried to import projects. I was
not able to import. Whereas if I tried it from remote machines, I
succeeded because, I was logging in each time I tried to import.

Thanks for pointing out the 'id' command.

I'm seem to have tracked down the problem.
But I don't understand why this is happening
and what is the solution.

This is the output for id command when I'm
logged in locally to machine_A. The user is
address@hidden cheetanc]$ id
uid=500(cheetanc) gid=500(cheetanc) groups=500(cheetanc)

This is the output for id command when I
ssh from machine_B to machine_A.
address@hidden cheetanc]$ id
uid=500(cheetanc) gid=500(cheetanc) groups=500(cheetanc),504(cvs)

You can see that the user cheetanc is part
of the group cvs in the second case when
not in the first case, (i.e) when logged in
locally. Here are the corresponding entries
in /etc/group.
address@hidden cheetanc]$ cat /etc/group | grep cheetanc

Quite weird. What is happening?

Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That makes it sound like the user is a member of the cvs group when
logged in with ssh but not when logged in locally.  You might want to
compare the results of running the ``id'' command both locally and via
