Hi Krishna,

Sorry, I miss-copied your original update command.  I never use the global -nq options.  Anyhow, this is the command I would use:
cvs up -d
(Or if you really must use the -nq global options: cvs -nq up -d)

Also, you cvs version 1.11.1p1 is ancient.  You should upgrade to the latest 1.11.xx release (1.11.21 I think).  There are lots and lots of bugs that have been fixed since 1p1.

cvs up -nqd
-d gets missing dirs.

For help on all cvs commands, you can use 'cvs -H <command>' (e.g. cvs -H up)

Hi All,
I have checked out source in my work area, Now the problem is after my checkout one of my team member is added the new directory and the files on to the source. When a say " cvs -nq update" or "cvs update" output will be none.
Now i don't want to do a fresh checkout, how to over come this issue. (It happens only if we add new directories)
