For what ever reason your userid/groupid does not have permission to read/write in the nmstools/j2sdk/linux/1.5.0_07/demo/jvmti/hprof/src/CVS directory, you will have to figure that out possibly with the help of your administrator.

We do have a smbmount on windows from the linux machine.

This implys that you are using a Network File System (SMB in this case), and tricking CVS into thinking the repository is local to a machine. You should search the mailing list and make note of the number of the messages indicating that it (corruptions) had something to do with a Network File System[1]. Summary: it is a _very bad_ idea to use NFS or SMB as the connection method for CVS.

It might help us to understand your problem if you also included clearly which OS is your server. If windows is your server then you need to ask on the CVSNT list[2] about how to do remote connections, i.e., :ext:, :ssh: or :gsapi:. If your server is Unix (Linux) then be clear about it when you ask back here, but I can tell you now that your best bet, from windows clients, is to use either :ext: (CVS_RSH=ssh) or :pserver:.

In future messages please be clear to us about:
1) the OS that the cvs server is running on.
2) the CVS version running on the server. (output of cvs --version)
3) the connection protocol, i.e., none :local: :pserver: :ext: ... .
4) the OS that the CVS client is running on.
5) the version of the CVS client. (output of cvs --version)
6) the exact command you ran on the client (assumes you used a command line client)
7) the exact error message.

Does someone knows what could the issue and how to  solve it or if any
thanks in advance
