If your CVS/Root files mention user1, then you will need to modify your
CVS/Root files using something like the '' script which
comes with your CVS source distribution.

If there are any files being watched and you have done a 'cvs edit' then
you will likely need to revert those locks as user1 before proceeduing
to adding advisory locks as user2.

You may use a command-line 'cvs -d $CVSROOT' to over-ride the CVS/Root
entries, or you may choose to use the contrib/ which comes
with the CVS source distribution to change the CVS/Root as appropriate
for user2.

You may need to change the underlying file permissions and ownerships to
allow the approprate user2 to have full access to the repository.
