RE: Multiple root pserver access strangeness

Figured out the problem.

1) the second root had been copied from a RedHat 5.1 machine whose crypt
function was a little different, so the passwd file was not legit for the
new machine. (i.e. you could type in the right password, just not get the
data back).

2) in the CVSROOT/config, I needed to uncomment the SystemAuth=no so that
only those people with in the passwd file would get access.

Sorry for the noise.

I'm running RedHat 7 Linux with the cvs installed in it (1.10.8).

I have multiple roots supported with pserver access. However, it seems that
the pserver only looks at CVSROOT/passwd file for the first root to
determine access rights for any of the roots it supports.

Is this by design, or have I missed something?
