cvs admin -l

Hello !

I have a question regarding the 'cvs admin -l' - command.
If I try to lock a certain file and passing the command
a certain Branch-Tag, cvs doesn't lock, and gives the 
following error-message:

RCS file: .../file.C,v
cvs admin: .../file.C,v: branch <Branch_Tag> absent
cvs admin: cannot modify RCS file for `file.C'

The command-line is looking similar to the following:

cvs admin -l<Branch_Tag> file.C

Is this a known problem and is there a solution to it ?

p.s.: I need this for 'Phase red' to block any commits
      during software-release

Thanks a lot !
