Creating a new repository if one already exist

We have a cvs repository on a linux server. We use WinCVS 1.2 to connect. In
my preferences my cvsroot is as follows:


Our repository name is cvsdata. Now, I created a folder called metadata on
the same level in the directory structure as cvsdata. But because of disc
initialized metadata as follows:

cvs -d /cvsdata/metadata

The CVSROOT directory was created with no problem. The following line was in

cvspserver      stream   tcp    nwait.400    root          /usr/sbin/tcpd
/usr/bin/cvs -b   /usr/bin --allow-root=/cvsdata pserver

I added the following line to make provision for the new repository:

cvspserver      stream  tcp     nowait.400      root    /usr/sbin/tcpd
/usr/bin/cvs -b /usr/bin --allow-root=/cvsdata/metadata

I have a group called users and the metadata directory belongs to this
group. It is the same group as for cvsdata

My question is: what must I do such that I can change my cvsroot on the
client side to address@hidden:/cvsdata/metadata and log in with success.
It is like cvs doesn't recognise the new repository metadata as a place to
log in to. If I log in with address@hidden:/cvsdata as my cvsroot I can check
metadata out like a normal module that is part of the cvsdata repository. I
want to use the same user passwords and usernames as for cvsdata.

I receive the following error when I try to log in:  cvs login:
authorization failed: server phantom rejected access to /cvsdata/metadata
for user admin

Can you please advise?

Thank you so much!!
