CVS File Locking Question

I have a file locking problem.  Hopefully someone can help me shed some light on it for me.


I created two user groups: cvsusers and cvsadmin

I made sure that the entire repository is accessible rwx to cvsusers.

The cvsadmin group has no permissions to anything.


When I check out a module that I own and try to lock a file therein, I receive this message:

(I’m using the WinCVS client interface)


cvs admin -l testfile1 (in directory C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\TASC\Sandbox\lawriem)

cvs [server aborted]: usage is restricted to members of the group cvsadmin


Obviously CVS doesn’t believe that neither I (lawriem) nor cvsusers (the group to which I belong) has the authority to lock the files.  When I add myself to the cvsadmin group, I’m able to lock the files flawlessly.


Now, I would rather avoid adding everyone to the cvsadmin group (though I suppose I could!) and would like to understand what I did during CVS configuration and fix the actual problem.


Thanks for any insight!
