|Subject:||CVS File Locking Question|
|Date:||Wed, 18 Dec 2002 11:41:16 -0500|
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!
