requires that you build your own CVSNT - not what the other 1,399,999 people did
solution also requires that different ports be used which many clients do not
support (eg: Eclipse) and finally the cvslockd is not specifically tested for
this and such use would be unsupported.
Actually it is that simple! We currently
do that to test multiple CVSNT
versions on the same machine with WANdisco
Replicator. Basically when
you build the CVSNT sources:
run configure --prefix=/location/for/2_0_58 and
For cvsnt 2.5.01
run configure --prefix=/location/for/2_5_1
cvsnt binary will pick up Pserver file from
and not /etc. This allows two
config files to exists simultaneously. Presumed this was
I was wondering if it was possible to run two cvs repositories on one
Yes just use different ports for lockdaemon and CVSNT server.
No this will NOT work because the two servers will share the same
/etc/cvsnt/Pserver file (or the same registry if you are running on
windows) and you will therefore be able to access the same repositories
with both servers. Also installing 2.0.58 and 2.5.01 on one machine
(using standard builds) wont work due to the locations of the protocol
libraries. If the problem was that simple to solve it wouldn't be a
"feature we are planning for a future release".
Ask the CVSNT list - not the Non-GNU list.
