I am facing the problem booth on client and server side.
Please look below for the errors I get.
If you are using NIS/LDAP then all the clients have the same user names,
passwords and groups.
But you have not indicated that the systems are using NIS/LDAP or independent
user authentication/authorization configurations.
HERE USERS HAVE NIS AND EACH USER HAS AN INDEPENDANT
USER AUTHENTICATION TO ACCESS THE SYSTEMS IN NETWORK
Thanks, that makes thinking about this stuff easier.
so do I need to make any changes to it so that they
can access the cvsgroup I created with gid 800?
then as sadia on cvs_server:
pwd #assumption it returns /appl/src/cvs/
chown :sadiascvsgroup JavaAppl/projectdir
chmod g+rws JavaAppl/projectdir
#you'll want to tighten up security on the following directory later.
chown :sadiascvsgroup JavaAppl/CVSROOT
chmod g+rws JavaAppl/CVSROOT
address@hidden chmod g+rws JavaAppl/CVSROOT
chmod: changing permissions of `JavaAppl/CVSROOT': Operation not permitted
There are only two reasons I can think of for that to fail.
try (on cvs_server, as sadia)
`ls -ld /appl/src/cvs/JavaAppl \
The reasons are:
1) sadia does not own those directories.
2) those directories are on an nfs server/NAS which is being very pedantic
about WHO can set those things.
Did the `chmod g+rws JavaAppl/projectdir` work or give the same error?
then as sadia on a_workstation:
cvs checkout projectdir
date > projectdir/mydate
cvs add projectdir/mydate
cvs commit -m"a comment" projectdir/mydate
address@hidden ~]$ cvs checkout projectdir
cvs checkout: Updating projectdir
Looks like you have a repository that already contains the mydate file, that
should be a good thing, except I was about to have you create the file.
address@hidden ~]$ cvs add projectdir/mydate
cvs add: in directory .:
cvs [add aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first
on workstation as sadia, please provide:
`ls -ld ~/projectdir/; ls -l ~/projectdir/`
address@hidden ~]$ cvs commit -m "a comment" projectdir/mydate
cvs commit: use `cvs add' to create an entry for projectdir/mydate
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!
Are you sure you are feeding me the errors in the order you got them, I
expected a DIFFERENT error at this point????
something is highly amiss at this point.
You probably have leftovers from several attempts of getting setup at this
point, some of which probably have permission/ownership problems. (probably
something owned by root that should be owned by sadia.)
There are two ways out that I can think of.
1) remove the repository and sandboxes that you have created so far and start
following the email with the description again fresh, if this fails go to
method 2, while indicating this one failed and how.
2) we have to look at the permission/ownership of everything in $CVSROOT and
the sandboxes, and then determine what changes have to be made.
The second method is significantly more pain in my book, but it is you who
gets to pick the method.
BTW anyone who has a better (easier to understand) way to present how to get a
repository setup and requisite system config, PLEASE give me a hand here.
