Hi Larry,

While running the update command I'm getting this error.  Please advise.

boc01% /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /opt/prodcvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1
cvs update: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or
cvs update: use `cvs add' to create an entry for

That implies that the user you're logging in to the server as doesn't
have write permission in that directory (/opt/prodcvs/eai/APRT).

Note that CVS doesn't use $CVSROOT when running in a working directory,
it uses the value saved in CVS/ROOT instead, so you may not be logging
in as the user you think you are.  To force CVS to use $CVSROOT, use it
as the value of the -d global option:

        cvs -d $CVSROOT update -j 1.2 -j 1.1
