RE: Unknown Host error

Since you are not specifying the CVSROOT with the -d option the value for
CVSROOT might be different in the script then at the command line.  The
script might be setting the CVSROOT environment variable or the CVS_RSH
environment variable, for example.  You must have CVSROOT set on your system
or you would need to use the -d option on the command line.  Check the
script to see if it is setting those variables.  If the script is running as
a different user I guess it's also possible it might be using a different
environment, too, but given Windows I doubt that is the case.

I imagine this question has an obvious answer, but it is escaping me...

I am trying to run a vss to cvs script ( and I am getting the
following error:

c: Unknown Host
rsh: can't establish connection
cvs [import aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if
++++ cvs -f import -m "Directory structure from VSS" "RK" from VSS
transfer ++++

However, if I enter that line of the script manually at the command line
(cvs -f import -m "Directory structure from VSS" "RK" fromVSS transfer), it
works fine.

I have both the cvs and vss repos on an XP workstation and have installed
activeperl as described in the install doc.

Thanks for any help.
