Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-481) Continuum ignores .cvspass
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2005 16:08:06 GMT
    [ ] 

Matthew Beermann commented on CONTINUUM-481:


Q: I'm running on Windows, and Continuum can't log in to my CVS repository! What's going on?

A: You're probably running the CVSNT client, or another application based on it, like TortoiseCVS.
CVSNT stores passwords in the registry, rather than the ~/.cvspass file. You'll need to issue
the following command manually (but only once), with the appropriate information filled in:

cvs -d :pserver:account@cvsserver:2401:/rootfolder login

Also, note that the login will only be saved for the particular user who typed it. If you're
running Continuum as a service, double-check the user it is running as, and make sure that
you run cvs login as that user.

> Continuum seems to ignore the .cvspass file while building my projects, resulting in
the error: "Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password". Note that our CVS
repository does not have anonymous access, nor does it use the "anonymous" account.

This behavior seems completely wrong to me. Note that running a "cvs checkout" command from
the command line works just fine.
