Subject RE: Empty password
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2003 18:05:06 GMT
Hmm, investigating further I see that every cvs_*.html seems to show the
same, (1) the repository name as the password and (2) wincvs 1.3 saying
"empty password" ... however some servers let this slide, and some do not.


	cvs -z3 -d update -P -d -A

	cvs update: Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password

	cvs server: Updating ant
	cvs server: Updating ant/docs

any insights/pointers on my two issues (1) setting the right password (2)
passing it to wincvs?

Thanks in advance.

Subject: Empty password

I know this worked once, and my repository config file has my real password.
Somehow though -- although
the other values are being taken from my repository config, the password is
being reported as blank, and
so the repository name is being used as a password. Could something I
checked out interfere? Could something
I set in one of the other config files interfere? Any pointers appreciated.

Attempting to run:

	C:\Gump\workspace>update trysybase
	cvs -z3 -d checkout -P
(repository name)

	cvs checkout: Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password

	cvs [checkout aborted]: authorization failed: server
	access to /xxxx/cvsroot for user xxx



<repository name="trysybase" type="cvs">

    <password>REAL PASSWORD HERE</password>
