The repository value set for CVS is Invalid

Abhishek Srivastava
my code resides in a CVS repository. I can checkout the contents of the CVS repository using the Tortoise CVS client using the following CVS ROOT:

:pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1

I have created an entry in the codestiker.conf for the CVS repository as

@valid_repositories =
(
':pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1'
);

When I try to create a topic, I enter values for
title, description, module, email, reviewers, cc.

But I get the error

No filename or module/tags were entered.
The repository value set for ":pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1" is invalid.
Please correct this value in your codestriker.conf file, and try again.

I have specified correct module name as defined in the CVS. my CVS ROOT string is also correct because I have copy pasted this from the Tortise CVS client. So why am I getting this error?

The syntax you use is a bit different.. check the examples in the
codestriker.conf file.

You probably want:

:pserver:myusername:12345678:@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1

Cheers,
David

Re: The repository value set for CVS is Invalid

Hello David,

I am really stuck.

If I use the format given by you, when I click on create topic I get the error

PAM Authenticate error: Authentication Failure
cvs [rdiff aborted]: authorization failed: server yyy.zzz@xyz.com reject access to /cvsroot/myrproject for user abc.

If I copy paste this string into my CVS Client, I get the same error.

However I am able to connect to my CVS Server using the string which I had posted in my earlier mail with no authentication errors (infact my admin added me to the admin list just to resolve this issue).

But then codestriker doesn't like the string which I had put before.

Kindly help!

This to me looks like you have the wrong password.

When I checked my extra email, I think I had an extra colon in there
by mistake (after the password).  Can you try this string?

:pserver:myusername:[hidden email]:/cvsroot/project1

Cheers,
David
