Description andrew.simmonds 1999-01-19 05:54:42 UTC
We have a number of linux system and the cvs directories
are mounted from a server running linux.
If a checkin is done on a remote m/c sometimes it dosen't
work. I think it might have something to do with system
time but I'm not sure.

FWIW, Red Hat routinely uses cvs to access remote repositories
using :pserver: or :ext: access without problems.

You should check:
1) both the client and server are running the same version of cvs.
2) the times between the client and server should be kept in sync
3) you should *not* try to access the remote cvs server using NFS.
The linux nfs server has some issues. Use :pserver: or :ext: access
instead -- both of theses types of remote access are faster.
4) I've also seen cvs have some difficulties checking out into
a nfs directory.

Please reopen this bug with more complete information on how to
reproduce your problem if the above suggestions do not help.
