"No Such Repository" Problem in CVS

Hi ,
Recently i was told by my Senior guys to create a new cvs repository in our cvs server - Already 3 cvs respositories are running there. I was able to add & initialize the 4th CVS repository (/Algo/pruthvi_algo_Debug).
But if i try to access from any other remote machine(i used lincvs) it gives error

/Algo/pruthvi_algo_Debug: no such repository

I came across a link which points to the same error .. but no proper answer.

1. OS : RHEL4.2 ES
2. CVS Version : 1.11.17
3. /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver
service cvspserver
disable = no
id = cvspserver
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
wait = no
server = /usr/bin/cvs
Port = 2401
passenv = PATH
server_args = -f --allow-root=/home/cvshome --allow-root=/ic/pruthvi_cvs --allow-root=/Algo/pruthvi_algo --allow-root=/Algo/pruthvi_algo_Debug pserver

Please help me on this...Is this a problem with multiple repository creation using pserver option or any other thing?

Hi -

1. CVS is extremely flexible and extremely scalable.

There is no inherent limit on the #/CVS repositories you can have on a server ... but, by the same token, there is seldom any good reason to have more than one repository.

"Multiple repositories" is generally *not* a wise choice.

2. This link describes your scenario:

3. Although there's no problem with multiple repositories; you *can* run into a limit on the size/# of your inetd arguments:

'Hope that helps .. PSM
