Help With CVS - Not enough space

Hi,

I am having a strange issue with CVS. The output shows that there is not enough space for the .cvspass.

the .cvspass is in the users home dir, which has 4GB available.

Error Message:

Code:
cvs status: cannot read /home/<user>/.cvspass: Not enough space
cvs status: authorization failed: server <host> rejected access to <repo> for user <user>
cvs status: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password

I am able to do a login without any errors ( this part was problematic in the begining).

If I do a checkout of the CVSROOT using the local repo, this is the error I see:

Code:
cvs checkout: cannot read file `/CVSROOT/modules' in mydbm_load_file: Not enough space

This directory has 2G available.

Does anyone have any idea's of where I can start to look?

This is for AIX server 7.1

Ignore the first message and pay attention to the 2nd diagnostic:
Code:
cvs status: authorization failed: server <host> rejected access to <repo> for user <user>
cvs status: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a real password

Thanks. I did use the login command and it is successful but this message keeps coming up regardless

Then why does the authorization denied message come up?

For the space issue, if that's a local and not a remote problem, try df -i. You might be out of inodes. Or the 4GB might be space reserved for root.

I don't think its out of inodes. I've tried setting it up on another FS with the same issue:
Code:
Filesystem    512-blocks      Free %Used    Iused %Iused Mounted on
/dev/apt002lv    4194304   2703472   36%    10816     4% /tmp/cvsroot

Are you sure it's running out of space on your system and not the system you're connecting to?

I've checked both... no issues on space... even if I run as root I have the same issue... but if I do a server version of this cvs and a old client version of cvs it works... I'm very confused lol
