Abstract: 'User name does not exist' error occurs after changing the user's password on the CVS server.

Question:

�After changing passwords on the CVS server, when attempting to "Pull project from CVS', the user immediately gets an error, 'User name does not exist' and does not ask user for the password. How is this issue resolved?

Answer:

Locate and remove the .cvspass file in the user home directory on the machine and retest the behavior. The user should then get the password dialog again to reset the user's CVS password cache.
