Cognos FM: CVS problems

If you’re using CVS for your Cognos Framework manager models (and I recommend to do that, it’s essential as multi-developer and backup_to_point tool), you can encounter the problem I’ve met today.

Something went wrong during checkout on one machine and model became marked as “checked out” prohibiting further changes. With no way to toggle undo check out from FM (don’t know why).

So here are the steps allowing you to unlock model:

mkdir c:\temp\cvsroot
cd c:\temp\cvsroot
cvs checkout cvsroot
cvs admin -u

those lines checkout your project to temporary directory and then drop all locks on cvs project.

that’s all ), you can checkout models again.
