What steps will reproduce the problem?

I have installed ReviewBoard 1.6.1 on both an Ubuntu 10.04 server and a W2K3 R2 server, trying to get ReviewBoard happy with our CVS repository. The behavior I am seeing when trying to configure the repository is the same on both systems.

When I attempt to add the CVS repository, I cannot specify just a simple :pserver path and then supply the Username and Password. Our CVS server is really CVSNT, and it is using Active Directory domain accounts (which happen to be in a different domain than the Windows system) for authentication. For that reason, the username needs to be in the form <domain>\<user>.

The only way I seem to be able to add the CVS repository is if I put
EVERYTHING into the Path field. For example:


What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I get an error when trying to configure the repositoty telling me that the repository cannot be found at the specified path.

What operating system are you using? What browser?

I have tried this on Ubuntu 10.04 and x86 W2K3 R2 ReviewBoard servers, accessing the site with both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Please provide any additional information below.
