Subject unable to login to svn repo
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2012 20:45:35 GMT

I would really appreciate if someone can help with this simple creation of repository and
accessing it. I am unable to login to SVN repository and keep getting "Authorization Failed"
error message.  Thank you.
C:\Program Files\CollabNet\Subversion Server>svn co svn://
Authentication realm: <svn://> repo3_realm
Password for 'rkapur':
Authentication realm: <svn://> repo3_realm
Username: harry
Password for 'harry': ************
svn: E170001: Authorization failed

All I did was very simple steps as follows:

1)      svnadmin create /u01/app/repo3

2)      The content of file svnserve.conf are:

anon-access = none

auth-access = write

password-db = passwd

authz-db = authz

realm = My First Repository


3)      Contents of authz are:
harry_and_sally = harry,sally
# [/foo/bar]
# harry = rw
# &joe = r
# * =
@harry_and_sally = rw
# * = r

4)      Contents of passwd file are:
harry = harryssecret
sally = sallyssecret
