CVS locks are created in the directory as specified in the CVS configuration variable LockDir CVSROOT/config file. It could be aomething like LockDir=/temp/Locks/ ... on the server side. You may have to log into the server and then manually delete these locks.

Actually I can't find any file #cvs.* in the directory. I'm told that the lock happened as there was an interruption during some cvs operation.

I got a suggestion to use Smart CVS and unlock them but I use Unix server amd not SmartCVS. Any idea about this please?

Go in and delete the #cvs.* files and you will clear the lock.
