I had the config file already there, but the entries are uncommented. Regarding
the comments storing is enabled by default but now explicitly enabled:


store-passwords = yes
store-auth-creds = yes

Server file.


test.local = fsvs.agile-admin.net
ssl-client-cert-file = /etc/ssl/default/newcert.p12
ssl-client-cert-password = test123
ssl-authority-files = /etc/ssl/default/cacert.pem
store-passwords = yes
store-plaintext-passwords = no
store-ssl-client-cert-pp = no
store-ssl-client-cer​t-pp-plaintext = no

Good tip!
The bottom line (4245) shows where fsvs wants to get information from. Log
gzipped and attached for convinience.

> 10:56:23.046460 lstat("/etc/fsvs/aut​h/auth/svn.ssl.serve​r/06efd6678d90237507​2f17361922b4b2", 0x7fffa792b3d0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
