I tried moving several files between two folders. My changelist had the appropriately matching delete and add items for all but one file. When the changelist failed to submit, I saw that for one file, the "delete" item was marked as a part of move command (shown as a red box with a white "x"), but the "add" item was marked as a fresh add (shown as a red "plus").
I reverted everything, but the rogue "delete" item stuck around.
When I try to revert this file in p4v, it tells me that the target file (where this file was supposed to be move to) is not opened on this client.
From the command line, trying to run
p4 revert filenametells me that file "has been moved, not reverted"
I spoke with a coworker who has become the de facto administrator. He was not able to force the revert. He suggested I try an earlier version of p4/p4v to see if there was some incompatibility. I went as far back as 2005.1 to see if running the revert before "move" was a discrete action would help me out. No dice.
What's my next move here? Get the admin to blow away my workspace?
