I'm having a BIG problem.

When I try to submit a file, in my case they are new fails, so I'm adding files, the submit proccess never ends, when it reaches 100% the window stays open, it says 100% and never ends, I can cancle the action, and then the submit is not done because the files are not in the depot, so nothing is working.

Some ideas please?

Best regards.

Juan Gea.

This is definitely one to check with your Perforce administrator and/or technical support; it'll take a little investigation to figure out exactly what's going wrong.

If I were the admin the first two things I would look at are:

1) Do I have any triggers running that might be taking forever to run?
2) Are there any error messages in the log?

As the user trying to submit the change, one thing I might try would be to retry the submit from the command line on the off chance it's a client-side problem.

I solved it a few minutes after posting here! I've been since yesterday thinking about this and here is the thing:

My Depot is in a network mapped drive to letter Z:, I've been forced to start the perforce server as an administrator proccess instead of service becasue the network read/write permissions.
At the user login I map the drives and after that I start the server, all seemed fine, but it seemed that the server was unable to finish the writing proccess, and there was no error in the server output, finally I thought that the problem was that the Administrator user was not able to see the maped drives by the actual user, so I duplicated the drive mapping commands and I made them to be executed as administrator, and voila! everything solved :)

There was no error anywere, but from a network administrator point of view it was pretty straight forward, the thing is that I'm not just the network administrator in my company, I'm everything, so some times I'm a bit slow reaching solutions hahaha

Thanks for the fast answer!
