Hello Forummembers,

i try to set up my first Perforce server on my local PC. I'm working on a Ubuntu Vivid machine, and installed the server packages from the Perforce APT-Servers.

After installing i used

sudo /opt/perforce/sbin/configure-perforce-server.sh main -p 1666 -r /usr/local/p4root -u perforceadmin -P xxxxxxxx --unicode

to configure the server.

Then i'm getting:

Please provide the following details about your desired Perforce environment:
Perforce Server root (P4ROOT) [/usr/local/p4root]:
Perforce Server unicode-mode [true]:
Perforce Server case-sensitivity [0]:
Perforce Server address (P4PORT) [1666]:
Perforce super-user login [perforceadmin]:
Perforce super-user password:
Re-enter password.
Perforce super-user password:
SSL certificates found in ssl
Server switched to Unicode mode.
Started main p4d.
p4dctl error:
main p4d: '/opt/perforce/sbin/p4d' exited with status 255.
Started 1 servers.
p4dctl error:
Not all servers started successfully.

But sadly it doesn't says what happend. I can see that it installed a main.conf in /etc/perforce/p4dctl.conf.d.

But what can be wrong?

Hi Sascha,

Thank you for the command and output examples. Did you check the log to see if there were any errors or messages there? Are you using the perforce-helix-ova-builder for your installation?

We do not know for sure yet what the issue is but I have seen this type of error message when the main p4d process was still running when p4dctl tried to start it.

Do you have a license file, and if so is it tied to port 1666?
