for some reason the volumes of our perforce server got dismounted tonight, which I guess was the reason for the perforce server to crash. After re-mounting everything, I started the perforce server again and apparently it just created a new, empty server. To restore our current work, I then used our journal file with
p4d -r $P4ROOT -jr journal_file
After that I was able to start the server, connect with P4V and see the depot and pending changelists and everything, but I still can't get latest revisions or see the actual changes in the history. When I try, I get the error message:
open for read: X,v: No such file or directory
And when I run verify or check P4ROOT/depot/..., most of the files are missing (but not all, at least I see some ,d files).
Is there any way to restore those archive files or something I can do to get the history or at least be able to get revisions? The depot files themselves are still all there.
