Hi all,

I am a newbie and I need to change the location of the P4JOURNAL file so I tried running this command $ p4 configure set P4JOURNAL=/mylocation/p4journal but I get the following error Configuration variable 'P4JOURNAL' may not be changed.

There are a few things that you can't set in the config db because the server needs to read them before it knows where the config db is, and P4JOURNAL is one of those things.

Set P4JOURNAL either in the environment (as P4JOURNAL) or on the command line (as the "-J" argument to p4d).
