We've had performance issues syncing that required restarting clients and also had processes back up because someone created a workspace.

Here's how to upgrade the Helix server assuming you are on Windows past 2013.3:
1. Take a checkpoint of your system during off-hours
From a "Run as administrator" command prompt, run
cd <Perforce Server root seen in P4V, Help, System Info>
p4d.exe -r . -J <pathto>\journal -jc
or alternatively run
p4 admin checkpoint
2. Gather sanity check information
Note the last changelist numbers and the date and time.
Also run P4V, Help, System Info and look at your current server version.
3. During downtime, stop the Perforce service
Go to Administrative Tools, Services, Perforce
4. Replace your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe with a new p4d.exe and new p4s.exe
Rename your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe
Download the new p4d.exe
Make a copy of p4d.exe and name it p4s.exe.
Replace your current p4d.exe and p4s.exe.
You can choose the version you would like to upgrade to. For example, you can download Perforce 2019.1 at
5. Run the upgrade
p4d.exe -r . -xu
6. Start Perforce
7. Run sanity checks.
Look at View, Submitted Changelists. Note the last changelist numbers and the date and time.
Also run P4V, Help, System Info and look at the new "Server version"
The depot files (versioned files) will not change. Because the IP address has not changed, the license will still work.
