Question/Problem setting up multiple projects with separate changelists.

04 February 2019 - 11:37 PM

Good morning/afternoon/evening!

My name is Will, and thank you in advance for any and all assistance. ^_^
Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, I'll get straight to the point:

I'm trying to set up multiple game design projects, either using separate servers or depots most likely, and I need them to have separate change lists. So far, attempts have failed.

Until now I've been using a single server on my PC to host files among a small team (2 people) and using different workspace configurations for separate projects. Functional, but all projects share a single change list.

I've attempted to set up separate depots within a single server, but ran into issues trying to get it to work properly and (as far as I'm aware) the changelist is Server relative, not depot relative. If that is incorrect, please let me know and I'll revisit that option.

The problem I'm encountering now is that, after going through all the steps of creating the second server service in the command line, setting its variables, and verifying that the service exists, I cannot seem to start it. Using the "svcinst start -n Perforce2" command at the end of the steps listed here, I get an error stating that the file cannot be found. Yet, my task manager's services tab shows Perforce2 there, and it cannot be started manually either. Checking the files in the root directory for the server, everything is there that should be, so I'm at a bit of a loss.

Best regards,
