In Topic: SSL setup problem, can't connect from client.

03 September 2019 - 07:23 PM

How did you start the p4d server instance (which flags)? Can you grep the output of 'ps' to confirm the server is running with ssl for the port? If you do remove the ssl prefix (e.g. 'p4 -p info') does the command work?

I am trying to understand what is the current changelist used in my workarea (<wa>).

What do you mean by "the current changelist used in my workarea"?

Those commands are just showing you the latest checked in CL from either your workarea or from all users, so depending on the checkin velocity and frequency you're synching they may not match what your client has.

AFAIK there isn't a definitive way to know what CL your client is synched to short of checking each file, because each file can be individually synched to different CLs. You can guesstimate for the client as a whole, but just be aware it may not be accurate.

In Topic: Could not connect to Swarm. 'Connection refused'

Did you set the P4.Swarm.URL property on the server to point to your Swarm instance? If you didn't or aren't sure, check out the help file at http://your_url/docs...tegration.html.

In Topic: Latest Version Fails to Start

Have you checked the Perforce server log file? That may provide better info than what the OS is logging..

If the previous version worked and all you did was update the executables maybe your license has expired?

One argument against multiple service accounts might be that you'd have to pay for them all or convince Perforce that you need them and shouldn't have to incur an extra cost for following their recommendations.
Service users are free and are limited in what they can do (unlike background accounts). To even see them and operator accounts you need to run 'p4 users -a'.

Miles, https://www.perforce...vice_users.html has more info about service users. It sounds like the biggest pro is when reviewing logs, so if you've got a process that works for you now with a single user there shouldn't be a need to change. Given Matt's experience, having a single account handling it all seems to be fine.
