In Topic: P4 opened -x does not show exclusive files opened for add

21 February 2019 - 04:23 PM

Getting back to this case because I encountered it again and completely forgot about this post. It would be nice if the "p4 help opened" usage mentioned that -x does NOT include exclusive files marked for *add*.

A colleague of mine found the following suitable workaround for command line usage:
p4 opened -a //mydepot/mybranch/... | findstr exclusive

That was exactly it. The account i was using only had 'read' access instead of open.
I was thinking the same thing about the message being returned by the reconcile operation, it would have been nice if the message was clearer.
(lol even a message calling me an 'idiot' for not checking permissions would have been tolerable ^_^ )

Oh BTW I should point out that when i add the preview option '-n' in the command line, it outputs the message that the file is opened for edit. Leading us to believe that the command would have worked without the preview option.

I probably would have seen it if I continued with the reconcile operation in P4V instead of the stopping at the preview window :angry:

Hi Sam,

I found the issue, it was just a silly permission problem.
The user account that i was using only had read access to the depot.
I can't believe i didn't figure it out sooner.

Sorry for the inconveniences,

BTW I was running some more tests and i seem to only have the issue with this particular depot.
I ran reconcile operations on other depots (streamed, non-stream) and the reconcile operation works fine through P4V and the command line.

The depot in question appears to have been created correctly:

# A Perforce Depot Specification.
#  Depot:	   The name of the depot.
#  Owner:	   The user who created this depot.
#  Date:		The date this specification was last modified.
#  Description: A short description of the depot (optional).
#  Type:		Whether the depot is 'local', 'remote',
#			   'stream', 'spec', 'archive', 'tangent',
#			   or 'unload'.  Default is 'local'.
#  Address:	 Connection address (remote depots only).
#  Suffix:	  Suffix for all saved specs (spec depot only).
#  StreamDepth: Depth for streams in this depot (stream depots only).
#  Map:		 Path translation information (must have ... in it).
#  SpecMap:	 For spec depot, which specs should be recorded (optional).
# Use 'p4 help depot' to see more about depot forms.
