Now I have two tickets, one with the IP address of the server and the
other with the DNS name.

I need to keep my existing build environment running, since all of our
product build run there. How can I set this up to run this version of P4
when I'm logged in as the new domain user, while still allowing the
other environment to run? Should I just place this p4.exe closer the
front of the new users PATH?

Hi Scott,

Thanks for all that.

That definitely confirms it's public depot P4Perl.

Thanks, while the server version is not as important as the client in
instance, it's always relevant.

I had forgotten - thanks for the reminder :)

OK. As a test, could you download a 2006.2 p4 client to your build
and run these commands using that instead of the 2007.3 p4. 

	p4 login -s	# probably will say P4PASSWD invalid...
	p4 login	# create a new ticket
	p4 tickets	# you will see two tickets for the same server I

Then try running your test script again, and see if it works.
