[p4] Merging Multiple Perforce Server Databases to a Single Server

Hi All,

We have 3 perforce servers from 3 companies that have merged into one company. The servers are remotely located, and we feel that development would be better served by combining the servers and using proxies, since this will cut down on the number of licenses that we'll need. Each engineer has 2 or 3 licenses to access all of the servers, and we want to consolidate.

Has anyone ever successfully completed this task?

I know there will be issues with duplicate depot names, but I can't find any information on the Perforce web site as to how this task would be accomplished, with or without conflicting depot names.
