[p4] what do you do to verify perforce upgrade is good

"p4 info"    tells you the server is up.
----
"p4 changes"    tells you that you're a valid user and that it can  
read basic metadata.
"p4 users"    tells you that you're a valid user and that it can read  
basic metadata.
"p4 files //..."    tells you that you're a valid user and that it  
can read basic metadata.

"p4 describe -s XXX"    tells you basic metadata for changelist  
number XXX.
---
"p4 describe XXX"    runs the diffs, also. That requires file content.

If the first doesn't work, check the P4PORT. Is the server started?
If the first works, but nothing else, the metadata wasn't restored.
If the first and second work, but not the third, you didn't restore /  
backup the depot/*
tree of revisions. (For upgrades, this is not an issue; for backup/ 
restore operations
it is.
If all of these work, try a test build.
