Hi,

Perforce tech note 75 says:

"Please note: Unix-to-Windows (or case-sensitive to case-insensitive)
migrations are NOT SUPPORTED due to the potential for data loss."

If I _have to_ move a Perforce server from Solaris to Windows...
If I:
  - verify there are no files that differ in name by case only
  - change line endings from *nix to Windoze

What else is there that would cause Perforce not to support this move use case?
Or perhaps is it the inherant risk in both of those steps(?).
