[p4] Query on Perforce Restoration

I have two Perforce servers: A primary server and a backup server. As
part of this process, Perforce gave me -- for no additional charge -- a
backup server license. If our primary Perforce server goes down, I can
be back up in a matter of minutes.
Now, since I have a second server sitting on my network not doing much
of anything (sort of like a Lieutenant Governor. It does nothing unless
the big guy croaks), I use it as a test server. And, since I have a
backup license for this box with the same number of licenses as my main
Perforce server, I have no problems starting it up and attaching clients
Find a box to dedicate as your backup server, and ask Perforce for a
backup license for this server. The license is free, and it will allow
you not just to experiment with restorations, but with such things as
refactoring your depot, integrating third party software, playing around
and breaking triggers, and if you're really ambitious, editing your
checkpoint file by hand and restoring your database from that just to
see what happens.

Subject: [p4] Query on Perforce Restoration
I am testing Perforce restoration process for my project.
I have created a new Perforce instance for restoration and reached upto
executing p4d command successfully.
Now when I want to start Perforce server and point a Perforce client at
it, the server shuts down as this Perforce installation has license for
two uers whereas the restored environment has 100 users.
I do not have spare licenses to test the restoration.
Can someone suggest some solution please?
