P4DTI issue job000397

TitleObscure error message when Perforce client incompatible with server
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionIf you run the P4DTI with Perforce server 2001.1 but Perforce client 2000.2 you get an obscure error message that is little help in tracking down the problem.
The obscure error message is as follows:
(P4DTI-7087) Error detected at line 29. Value for field 'Options' must be one of noallwrite/allwrite,noclobber/clobber,nocompress/compress,unlocked/locked,nomodtime/modtime,normdir/rmdir.
AnalysisThe message can be looked up in the AG, section 11.3, but first impressions are important and we could certainly produce a better error message.
