Issue: Unable to Open a swarm web page, after migrating the swarm application to a new IP address. Swarm has detected an error Please investigate the below PHP error: Command failed: Perforce password (P4PASSWD) invalid or unset. /opt/perforce/swarm/library/P4/Connection/AbstractConnection.php on line 1153 error message.
Perforce password (P4PASSWD) invalid or unset
Root Cause: Swarm application is unable to reach to perforce server and unable to query P4PORT
Check-in Perforce server, Open a Command prompt and check below things
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600] (c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Check-in Swarm application server and update the correct token value in config.php file
cat /opt/perforce/swarm/data/config.php <?php /* WARNING: The contents of this file is cached by Swarm. Changes to * it will not be picked up until the cached versions are removed. * See the documentation on the 'Swarm config cache'. */ return array( 'environment' => array( 'hostname' => 'swarm-server', ), 'p4' => array( 'port' => '192.168.1.84:1666', 'user' => 'swarmuser', 'password' => '9B89D59291C8DCABBA702A14F8377164', 'auto_register_url' => false, ),
Now delete cache from Swarm server
cd /opt/perforce/swarm/data/ rm -rf cache
Restart apache server
service apache2 restart
Few more commands to check the status from the Swarm application. below command works then token is working fine.
/opt/perforce/bin/p4 -u swarmuser -p perforce-server:1666 -P 9B89D59291C8DCABBA702A14F8377164 login -s User SwarmAdmin ticket expires in 146009 hours 54 minutes.
Another way to generate a new token value as below
1. login the swarm user
/opt/perforce/bin/p4 -p perforce-server:1666 -u swarmuser login -a
2. get the user’s ticket
/opt/perforce/bin/p4 -p perforce-server:1666 -u swarmuser login -ap
3. Clear the cache
curl -u “swarmuser:ticket-value” -X DELETE “https://myswarm.url/api/v9/cache/config/”
# substitute ticket-value with the output from step 2
That’s it. it will resolve the issue.
