The Perforce Server 2014.2 release marks the launch of a clustered server solution that assures highly available, fault tolerant, and consistent revision data and scales up via workspace partitioning. The cluster, designed to be deployed in a tightly coupled server center, is a collection of servers acting in concert to appear as a single central server. One or more cluster routers front the servers; each router supplies a concrete access point that maps the request to the workspace server hosting the user's client data.

Perforce Server has an unmatched track record for stability and high performance. Modern businesses like Salesforce, VMware and others run millions of commands against their server instances each day, without interruption. In the latest release of the Perforce Server we have moved the bar even higher. New support for both horizontal scalability and high availability configurations make it possible to extend the platform to serve tens of thousands of users in a single environment, and any downtime is a thing of the past.

I suggested updating your Git clients in a recent blog post because of a new Git release that addressed a critical vulnerability (CVE-2014-9390 for those interested). Git users at Perforce have subsequently identified some unhappy side effects, and our internal brain trust has worked up a simple approach for dealing with them. The purpose of this blog post is to explain the problem and highlight the fix for the good of the larger Git community.
