Centralized Administration: P4Admin Will Assimilate You
Well, not really. But the upcoming 2010.2 release of P4Admin does support several new features that make it easier for administrators to manage large, complex sites.
Central authentication and changelist management
The 2010.2 release of the Perforce server added full support for centralized authentication and changelist servers. A central authentication server provides user, protections, and license administration to other servers. A central changelist server ensures unique changelist numbers across several servers. These features make multi-server administration easier.
Central Auth and Change Servers
P4Admin now recognizes when a central authentication or changelist server is in use, and displays that information on the home tab.

Licenses from Auth Server
The user and group information is pulled correctly from the authentication server, and the protections table displays a warning that some settings are derived from the authentication server.
Protections from Auth Server
P4Admin now also supports the password aging setting for groups.
