USAGE for get_helix_binaries.sh v1.3.3: get_helix_binaries.sh [-r <HelixMajorVersion>] [-b <Binary1>,<Binary2>,...] [-n] [-D] or get_helix_binaries.sh -h|-man DESCRIPTION: This script acquires Perforce Helix binaries from the Perforce FTP server. The four Helix binaries that can be acquired are: * p4, the command line client * p4d, the Helix Core server * p4p, the Helix Proxy * p4broker, the Helix Broker This script gets the latest patch of binaries for the current major Helix version. It is intended to acquire the latest patch for an existing install, or to get initial binaries for a fresh new install. It must be run from the /hxdepots/sdp/helix_binaries directory (or similar; the /hxdepots directory is the default but is subject to local configuration). The helix_binaries directory is used for staging binaries for later upgrade with the SDP 'upgrade.sh' script (documented separately). This helix_binaries directory is used to stage binaries on the current machine, while the 'upgrade.sh' script updates a single SDP instance (of which there might be several on a machine). The helix_binaries directory may not be in the PATH. As a safety feature, the 'verify_sdp.sh' will report an error if the 'p4d' binary is found outside /p4/common/bin in the PATH. The SDP 'upgrade.sh' check uses 'verify_sdp.sh' as part of its preflight checks, and will refuse to upgrade if any 'p4d' is found outside /p4/common/bin. When a newer major version of Helix binaries is needed, this script should not be modified directly. Instead, the recommended approach is to upgrade the SDP to get the latest version of SDP first, which will included a newer version of this script, as well as the latest 'upgrade.sh'. The 'upgrade.sh' script is updated with each major SDP version to be aware of any changes in the upgrade procedure for the corresponding p4d version. Upgrading SDP first ensures you have a version of the SDP that works with newer versions of p4d and other Helix binaries. OPTIONS: -r <HelixMajorVersion> Specify the Helix Version, using the short form. The form is rYY.N, e.g. r21.2 to denote the 2021.2 release. The default: is r23.1 -b <Binary1>[,<Binary2>,...] Specify a comma-delimited list of Helix binaries. The default is: p4 p4d p4broker p4p -n Specify the '-n' (No Operation) option to show the commands needed to fetch the Helix binaries from the Perforce FTP server without attempting to execute them. -D Set extreme debugging verbosity using bash 'set -x' mode. HELP OPTIONS: -h Display short help message -man Display this manual page EXAMPLES: Note: All examples assume the SDP is in the standard location, /hxdepots/sdp. Example 1 - Typical Usage with no arguments: cd /hxdepots/sdp/helix_binaries ./get_helix_binaries.sh This acquires the latest patch of all 4 binaries for the r23.1 release (aka 2023.1). Example 2 - Specifying the major version: cd /hxdepots/sdp/helix_binaries ./get_helix_binaries.sh -r r21.2 This gets the latest patch of for the 2021.2 release of all 4 binaries. Note: Only supported Helix binaries are guaranteed to be available from the Perforce FTP server. Note: Only the latest patch of any given binary is available from the Perforce FTP server. Example 3 - Sample getting r22.2 and skipping the proxy binary (p4p): cd /hxdepots/sdp/helix_binaries ./get_helix_binaries.sh -r r22.2 -b p4,p4d,p4broker DEPENDENCIES: This script requires outbound internet access. Depending on your environment, it may also require HTTPS_PROXY to be defined, or may not work at all. If this script doesn't work due to lack of outbound internet access, it is still useful illustrating the locations on the Perforce FTP server where Helix Core binaries can be found. If outbound internet access is not available, use the '-n' flag to see where on the Perforce FTP server the files must be pulled from, and then find a way to get the files from the Perforce FTP server to the correct directory on your local machine, /hxdepots/sdp/helix_binaries by default. EXIT CODES: An exit code of 0 indicates no errors were encountered. An non-zero exit code indicates errors were encountered.
