  1. I have found a workaround for the Appleshare IP crash problem - at least one that works for me. I discovered that it was not ASIP per se that was the problem, but rather ASIP filesharing. When I turned off filesharing, the backup proceeded with no problems. Given the way I saw the crashes happen (sometimes an immediate crash, sometimes no crash for a minute or two), here's what I think is going on. The backup starts just fine, but then if someone makes a file access while the backup is happening, the crash occurs. Without filesharing on, this can't happen. Now I understand that some have fileservers that have to be up all the time, but it's a workaround, not a solution. The real pain is that the stop and start have to be done by hand, at least I think so. I haven't been able to find any AppleScript way to turn filesharing on and off. Anyone know of a way?

  2. Removing that file didn't do it. It was just a coincidence. Don
  3. Another piece of information. It's not the lack of CarbonLib 1.5. I installed that on my ASIP server, and tried another backup. It crashed after about 90 MB. I did notice something interesting, however. The file that was being copied when the crash occurred was AdobeFnt.lst. That's a strange enough name ot stick in my mind. I didn't write it down after other crahses, so I can't be sure, but I think that's the filename that has been copying during the other crashes as well. I have several files with that name on my server, so I don't know wich one it is. If I get a chance later today, I'll try removing all copies of that file, and try again. Don Carlile
  4. Yes, I am running Mac OS 9.1 on my server. Checking CarbonLib , I find the version is 1.1.1. Don Carlile
  5. As I said in a different thread, this is happening to me, too. I am running Retrospect 5 on a Mac OS X 10.1.3 machine. When the backup starts on the AppleShare IP 6.3.3 server (running on a PowerMac G4/450 in 9.1), the file checking procedes normally, the updating priveleges completes successfully, and then the Copying starts. After that, my experience varies. Usually, the server crashes as soon as the first file is attempted to be copied. One time, aaround 90 MB were copied before the crash. I have Macsbug on the Server, but it reports different apps were active when the crashes occurred. No pattern. I hope Dantz can find te problem quickly. Thanks Don Carlile
  6. I installed the new update, and my AppleshareIP 6.3.3 server still crashed during backup. I will give it this: It looks like it got through more files before it crashed. The first version crashed it as soon as as started copying. Looks like it got through a few MB this time. Don Carlile
