  1. NO, I am using my SCSI LTO-3 Autoloader as EMC doesn't seem to support my SAS Autoloader (yet). I have an inquiry into EMC technical support about it, but I haven't heard back. Call technical support as, at least, your hardware is on the qualified list.
  2. Here's a log excerpt from a Grooming session within a backup session where I got the same error as everyone else: - 2/20/2010 10:56:47 PM: Copying /state/partition1 on goddard (rhel4) 2/21/2010 12:04:57 AM: Grooming Backup Set goddard_disk... 2/21/2010 2:58:08 AM: Groomed 2,916.3 GB from Backup Set goddard_disk.

In my backup set, I have over 9500 rdb files, about 5.1TB, and Groom took about 3 hours, then 3 minutes later, I get the "end of data" warning. I am getting file/folder not found as client is searching for temp files that are no longer there as this is Linux high-performance cluster running jobs that generate many temp files that go away. So, maybe I got lucky and my corrupt rdb files were on my last backup/grooming day?? BTW, my disk set is on a 12.2TB RAID6 array of 20 disks, and I'm running 7.6 MultiServer on x64 Windows 2003 R2.

    LTO-4 Autoloader

    It's a year later. Any closer to supporting popular SAS Autoloaders? I have an IBM TS3100 SAS 24-slot Autoloader (Tape Library).
  4. I have an IBM TS3100 SAS with 24-slot library and LTO4 tape drive, with 7.6 Multiserver, and Autoloader (tape library) doesn't show up at all, only tape drive, so I'm guessing Autoloader isn't supported in SAS for the IBM TS3100 (SAS version isn't showing up in supported devices on website)? Windows 2003 R2 Server x64 Retrospect Multiserver 7.6.123 Driver Upd/Hotfix 7.6.3.102 SAS Controller: SuperMicro AOC-USAS-S4i Raid Controller Driver: Adaptec 5.2.0.15934 4/2/2008 In Retrospect, I get this in Devices: Vendor: IBM Product: ULT3580-TD4 Version: 89B2 Driver: IBM Ultrium 4DC (1.41) But no Tape Library shows up. I had some trouble finding the right driver to work Windows x64, but that is resolved now, and everything works in web interface to TS3100. Is support for IBM TS3100 SAS Autoloader planned in Retrospect in near future? It's looking like I made a poor choice in selecting the TS3100 SAS model as opposed to LDV or FC.
  5. Post the log entry for that job. I sometimes get incomplete for VERY minor problems, like it can't back up one file that is locked or says "sharing violation."
  6. Backup Server: 7.6 Multi on 2x Xeon 5110 1.6GHz CPUs, 4GB RAM, W2K3 SVR x86 on 100Mbps cisco 2950 switch, 8x 750GB sata II in RAID 5 on a 3Ware 9650SE in protection mode (slowest) w/ BBU. I usually get anywhere from 100MB/min to 600MB/min backup performance using MD5 verify on same switch or several hops away. I sometimes get better performance if client and servers are NOT on the same switch if that makes any sense? I backup a mixture of XP, W2K3, OSX, Debian, RHEL, and CentOS clients.

I thought I would be getting faster performance to our file server on same switch (client 1) but this is only a 100Mbps switch. I'm getting much better performance on the new server (last entry) on 1Gbps switch with x64 OS.
  7. I have two Windows 2003 Server R2 x64 boxes with Retrospect MultiServer 7.6 installed that both hang on startup in Terminal Session mode after running one time or after one reboot. When I go to console and start Retrospect that way, it starts fine. When it hangs, I get an outline of the Retrospect window but graphics don't draw and I can't close window in the normal way. I have to End Task. If I re-install over existing, Retrospect will run again one time, until I close it or reboot. If I turn off "Enable Retrospect Launcher Service," in Preferences, it starts fine in Terminal Services session mode. I suspect there is some incompatibility with x64 mode or with my display driver and Launcher Service in Terminal Service mode? I'd like to enable Launcher Service, but I usually leave Retrospect running all the time in Terminal Services session mode, so it's not really a deal breaker. I only access these servers in Terminal Services mode via Remote Desktop. Any thoughts?

    7.5 Clients

    Waltr, Re: Retrospect Client Terminated (error <1MB memory in /tmp) on CentOS 4.3 (RHEL 4) BTW, CentOS 4.3 is 100% binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL 4), so I don't think it was a library problem. It finds the "/etc/redhat-release" and installs everything as it should with Redhat. I got it working by downloading the newer 7.5 Linux RPM client (Mar 2006). I had a first generation 7.5 client (Jan 2006). Don't know if it was the actual client or just re-installing that did the trick. Upon re-installing the client, I did get the "client was installed, but could not be started" message: Adding RETROSPECT_HOME to system profile and login scripts...Done! Before attempting to use any of the GUI components of the Retrospect Client, you must have both the RETROSPECT_HOME and DISPLAY variables set. The RETROSPECT_HOME variable should point to /usr/local/dantz/client. We have modified your /etc/profile and /etc/.login files to set this value for future logins. The retrospect client launched as part of this installation process will also have this variable set. However, if you kill that client and restart it without logging out, you will need to set these variables manually. LSB Version: :core-3.0-ia32:core-3.0-noarch:graphics-3.0-ia32:graphics-3.0-noarch There is less than 1MB of memory free on /tmp. Retrospect Client Terminated. Starting client as daemon... There is less than 1MB of memory free on /tmp. Retrospect Client Terminated. Installation was successful, but Retrospect Client could not be started. If this is an upgrade, please wait 5 minutes, then start the client manually by running $ /usr/local/dantz/client/rcl start Press "Enter" to close this window. I closed window and waited a few minutes, then was able to start "rcl." And, it works from a reboot after putting the start command in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. *update* Backup worked last night--all 6GB worth, so I'm happy. If I get time, I'll install client on another CentOS machine to see if it does the same thing.

    7.5 Clients

    Linux CentOS 4.3 (~RHEL 4) using volume group and logical volumes. I installed 7.5 client and it appeared to install correctly, but trying to start client gives me this error: There is less than 1MB of memory free on /tmp. Retrospect Client Terminated. There's plenty of room on / and /tmp, so I don't know what's happening. I deleted the retroclient.state file and that didn't matter. Environment variables are set properly in /etc/profile. ~Brent
  10. I'm using Retrospect WIN Multi Server 7.5 with several Win 7.0 clients on W2k3 server boxen and just upgraded them using my Multi Svr Retrospect interface. Upon reboot, every client on these W2k3 boxes is complaining that it cannot start the "Retrospect Helper" service. Event Log error: Event Type: Error Event Source: Service Control Manager Event Category: None Event ID: 7000 Date: 3/16/2006 Time: 5:24:25 PM User: N/A Computer: SCI-GRANITE Description: The Retrospect Helper service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the path specified. In looking into, it looks like the path changed between 7.0 and 7.5 client: 7.0: "C:\Program Files\Dantz\Client\rthlpsvc.exe" 7.5: "C:\Program Files\Retrospect\Retrospect Client\rthlpsvc.exe" and 7.5 failed to update the Retrospect Helper service, hence the error. A little irritating...I guess I can recreate the service with proper path? Or uninstall, and re-install 7.5 client. More work!
