Interesting... I just replied to your post about this issue. Perhaps the threads should be merged? Quote: I had made a post about the same error code this morning (see thread title "error -540 (trouble creating service) and unexpected EOF" thread number : 96030 - 04/11/07 05:46 AM). Will the EOF issue (casuing the error 540) also be addressed? This seems to be happening on any files that are dynamic (files that have a constantly changing size ... especially files that could shrink in size as the backup server is trying to grab them).
unitedfuture replied to UoD's topic in Linux, Unix and Netware ClientsNo solution but this should bump some life back in this thread. I am experiencing the same issue but only on an older system that I haven't upgraded to Fedora Core 5 yet. I don't have this problem on my other FC5 machines so there is something in Core 4 that Retrospect 7.5 doesn't like. I can also confirm that the EOF errors are on recently changed files (like my MRTG updated html files). Any update on your situation would helpful. Thanks. --kduane edit (for search engines sake): the actual error message in the Retrospect Operations log is: Trouble reading files, error -540 (trouble creating service) 5/29/2007 10:16:47 AM: Execution incomplete
