    Engine stops/starts/stops/starts etc

    I don't know if anyone else has seen this but I have two different customers this has happened too. No obviously cause but one day you go to use the client and it says not connected, then it all comes up, then it disconnects again and this repeats. Check the Retrospect control panel on the backup machine and the engine it stopping and starting and stopping etc. Console shows the engine is crashing and restarting. Uninstalling and reinstalling the application doesn't fix it, have to uninstall, remove the files from /Library/Application Support/Retrospect and then reinstall. When this happened the first time (Intel Xserve, 10.4.11, Retrospect 8.1.626) I didn't try putting any of these files back in as it was a pretty new install and we just started again, the latest occurrence (Intel Xserve, 10.5.8, 6.1.626) has been running a while and I would like to preserve scripts, sets etc. Is it just the Config80.dat that needs to go back in? If that's the problem and putting it back in doesn't work is there a way to extract the info from it? TIA

    Anyone got PPC in production?

    Cheers for the replies, sorry for the delay. Performance varies hugely. Here's another: *File "/Volumes/ServerDisk/Users/admin/Library/PubSub/Feeds/67985d021933e1acca0a511092b9b134fd71a89e.xml": didn't compare 7/19/2009 11:50:47 AM: 26 execution errors Remaining: 1 files, 26 KB Completed: 39718 files, 208.6 GB Performance: 529.9 MB/minute (505.2 copy, 557.2 compare) Duration: 13:48:00 (00:24:39 idle/loading/preparing) It's a straight disk to disk duplicate to an external firewire drive, it's usually the compare that's slow tho, you can watch it in the morning crawling through a compare, often saying something like "39 files remaining" but just carrying on and on and on. Any thoughts? Cheers.

    And what's the performance like? I have a very similar machine doing disk duplication backups and it's unusably slow, seems to be the verify: 7/22/2009 4:19:07 AM: Comparing ServerBackup 7/22/2009 4:21:51 AM: 5 execution errors Completed: 472 files, 1986 KB Performance: 587.7 MB/minute (592.2 copy, 0.7 compare) Duration: 06:19:22 (00:18:22 idle/loading/preparing) Any thoughts?
