  1. Has anyone tried repackaging the Mac client for use with automated installation systems (ARD, munki, ...) I believe the repackaging is necessary to be able to pre-set the first-connect password. Thanks in advance.

    Finding Subvolume location

    Should have been more specific: Dealing with a OSX volume(HFS+). On these, the Location info just shows the name of the volume. Does anyone know a way to find the path location when dealing with a Mac client? Thanks.

    Finding Subvolume location

    Is there a way to find the path location of an existing subvolume? For instance, on a Windows client, I might have a subvolume named "Joe" on the volume "Local Disk (C:)." Is there a way from within Retrospect that I can find out that the "Joe" subvolume points to "C:\Documents and Settings\Joe"? I can't seem to find this information anywhere. Properties of the subvolume only tells me what volume it is located on and what type of file system it is. Thanks in advance.

    Recycle Backup Question

    I think I have fixed the problem. Apparently, the tapes weren't full, its just Retrospect was asking for the wrong tape for the backup set. I had set the strategy to do a recycle backup on tuesday at 2 am with a normal backup every other day at 2 am. This meant that I could flip the tapes on Monday at 9am. Problem was that Retrospect was trying to backup to the wrong set on Sunday and Monday. Something weird in the way the scheduler handles "every other week." Anyway, hopefully the new setup will solve the problem - thanks for all your help :-)

    Recycle Backup Question

    Member listing is 1 - Tape 1 2.7G used There aren't any others listed here although it always asks for 1- Tape 2 whenever I do a backup to this set. Should I just erase the tapes and try again? Will I need to "forget" the catalog? Thanks.

    Recycle Backup Question

    Cut from Log: + Recycle backup using Server Backup Alpha at 7/2/2002 2:00 AM To backup set Tape 1... 7/2/2002 2:00:18 AM: Recycle backup: The backup set was reset - 7/2/2002 2:00:18 AM: Copying Sys (C:) File "C:\WINNT\system32\Perflib_Perfdata_4b8.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation) Can't back up Certificate Services when it is not started 7/2/2002 2:11:13 AM: Snapshot stored, 39.1 MB 7/2/2002 2:11:22 AM: Comparing Sys (C:) File "C:\WINNT\Tasks\Windows Critical Update Notification.job": different modify date/time (set: 7/2/2002 2:09:00 AM, vol: 7/2/2002 2:19:00 AM) 7/2/2002 2:21:36 AM: 3 execution errors Completed: 12501 files, 1.8 GB Performance: 174.8 MB/minute (170.6 copy, 179.2 compare) Duration: 00:21:18 (00:00:58 idle/loading/preparing) - 7/2/2002 2:21:36 AM: Copying Home (D:) 7/2/2002 2:26:44 AM: Snapshot stored, 1,929 KB 7/2/2002 2:26:47 AM: Comparing Home (D:) 7/2/2002 2:31:52 AM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 2923 files, 613.0 MB Performance: 125.9 MB/minute (123.8 copy, 128.5 compare) Duration: 00:10:16 (00:00:30 idle/loading/preparing) 7/2/2002 2:31:52 AM: 3 execution errors Total performance: 158.9 MB/minute Total duration: 00:31:34 (00:01:30 idle/loading/preparing) Quit at 7/2/2002 2:32 AM By my estimate, this come out to about 2.4 - 2.7GB.... I see the line where it says the backup set was reset, but how come the tape is filling up? Even if I copied all the data every night, I should be able to get at least 7 sessions on there (without compression - but I am using compression....) Any ideas? Thanks again.

    Recycle Backup Question

    Thanks Melissa, but thats already set. All the logs look like its actually doing the recycle backups, its just not erasing first, so the tape fills up. Any other ideas?
  8. New Retrospect user question: I am trying to backup a server (Win2kServer) running Retrospect Workgroup 5.6.132. I have created two Backup sets to rotate between; doing Recycle Backups once a week with a Normal Backup every other night. My problem is that the recycle backups are not erasing the contents of the tape. This leads to my ~2.7GB of data getting copied onto the tape multiple times to the point where the 40GB tape is full and asking to add another tape to the backup set. How can I (automatically) force the Recycle Backup to erase the contents of the tape so I won't need to flip tapes at 3am? Thanks. Also, is there a way to script a tape eject?
