  1. I've got one client which the server isn't using Instant Scan for backup. This just started after the 7PM backup of the client last night. Backups were running in 15-20 minutes with ISA on, now take at least 30 minutes, likely more. Retrospect 10.5.0 (145) on a Mac Mini quad-core i7 running Mac OS X 10.7.5. Instant Scan is enabled in the client (Mac OS X Server 10.6.8 on a 2006 xServe). RetroISA process is happily chewing up CPU cycles there as well. "Using Instant Scan" is missing from the start of the backup log for this client. It is present on backups of other clients. Client was at 10.2 something earlier, so I upgraded to 10.5 client. I've disabled & enabled Instant Scan on the client side. I don't see anything on the forums about this problem or how to troubleshoot it. This server was restarted last Friday, early morning. Any suggestions? Short of a restart (which is difficult for this server), anything else to try? Thanks. Cheers, Jon
  2. I think a better solution would be to include in the engine installer commands to stop the engine if it is running, perform the installation, then start the engine again. That would be the way that many applications handle this scenario. Cheers, Jon
  3. I'm considering purchasing the Disk-to-Disk edition to backup my Win2008r2 Server. Does anyone have practical experience in setting this up with add-ons like SQL Server & Open File? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Jon

    Setup Guide?

    Robin, Can you add this to the documentation for 10.x and 8.x, please. I don't think the app is even mentioned in the 10.x documentation (at least not under "iOS"), but it should be listed, if nowhere else, but in an appendix. The first place I turn is the documentation before the forums or other support channels. Thanks. Cheers, Jon
  5. I know with v8, even though I had volumes on the desktop, if it wasn't via the major protocols (afp or smb) I couldn't add it. Cheers, Jon
