  1. I have two client (mail servers) with the same name because I'm migrating from one to the other. The application requires the name of the machines to be the same because one is replacing the other. I'd like to setup a backup of the new one before removing the old one, but when I click "Add" in the add client, it just seem to ignore me.

     

    I'm assuming that is because it thinks it already exists. If I run test, it gets the right information. I also tried to add by IP address, but this fails as well.

     

    Any ideas on how to get this done? Is my assessment of what is blocking it from adding even likely?

  2. Y'll are probably going to want to know version information.

     

    Windows Server 7.7.762 and Linux Client 7.7.100

     

    Client status says this after a failure:

    $ sudo service rcl status
    Server "ClientName":
            Version 7.7.100
            reserved by ServerName for Immediate Backup
            back up ASAP
            currently on
            readonly is off
            exclude is off
            1 connections, 1 authenticated
     

    As it fails the server reports (automatic or manual backups don't make a difference):

    "Can't reserve backup client ClientName, error -519 (network communication failed).

    10/17/2013 2:48:09 AM: Execution incomplete

    Total performance: 124.5MB/minute

    Total duration: 04:31:33 (02:22:40 idle/loading/preparing)"

     

    After failure server says "Can't acess backup client ClientName, error -505 ( backup client reserved)" until I restart the client. (This error I see on other servers also somewhat regularly, but it clears with a service restart.)

     

    I've also seen the error -519 on the server with the message "Trouble reading files" and saying it can't reserve the remaining volumes after saying the one it was working on was incomplete.

  3. I've been having trouble with one of our many Ubuntu machines backing up. For awhile it just would fail to release the client and I'd have to go in and restart the rcl service frequently. This became more frequent and now I simply can't run backups. It'll run for about 4 hours and fail, locking the daemon, blocking further backups and the message "reserved for Immediate Backup" is reported when I run retrocpl. I can try again after stopping and starting the rcl service.

     

    Is what I'm seeing connection problems of some sort? Any idea what is disrupting the connection?

     

    I've turned up the logging which resulted in the following. This machine also have several virtual NICs eth0:0-9 so I bound it to the IP on eth0. Since this problem began I have upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 in hopes something old was in the way. I've tried simply uninstalling the software and reinstalling it, reacquainting it with the Retrospect server.

     
    These log entries are from the daemon started with the follwing command /usr/local/dantz/client/retroclient -ip 10.x.x.11 -log 55 -daemon. The file I find them in is /var/log/retroclient.log.

  4. I ended up uninstalling and re-installing, but I'd like something I could easily script that just does some config changes. I don't yet know if I can automate this part of the cloning process to be able to maintain the Retrospect connection next time I do a clone. I may need to entirely uninstall, reinstall and reconnect the machine to the scripts each time I do a clone.

     

    Any advice on automating this would be most appreciated.
