  1. Does anyone have a clue or suggestion here ? -X
  2. I am having issues backing up my MDK9.1 server from a Retro 5.1 Server running on OS9.2.2 Anytime the folder depth on the server exceeds 10 levels deep the backup will fail with error code: -24261 (mapid database is corrupt). If I reorganize the folders to keep the depth a 9 or less levels all is fine. This only happens on my linux server. Mac and Windows clients are not affected by this. I have verified that I am using the latest linux client (issued 7/2003). Any help greatly appreciated. TIA -Xathros

    Linux Client Max Directory Depth ?

    UPDATE: Your solution of upping the meory seems to have solved the problem. Oddly, the change didn't work until the OS9 machine was restarted. I guess I should have tried that first. Anyway - thanks for the help. -Bill

    Linux Client Max Directory Depth ?

    I have upped the allocated memory from 3.8mb to 20mb and the problem still exists. Are there any configuration settings for the client on the Linux end ? -Bill

    Linux Client Max Directory Depth ?

    Hmmm. As I understand, MDK is Redhat with some extras added on. And Retrospect does work with this one exception. All is fine until we exceed level 10 in the directory nesting structure. If I mount the volume on the MAC desktop and run the backup from that mounted volume, there are no problems but the backup is slower than death over Appletalk. The limit seems to be within the Retrospect Linux client and not with Linux itself as I can create very deep structures on the Linux volume without any trouble. I can access those structures from the MAC worstations and PC based workstations without any problems. I will increase the Mem allocated to Retrospect to see if that helps any. We do not use VM on the MAC's. Thanks for any insight. -Bill
  6. We have just set up a new Linux Mandrake 9.1 server and are trying to backup our files using retrospect 5.1 on a MAC 9.1 Backup machine connecting to a Retrospect Linux client. On many occasions, a backup will faile with error code -24261 (mapid database corrupt) This appears to happen with the directory depth is 10 or more levels deep. Is there anyway to increase this limit ? TIA -BillO
