  1. Hi, Running OS X 10.8.5 on the client-MacBook Pro, with client version 10.1.0 (221). I wanted to change the hostname of the OS X system. After changing the name, uninstalling and re-installing the Retrospect client - all with the provided packages, the old client name keeps showing up in the Retrospect client. I have deleted the old client from the 'Configure Clients' window on the Server Windows (8.5.0 (136) ), changed the DNS name on our DNS server, cleared the ARP cache on the client system and on the DNS server. I have also looked for a Retrospect Preferences file on the client but have not found one. I re-install the client and the old hostname (Client Name) shows up; no matter what I do I cannot seem to change the hostname in the Retrospect Client. I really don't want to be forced to re-install the OS and all the apps. Any suggestions? It seems to me there is some preference file that's not getting erased when I use the Uninstall from the client package.
