We would like to install a retroclient on a Synology RS815RP+ NAS running DSM 6.1.3-15152. We know that Retrospect Clients are not officially supported on Synology or Qnap, but we have a client already working well on another RS815RP+, installed by our previous linux specialist. Our current specialist wrote: "I haven't been able to find any documentation regarding installing RCL on a synology device. I'm hesitant to try on a production device as synology's "linux" is their own special distribution. Retrospect I think recommends installing the RCL on a windows or linux machine (as normal), and mounting the NAS device on your RCL target, and just backing up the mounted directory" Has anyone else done a client install and are there any special considerations that must be made?
I have been having problem backing up shares on Qnap and Synology workstations. Symptoms: Retrospect hang with beach-ball icon, force quit on activity monitor doesn't help, whole system has to be rebooted ( a pain when working remotely) In console log there will be continuous messages of "afpfs_DoReconnect" loops Have got a updated version of Retrospect from support, which worked for one backupset, but with worrying log files. Solution: In my case it was a assumption by retrospect that I run a Windows server with workgroups. If NAS device is 10.0.0.100, with user admin | adminpassword, connect to share as user= 10.0.0.100\admin (local user), and password = adminpassword Since doing this have run backups succesfully, and log not full of "Not done after 30s", or "error -1011, API request" Hope this helps someone, as it got really frustrating playing with retro.ini files. My config : Retrospect Server 15, running on Mac Pro Xeon, backing up to LTO6 via SAS
