  1. Retrospect has a selector with a default set of exclusions for windows. I set about creating one for Ubuntu Linux Workstations. I found this very useful article on AskUbuntu, and used it as my base. This is my Exclusion list, you may well need to tune it a bit for your own situation Folders .gvfs .cache *.Trash* *trash* .thumbnails .dropbox and / or your favourite Web Storage(s) /tmp/ Folders &/ Files cache* thumbnails* Files *.backup* *~ *Thumb.db Selector File Attached

  3. I've managed to install it, but testing the client on this one machine running Ubuntu 12.04.5 has proven problematic. Another 12.04 machine with the version 9 client has been fine. Whenever the server connects to the client, it is reserved but fails to respond locking up the client. This line gets placed in /var/log/retroclient.log 25 11:16:37: CreateNewProcess: execl() of /usr/local/retrospect/client/retropds.23 failed, errno = 2 and the relevant processes look like this, notice the defunct process $ sudo service rcl status Server "GTv001": Version 9.5.0.113 reserved by CLGR2 for Preparing... back up according to normal schedule currently on readonly is off exclude is off 1 connections, 1 authenticated 25 13:06:19: PmcClose: Handle 3 closed $ ps -ef |grep retr root 11354 1 0 12:54 pts/1 00:00:00 /usr/local/retrospect/client/retroclient root 14068 11354 0 12:56 pts/1 00:00:00 [retroclient] <defunct> $ pstree -p 11354 retroclient(11354)─┬─retroclient(14068) ├─{retroclient}(11360) ├─{retroclient}(11361) ├─{retroclient}(11362) ├─{retroclient}(11363) ├─{retroclient}(11364) ├─{retroclient}(11768) ├─{retroclient}(11769) └─{retroclient}(13555) $ pstree -p 14068 retroclient(14068) I've tried uninstalling the client using this blunt little script, clearing out the processes it left behind and reinstalling. #!/bin/sh /usr/local/retrospect/client/retrocpl -stop /usr/local/dantz/client/retrocpl -stop rm -rf /usr/local/retrospect/ rm -rf /usr/local/dantz/ rm /etc/init.d/rcl rm /var/log/retroclient.* rm /usr/local/man/man1/retroc* rm /usr/man/man1/retroc* rm /usr/share/info/retroclient.info.gz Any idea what can be done for this error?
  4. I'm playing around with getting the proper 32-bit libs for Ubuntu setup in the latest LTS. The old trick of just install ia32-libs doesn't work because that package doesn't exist. It looks like running 'sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386' will bring the 32-bit c++ libraries needed. Has anyone else played around with this and have more information on the process of installing this?
  5. 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. 1381998420: connTCPConnection: conn = -188741752, code = 300, tid = 20, count = 540 1381998420: connTransMsg: writing message 300, 20, cpSX
