Hi,

actually we have a weekly change of tape, and a change of the tape every month:

Month :

septembre

week1 - tape1

week2 - tape2

week3 - tape3

week4 - tape september

 

october

week1 - tape1

week2 - tape2

week3 -tape3

week4 - tape october

 

We have only one script, one backup set,with different planning:

Now, it come sometime a problem : waiting for ... and the backup doesn't start. Can someone help us?

Thank's

Hi Nate,

 

I'm studing the situation, and now I have 3 problems:

 

1. when I logout from the server, retrospect doesn't start a planified backup!

2. In the operation log I don't find an error number about what he is waiting for... I can read only "time of attended support past due".

3. Today I receive a message error from retrospect "droxy.cpp-1438" with an "assert_log.utx"

 

I have retrospect 6.5.336 in Italian.

 

Thank's

Ronny

Hi

 

I have never seen this type of assert error before. Try this:

Stay logged in but keep Retrospect closed. Will Retrospect launch at the correct time in this situation?

 

Thanks

Nate

Hi,

 

when I stay logged ... it's better.

 

Sometimes the retrospecthandler.bat doesn't start ... the script start, backup, check, but cannot send a email to confirm -> He wait restrospecthandler.bat. The strange is that for 3-4 week it's all ok (without problem) and perhaps a day after it doesn't start the email. He wait.

How can I configure to skip the retrospecthandler.bat event after 1 hour?

The server is 80 km far, and we want a email notification every day (good or problem).

 

Thank's

Ronny

Hi

 

I see now. The event handler script may be part of the problem.

 

Are you using the VBS event handler or the batch file? The VBS version may work better.

 

Retrospect 7 has notification for sucessful backup built in. You may want to download the trial version to see if it works better for you.

 

Thanks

Nate
