linux clients keeps deferring automatically

Recommended Posts

I am using retrospect v6.0.204 on a mac. I have installed two linux clients and it has run smoothly. My third one keeps just deferring. I don't know linux but the person who does, doesn't know why. He looked in the log and got

"Apr 26 16:16:41 machinename Retrospect[1839]:ConnWriteData: send() failed with error 9".

One for each time it was deferred.

Earlier in the log there was

Hi

 

It looks like this is a 6.5 version of the client. Uninstall the client and reinstall with the 7.0 client software from the updates page. It is compatible with Retrospect 6.0 for mac.

 

Thanks

Nate

we've tried that, it didn't work. we tried to look at the retroclient.sh and the machine was having a problem with java, would this be related?

Hi,

 

Does the Linux computer that does not work have more than one ethernet card?

 

Also, did you install via RPM or source?

It has one ethernet card and was installed via rpm.

 

we've tried commenting out that line and it still doesn't work.

The fix for me was:

 

Comment out RETROSPECT_HOME in /etc/profile

 

Execute: unset RETROSPECT_HOME

 

Execute: /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99retroclient stop

Execute: /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99retroclient start

 

Check the above commands, they may differ on your system. Just look for the retroclient file.

 

System is a Dell Poweredge 750 with RHEL3, 2 ethernet cards, and Retrospect client 6.5.108 on server 6.5.350.

 

Good luck!
