Retrospect Client on Suse SLES9 ?

Recommended Posts

hi abe,

 

i have not done this, but i don't see any reason it could not work. have you tried? if so, what errors are you getting.

 

do you think the change from 8 to 9 is really radically different? it's probable that the systems aren't so different, but EMC would like to test before they put it on the 'approved' list. FWIW, they do seem to add versions of Linux pretty regularly.

It should work, because the client is approved for RHEL4 (which is kernel 2.6) and Novell Linux Desktop 9 (which is Suse). Suse SLES9 is kernel 2.6 also. I am about to try it. I will post my results.

It seems to be working and not exhibiting the previous problems I experienced where the Retrospect client daemon would have to be stopped and started on the Linux machine. I'm getting good speed - about 1600 MB per min. Both machines are on gigabit.

 

7.5 seems to be a very solid release so far.
