Retro 9 Sitting Idle?

Recommended Posts

Much like its predecessor, Retro 9 seems to be showing some of the same quirks, slowdowns and annoyances of its former past.

Case in point. I have a proactive script set to run 24 hours. It has 7 clients. Currently in the proactive activity tab, it says that its "waiting for next backup" and its set to occur "Today at 8:58am"

Well its 3pm right now and it still hasnt @#^& run!

 

When I flip over to the Running activity tab, absolutely nothing is happening. The whole server is just sitting there DEAD IDLE.

If your proactive script has 7 clients in it -- if you look in the Activities list -- have any of the client backups within that script run?

 

What if you stop/start the engine again?

This was a V8 problem (haven't checked it for sure in v9) where the time shown was the client time and if the client clock is off you see what you describe. Worth a quick check to see it that is the situation.

Yes, the script is running, its just not running consistently. Its like it just sits around for a few hours a day, fiddling its thumbs deciding to back up the clients or not. I have the same issue in V8

 

All of our clients run off a local NTP server, I really dont see them being 7 hours off.

What happens if you do either of the following:

 

1) change the schedule of an upcoming activity so that the date is right now?

 

2) Delete the past activities for one of the clients?

 

 

I find that #2 seems to put an activity in "ASAP" mode and usually kicks the backup off fairly quickly.

 

 

 

also -- how many proactive scripts do you have concurrently running?

 

(Also -- just to confirm -- you don't have the "pause proactive" button accidentally hit, do you?)
