Mac OSX 10.8 is now out -- comments from Retrospect on compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Is there an official statement on this? Is the current 9.0.2 build (client and server) compatible with ML?

I look forward to hearing others' experiences with Retrospect 9.0.2 and Mountain Lion before I take the plunge. :)

Hopefully Retrospect Inc. will update Retrospect to obviate the need to change security prefs. Is this a certificate issue with Gatekeeper?

Gatekeeper requires a new certificate, so all software developers who don't use the App store will need to release a new version with a new certificate. At least that is my understanding. We will add a new certificate in our next release.

I upgraded to Mountain Lion and now the Retrospect Client 9.0.2 (102) will not turn on. Even changed the Security preferences and tried reloading the client.

Try to uninstall the re-install the Retrospect Client. You may also need to try to delete the retroclient.state file in library preferences.

I have not seen this problem in the machines I've upgraded. If the client was on prior to the upgrade, it's been on after the upgrade finished...

And, FWIW -- I did not have to modify GateKeeper settings to launch the 9.0.2 Console on my engine computer --it is currently set to "Mac App Store and identified developers".

 

Which goes against what your KB article says. Am I missing something?

Gatekeeper only applies to newly downloaded applications (technically, to applications which still have the quarantine attribute). So if you had Retrospect installed before Mountain Lion, and had run it at least once, you don’t need to change Gatekeeper settings.

 

Actually, you probably could just control-click and choose “Open” — that will bypass Gatekeeper (after a confirmation dialog) without having to change the preference.

Thanks, I did this and now it seems to be working again.

So, I bounced my engine machine to 10.8. From what I can tell, all my backups -- including the few clients I updated to 10.8 -- are working. Seems pretty painless so far...

Hi, there's a possibility that proactive backups will revert to the schedule in the script. I quite often re-shedule client backups to the early hours of the morning but after a system re-boot the schedules are reset to the last time the client was backed up plus the scripts 'backup sources every' setting.
