"Client is Reserved"

Recommended Posts

What is this "Client is Reserved" stuff? Clients keep going into this state where they can't be backed up (and there's no way to tell until it has failed and you see it in the log.) What's it gonna take to clear this error and get the machine backed up again? I think I managed it once by completely uninstalling the client and reinstalling it. That will be a lot of fun on a daily basis. Possibly also worked to restart both the server and client, but it would be helpful to find a method that was not so undesirable.

The client thinks it is in use by another server. How many servers do you have?

 

In our case, simply restarting the client resolves the problem.

We only have one server. I suspect the client is getting hung when the server crashes, which has been happening frequently since the last update.

Your suspicion is correct. The client thinks it is connected to the old "instance" of the server.

 

So your problem is really the server crashes.

 

 

Try a safe boot, then boot normally before trying again.

If that doesn't help, you need to contact Retrospect support. (This is just a user-to-user forum.)

More often than not one gets more useful information from users than from support, with less grueling time-wasting. And, one can hope that someone from the inside is at least glancing at the mounting list of problems.
