Hi, I was hoping that the grooming bug had been fixed with this update, but I am still having problems.

I had great hopes that this update was going to fix the email bug.  But my hopes were dashed yet again.  I applied the update and getting:

 

 E-mail notification failed: error -511 ( unknown service message)
 

 

The really annoying thing is that the email notifications used to work, and broke in 8.1 and are still broken in 8.2.  Sending emails is pretty much a solved science. We run a simple local server on the same network as the retrospect server. Nothing fancy.

We have a pre-release version of 8.2 that patches the problem you are probably seeing. Please contact support@retrospect.com and we can send you download links.

Hi again.

Here we are 9 days later, and the groom worked perfectly.

Groomed 8.0 GB from Backup Set Backup Set D.

I wonder if version 8.2 does something differently with the catalog file compared with 8.1 ? - Meaning that grooms done after a rebuild in 8.2 will now work with no issue.

 

Anyhow, all looks good at the moment.

 

:)
