I just updated to 10.2 from the previous 10.x version and now the localhost keeps (somewhat rapidly) connecting and disconnecting. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks!

Try using the uninstall script inside system preferences and then reinstalling the 10.2 version.

 

It sounds like the Retrospect engine could be crashing over and over.  You can check the OS X console utility to confirm.  

 

If you previously experienced a major problem when grooming, Retrospect might try to groom over and over again, resulting in the behavior you are seeing.  If reinstalling Retrospect does not help, stop the Retrospect engine and then rename the catalog folder in library/application support/Retrospect to old catalogs and start the engine again.

Tried using the suggested uninstall script and reinstalling 10.2 suggestion - did not work.

 

Then tried the second suggestion (although I don't groom) - did not the work.

 

Still having the same problem.

 

Here's the reading from the console (which keeps repeating when I have the Retrospect app open)

Does the OS X console log have a crash reporter log for Retrospect?

 

Does the library/application support/Retrospect folder have an assert_log.utx file?

 

What happens if you stop the engine and remove the config80.dat and config80.bak files, then start the engine again?

No crash reporter log for Retrospect in the OS X console.

 

Yes, to assert_log.utx file.

 

Stopped engine, removed the config80.dat and config80.bak files, restarted the engine, config80 files recreated, opened Retrospect app, reentered Serial Number, and appears to be stable and working (except, of course, there are no (zero) Activities, Past Backups, Scripts, or Media Sets anymore). Guess than means I have to start over with the backups - not that big of a deal, unless you have another suggestion to get the old ones back and working.

 

Also, FYI, although I had the problem described above after updating to 10.2, it still performed a backup last night as normal.

You can always try and restore an old config file from a prior backup to see if that works for you.

bdunagan: as requested, I opened a support ticket and attached the assert_log.utx file, referencing this forum thread. Although the problem appears to have been solved using Mayoff's recommendations, please let me know what you find out. Thanks!
