I've managed to install it, but testing the client on this one machine running Ubuntu 12.04.5 has proven problematic. Another 12.04 machine with the version 9 client has been fine.

 

Whenever the server connects to the client, it is reserved but fails to respond locking up the client.

 

This line gets placed in /var/log/retroclient.log

25 11:16:37: CreateNewProcess: execl() of /usr/local/retrospect/client/retropds.23 failed, errno = 2

and the relevant processes look like this, notice the defunct process

$ sudo service rcl status
Server "GTv001":
        Version 9.5.0.113
        reserved by CLGR2 for Preparing...
        back up according to normal schedule
        currently on
        readonly is off
        exclude is off
        1 connections, 1 authenticated

                   ├─{retroclient}(11361)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11362)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11363)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11364)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11768)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11769)
                   └─{retroclient}(13555)
$ pstree -p 14068
retroclient(14068)

 

I've tried uninstalling the client using this blunt little script, clearing out the processes it left behind and reinstalling.
 #!/bin/sh

/usr/local/retrospect/client/retrocpl -stop
/usr/local/dantz/client/retrocpl -stop

rm -rf /usr/local/retrospect/
rm -rf /usr/local/dantz/
rm /etc/init.d/rcl
rm /var/log/retroclient.*

rm /usr/local/man/man1/retroc*
rm /usr/man/man1/retroc* 
rm /usr/share/info/retroclient.info.gz 

Any idea what can be done for this error?

Same here.

 

Installed Client 9.5.0.133 on an Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS Server

(Thanks for the adapted Installation Script, flickerfly)

 

I can connect to the Linux Client from my retrospect-PC (Windows 7 Prof.) once but trying to manage some settings, I get the 505 error (backup Client reserved)

 

root@elmo:/usr/local/retrospect/client# rcl status

Server "elmo":

Version 9.5.0.113

reserved by RETROSPECT-PC for Vorbereiten...

back up according to normal schedule

currently on

readonly is off

exclude is off

1 connections, 1 authenticated

09 11:51:05: PmcClose: Handle 3 closed

 

The Retrospect Log tells me:

 

09 11:28:57: Client version is 9.5.0.113

09 11:28:57: Multicast advertising on address: 10.10.10.10

09 11:31:41: CreateNewProcess: execl() of /usr/local/retrospect/client/retropds.23 failed, errno = 2

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

It's me again.

 

I just figured out that I forgot to install "libc6-i386"

 

After installing it, everything runs smoothly..
