didn't compare error

Recommended Posts

Hello - New to the forum & product

I have Server 2012R2

Retrospect 10.5.0.110

I am getting errors during each backup similar to the following:

 

File "C:\Windows]System32\winevt\logs\DFS Replication.evtx"; didn't compare

I'm also getting "different creation date/time" errors

 

If someone could help by pointing me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

File "C:\Windows]System32\winevt\logs\DFS Replication.evtx"; didn't compare

 

It is a log file. It has changed between the time it was backed up and the time it was compared. It is normal for log files to change at any time. Not to worry.

Probably a temporary file that has been deleted and recreated in the same time period. (The one I mentioned above).

 

For more definitive answer, please post excerpt from the log.

How about some of these errors?

How might I correct these?

 

Thanks in advance.

The first errors can be corrected by either:

1) Shut down the MS SQL database prior to backup.

2) Buy the Microsoft SQL Server Agent add-on.

 

The last error is due to insufficient permissions.

The Retrospect user must be a member of certain groups.

Lennart's answer is more likely correct (I have no experience with Microsoft SQL Server).

 

Do you have the 'Open File Backup' add-on?

 

Without this add-on Retrospect cannot backup files that are actively open in another application – in this case presumably Microsoft SQL Server. (I think this add-on will also allow Retrospect to access the files in the 'F:\System Volume Information' folder.)
