Client no longer shows External Drives as availbale

Recommended Posts

My Retrospect Client suddenly refuses to give access to the External Drives

It says they are offline ... these drives are not*, the Mac OSX High Sierra system is fine using them for all other activities.

Server Was connecting to this client previously [6 days ago] 100% OK and backups from external drives worked fine.
Only now Retrospect Client? refuses to allow access now and reports them offline.
They are
not*

 OSX High Sierra Retrospect Client

OSX Catalina Retrospect Server

Latest version of Retrospect 16.5.x

If Retrospect is having trouble seeing Macintosh Client volumes, make sure you are running the 16.6 version and not 16.5.1.

The explanation for the head of Retrospect Tech Support's comment, which turns out to not be applicable to the OP's problem, is in the P.P.S. of this post in the corresponding Mac 9+ Forum thread which the OP subsequently created.  A subsequent post in that thread shows that the OP solved his/her problem, which appears to have been caused by administrator error—possibly resulting from confusion shown by the misleading use of the red-markup terms "Server" and "Client" in the OP's screenshots—which I attempted to explain in a later post in that thread.
