Linux client wants activation code

Recommended Posts

I have a Mac Server running version 6.1.126 and it is working fine. I just installed the new client 7.6 on a new RHEL 5.2 installation and when I try to connect it with my Server it asks for an activations code, what does it mean activation code. I have not used activation codes for years with my retrospect server. What does it want, where do I find it and how do I make it work?

6.1.126 is not compatible with the 7.6 client. You must update the backup server to the latest version.

Then why did they post it in the downloads with the Server 6.1.126 files? where can I find the that will work with 6.1.126. How can I remove this one, when I try to do an rpm -e the Linux acts as if it is not installed????

Hello,

 

I have a similar Situation to above but have not been able to fix.

 

I have two retrospect servers running 6.1.138 for Mac on a Tiger Server 10.4.11 backing up around 50 clients both PC and Mac.

 

I have installed a Retrospect Client for Red Hat Linux 7.6.100 (.rpm) which is listed for Software version 6.1 on a redhat box and keep getting "Invalid Activator Code. Check your list and try again. I have never had any trouble adding any other clients.

 

Is the download link to the wrong version?

when I test the connection connection prior to adding, it states version 7.6.100 should it say 6.1.X?

 

Thanks for any help in advance
