Re: trospect 8.1 can't see any clients

Recommended Posts

We have seen this issue on most of our installations. The client backups are skipped and searching for the clients fails when in the Retrospect 8 console.


Stopping and starting has worked on some of the time, but then the problem re-occurs and we stop seeing the client systems again. We are a VAR and have worked with Retrospect for many years but we'll have to go with another product if this problem cannot be resolved.


This is a major issue because we cannot rely on the client systems being backed up. Local volumes work fine.

Are the clients at the login screen when they can't be seen by the engine?


I've had this problem *rarely* -- but I've seen that behavior. Once the clients log in, then they are seen by the engine (or if the clients reboot -- even if they reboot to the login screen and stay there -- that seems to fix the problem.)


It's not 100% reproducible for me, though, so it's hard to debug why the client is losing the ability to be seen when a user logs out...
