  1. Update: Mounted the XP in a Mac via NTFS-3G and accessed the files: again an eof error. Mounted it in Linux Mint and could copy them to the desktop, deleted the originals, and copied the copies to the original location. Now Retrospect has backed them up without complaint. Looks like everything is OK, but I am still a bit worried...
  2. Hello, Can you help me with the following problem: I get an end of file error ("-39") when backing up an xp partition through a Mac client. It's always the files perfc007.dat, perfc009.dat, perfh007.dat, and perfh009.dat. Running chkdsk on xp before retrying from the Mac didn't help. Virus scans found nothing (it's a freshly installed XP). Backup Machine: MacOS 10.5.8; Retrospect 6.1.230 with driver 6.1.16.100 Client Machine: MacOS 1.6.7; Retrospect Client 6.2.234. Is there a way to fix that? If not, are these files vital for XP? I understand they have to do with some performance measuring tool that I could survive without. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
  3. Hello, Sorry for reposting this here, but the other forum seems not to be read by too many people.. I need to make a client running on Linux Mint remember the first access password between reboots. A check with "/usr/local/dantz/client/rcl status" returns "Retrospect client is not running". But "/usr/local/dantz/client/rcl start" exists in my "/etc/rc.local" file (last line before "exit 0", not commented out). Runing that command manually returns "First access password not set, use retroclient -setpass". After setting the password, backup works fine, but after every reboot it needs to be set again. The password had been set during install as well as manually several times. I tried a short one with only 9 letters (no numbers, umlauts, etc) -- no luck. A run of "/usr/local/dantz/client/rpm-post-install.sh" didn't fix it either. Retrospect client is v 7.6.100, runs on Linux Mint 9, Kernel 2.6.32-23-generic, GNOME 2.30.2 Now I am lost as to what to do to make this password stick. Being new to Linux, I might just overlook something very basic? Thanks for reading, d

  5. Ah, thanks for your explanations. I figured it had to do with Retrospect's own files and did some extended voodoo: ran uninstall from all installer versions in all languages that might have been installed on this particular machine, keeping all prefs etc, then reinstalled. A small test backup ran OK. BTW, the repaired catalog was needed because of a power out while it was in use for backup. Again, thanks for your explanations, I will keep them for reference. d.
  6. Hello, What is wrong with my Retrospect? During a manually started script backup, I got a message about a failed consistency check with error number "elem.c-928" and the script stopped. It was a normal Backup of the boot disk to a file on an external disk. Log says ... reading of file "..." not possible, error -43 ... ... Internal consistency check failed ... check at "elem.c-928" Software Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L30) // Darwin 9.8.0 Retrospect Version: 6.1.230 Retrospect Driver Update, version 6.1.16.100 Hardware: PowerBook G4 17", PPC, 1.5 GHz, 2GB Backup to Seagate FreeAgent, directly connected through FireWire 800. Before Backup I had rebuilt the backup file and rebooted. Before that, backing up an OSX client to a different file on the same FW disk ran OK. All help will be greatly appreciated. d.
  7. Thank you for the fast reply! Sorry for answering so late, couldn't get to my mac earlier. It works fine now. Don't know how I came to think I had the latest Client update... d
  8. Hello, Please help! My Retrospect Client installs without complaining, but when I try to add it to the clients database it refuses the password and returns error 507. Testing its IP recognized the client with its correct name. Client: 6.1.130 on Mac OS 10.5.7 Intel. Retrospect: 6.1.230 on Mac OS 10.5.7 PPC. Both machines connect OK (afp, vnc in both directions) via Ethernet/Router. Both firewalls were set to allow all incoming. Observations: - Installing the client created a Firewall entry for ODSAgent (allow incoming) on the PPC, but not on the Intel machine. - Running Retrospect on the Intel displays the client without even testing, but not on the PPC machine. - The password of the PPC client is not accepted (error 507) on the Intel Retrospect either. How can I fix that? Thanx in advance. D
