  1. for posterity, the given answer is correct - just verified through purchase and application of the Windows license (for Server client for Win, Retrospect v. 8), the Mac Server OS is now backing up properly. Thanks again
  2. Yes, it's OSX Server... thanks for the quick answer, that's what I assumed at first, but I just wasn't 100% sure if the licenses are added to the server or if they are client-type specific (I know I'm not using the right words here, but you understood exactly what I was asking anyway.)
  3. I am using a Windows machine as the Retrospect server, and need to add a Mac server as a backup client. Do I need to buy a license for "Retrospect Server Client 1-Pack, WIN 8" or "Retrospect Server Client 1-Pack, MAC 10"? I'm a little confused at the nomenclature.
  4. bump - I have the same issue; 4-core pegs at 25% CPU no matter how many execution slots are running
  5. Hey there, everyone - I tried searching for the answer to this before posting, but nothing came up that directly and exactly answered what I'm trying to get at, although there were some insightful comments here and there... I need to backup an Exchange system (both database and individual mailboxes) to a SAN, and I need to estimate the disk space requirements so I can allocate enough on the SAN for this purpose without wasting too much space. I need full backups daily, and the ability to restore from disk (at minimum!) every day for the last week and one day a week for the past month. Grooming will be enabled and set at the default Retrospect policy. Incidentally, we will snapshot to tape weekly, but that's beyond the scope of my question here. I understand the "set aside 2x the disk space for proactive backups" for files, but does the same apply for Exchange databases and mailboxes? Previous posts I found in this forum suggest that the disk usage for D2D by the Exchange agent may not scale the same way file backups do (probably something to do with the way Retrospect does matching) - and this uncertainty is exactly what I'd like to get an absolute answer for. In short, does matching apply to Exchange databases and mailboxes? My Exchange data is about 40GB, and grows at about 50MB per day... so using the proactive backup with a full backup daily assuming the needs stated above, do I need to set aside 160GB (2x 40GB for mailboxes plus 40GB for database) on the SAN for this data, or 880GB ( (7 daily + 4 weekly) x 80GB )?
  6. I am also seeing the same issue, page file fills up and won't go down
