jtburgess replied to jtburgess's topic in Retrospect 6: Desktop, Workgroup and Server for Mac OS XSorry I was imprecise - by active I meant the radio button ON was lit. And when I check it again later, the OFF button is lit. I have always had the root login enabled. Both accounts I mentioned are administrators. Yes the machine often goes to sleep, and since I use it when travelling, wake-from-sleep is password protected. I install retrospect in a subdirectory, as follows: $ ls -l '/Applications/Retrospect 6.1/' -rwxr-xr-x 1 jburgess staff 30597 Sep 20 2005 Read Me-Retrospect.htm drwxrwxr-x 4 jburgess staff 136 Jul 29 2006 Retrospect drwxrwxr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jul 29 2006 Retrospect Client.app I'll try editing the Startup shell as suggested. That should do it. It does have a hard-coded path to /Applications (%^&*). Thanks in advance!
jtburgess posted a topic in Retrospect 6: Desktop, Workgroup and Server for Mac OS XI have a powerbook running OS 10.4.8, and retrospect client 6.1.130. I start the client and it says it is NOT active. I activate it, and it works fine for awhile ... that is, My server automatically backs it up (set to occur every 3 days). Three days later I when check the server it says the client is not visible on the network and so the next automatic backup fails. I check the client, and I'm back to square 1 - it has somehow deactivated itself. Has anyone else seen anything similar to this? I use 2 logins on this computer (one for personal, one for business). Could that affect Retrospect? Any other ideas what might cause the client to become "inactive" without human intervention??
