  1. My scheduled backup asks for a new tape member before the first member is full. I am using 2 backup sets alternating daily, Normal backup. Retrospect Server is running on an NT4 server and backing up itself and a Clients container consisting of 2 AppleShare servers on a different subnet. The tape drive is a Sony SDT-10000 DDS-4 and claims hardware compression capability. Both backup sets request a second member at anywhere from 10gb to 22gb. All tape media is new 20/40gb Fuji. Your KnowledgeBase says I can expect less than the claimed capacity amount for a variety of reasons and that hardware compression could help. 50% less than the stated uncompressed media capacity seems excessive.
  2. I have a problem installing Retrospect Client 4.3 on a Mac server. (Backup Server is an NTServer on a different subnet) System specs: G4 450 mhz.server 256mb RAM OS 9.1 ASIP 6.3.3 Macintosh Manager Server 1.2.2 Symptoms:(on restart after installing) Install disables Mac Manager Server extension Resets the ASIP Administrator(owner) password to blank Disables the Multiple User account in ASIP Users & Groups created by MacManager Breaks the Mac Manager Sharepoint Deletes the Forced Preferences files in the Mac Manager Sharepoint Your recommendation to restart daily after backup hangs one machine at startup (I implemented your recommendations from an earlier post regarding ASIP freezes) This is an amalgam of events that occurred in two installs on identical systems. The second install had only OS 9.1 base extensions on and that was the install I lost the Forced Preferences. If I pull the 4.3 Client extension and control panel out everything can be reset but backup doesn't work too well. Ten more installs to go and I'm leery. These are school systems already in use so I'd like to avoid the shotgun method (unless I find a school that will volunteer). I can't find anything about Mac Manager on the web site or in the documentation so I'm really looking forward to any help.
