  1. Hi, Just a quick guestion. I have read through the requirements of Retrospect backing up an Exchangeserver. But I can´t find out if the Retrospect server needs to be in the same domain as the exchangeserver or can the Retrospecterver be outside the domain and only have network access to it ?? Thanks in advanced! /GiZmo
  2. Hmm, I´m looking för exclision ion the client but i Cant find wher they are... And I dint think that the problem i there, se my previus post....
  3. I tried to rename the config files and set it up fresh, 2 of 4 folders that is selected had their files backed up, the other 2 "no files need to be copied", i put 1 new file in each of the 4 folders, and ran the bacjkup again, all 4 came back with " no files need to be copied" This is really frustrating... to rename the condig files was restrospect supports suggestion...
  4. I have another retrospect server version 7.7, i tried to backup this client from there but at I get the same thing, No files need to be copied.
  5. Thanks, I have started a support ticket to. Hope they have a solutions. I tried here also, mayby anyone have any suggestion that I haven´t tried yet .... //Maria
  6. Hi, I resently found out that one of our backup sets didn´t show any used space, I found that odd, I started looking around and i saw that no files have been backed up for weeks! No errors or warnings in the history. Everything has looked just fine, no indication what so ever that there has been problems with the backupset. I started a clean new backup to the klient, new bakcupset, new script etc etc. And the klient is restarted. There are 4 folders that we backup, the first one after a clean start was backed up properly but the other 3 folder had the same "no files need to be copied" And when I ran a new backup all 4 folders gave the same "no files need.....". In the backup script I select "All Files", and when I check Selector all the files are beeing counted, but when the backup runs no file is backed up. Any idéas ? Greatful for a quick response! //Maria
  7. We have a Multi server 8.5.0 and I need to buy a open file licens, anyone know if I OpenFile 9.0 i compatible with multiserver 8.5 ?? or do I have to upgrade the whole server to 9.0 ?? Thanks in advanced ! //Maria
  8. Not sure what u mean. The backup method is a normal file backup. Backupset keeps 14 backups. The customer do not want to modify their script. So my question is how I in "Manage script\Selection" so that only the latest of the files are backed up.
  9. On the database server there is a job running that zippes all the new files and copies them to the d:\backup location and files older then 3 days are deletet, And we are backing up the d:\backup location but the customer only wants that we backup the latest file not all 3 copies. They pay per GB and do not want to pay for tripple amount of GB.
  10. We take backup on a customers d:\backup. In to this D:\backup the customer has a script that moves all database files to this area and is saved for 3 Days. So there is always 3 copys of every database in this location ex database1 created 2013-11-07 database1 created 2013-11-06 database1 created 2013-11-05 The customer only wants us to backup the last file every day. So in this example only database1 that is created 2013-11-07. I have tried numerous different approaches in under script/selecting. Selecting for ex include create date = today, exclude create date is Before 1 day prior to today The same but whith modiy date, and I tried selecting one line for each day I wanted to exclude. But all 3 files are always backed up. Any idéas ?? Thanks!
  11. But the thing is when I look at other backupsets that we groom after 14 Days (backups) they to have rdb files from when the backupset first was created and run.
  12. This is what I have under More Snapshots
  13. This it what it Lookes like. Only 3 backups are shown.
  14. When I click add, I only see one, when I start a restore i can only choose from 3 backups 2/10, 3/10, 4/10. So I can't restore older then 3 backups. It is only 2 files that is backed up. and they change every day. So why is the rdb files filling up and requiring so much space?, it should only need 135GB, not 300 and growing.
  15. But the gooming runs every 3 Days. We want to save 3 backups and it only shows 3 backups when I look in the Snapshotstab, BUT when I look in the backupfolder the rdb files are all there from the first backup was taken.
  16. When I check the numbers of backups it is correct, 3 Days. But why is there .rdb files from when the job was created (a couple of weeks ago), when I check other jobs its the same, grooming works fine and leveas only tha numbers of backups that I have choosen. But all of them has .rdb files from when the backupset was created. So they all need more backupspace then one would think. Like in this case I thought that 150GB would be enough but it is just going to grow every day even if the grooming does its job. I understand tha the first backup i the fullbackup then it is just incremental but when we sell to customers they pay for the diskspace used, and it should not be more then in this example 3*45=135GB,
  17. Hi, I have a job running that backups a file that is 45GB and we groom after 3 Days. So one would think that the disk needed would be 45*3=135GB. The grooming is working fine but why is the .rdb files remaining and growing ? Insted of 135gb it is recuiring at the time 350GB, and growing. Thanks! //MJ
  18. okej, inga rapporter eller scripts som kan få fram det ?
  19. Du som verkar ha super koll på retron. vet du om det går att få fram rapport som talar om hur mycket disk i procent som används utav det man satt tillgängligt ?
  20. Hej igen, Lite uppföljningsfråga på ärendet. Vi har kört ett tag nu med daglig, vecko och månadsbackup på den här kunden. Dock ser jag att månads backupen växer något ofantligt så jag kollade lite hur det ser ut och det är ju så att den dagliga transferera till veckobackupen 1 ggr/v, då flyttar den allt som tagits de sista 7 dagarna, sen till månads backuperna så flyttas ju all veckobackupsdata 1ggr/mån, blir ju jätte mycket data. Går det inte på nåt sätt att ställa in att man tar en fullbackup /mån o sparar 12ggr ?? Har kollat runt men får inte till det. Känns lite ohållbart att man flyttar all daglig backup till månadsbackupen, kund vil egentligen bara ha EN full backup /mån inte all förändringsdata med. Tacksam för hjälp. /Maria
  21. Hi folks, We are thinking of upgrading our 7.7, Any suggestions on which version to upgrade to 8, 8.1, 8.2 ? Can we upgrade from 7.7 to 8.1 straight or do we need to install another version in between ? Is there any "How to's..." on upgrading ? Thanks! /Maria
  22. Hi, I have looked around but I can´t find any info. I´m wondering if the new version of Retrospect allows backup sets to automatic increse diskspace when they run out of space (after a groom hase been done ofcourse) ?? And, do you still have to make a separate groom job that deletes older data then for ex 14 restore points ? Thanks in advance! //Maria
