    Open File Backup: -1019

    I've updated to the current version and it still has not resolved the Open File Backup -1019 error messages. Please give me some suggestions on how to get the software working.

    Curiously, I purchased OFB in the same manner as you--bought both products, and then received upgrade codes for both. I didn't attempt to use OFB with version 6.0 of the software, so I don't know if it was functional or not. I'm also receiving my error when backing up local drives to a local tape drive, though my OS is plain W2K server, not Advanced. I'm receiving a different OFB error (-1019), though, so I doubt the license codes used have any affect.

    Open File Backup: -1019

    Sorry--I meant it's running as the 'default': Local System Account. I tried running as administrator, but it had no effect. Here's my log snippets: + Normal backup using Daily Backup--Even Weeks at 5/22/2003 12:59 AM (Execution unit 1) To Backup Set EvenTapeSet...

The hardware (should it matter) is a Dell Poweredge 2650. Discs are all SCSI volumes. There's this 'Storage Manager' software Dell ships on these systems to manage the arrays--this wouldn't be causing a problem, right? I guess I'm not quite sure what the 'open file backup' option in Restrospect does in order to function. While I'm listing my problems with Retrospect, it also appears that the 'Execution Performance Threshold' doesn't have the expected behavior: You'd think it would keep going if a client dropped below the threshold set, but instead the entire backup operation aborts if one client drops below that threshold.
  4. I have yet to get Open File Backup working on a new install of 6.5, SBS. My error is: error -1019 (not enough resources) Such a descriptive error message! I was incapable of finding an online resource which listed what these error codes mean--wouldn't such a thing be handy, since the point of error codes is to tell the user what went wrong? I've tried the suggestions posted on the forum for other users to get OFB working, to no avail. Logged in as administrator, Launcher started as administrator. (And, a clarification--is OFB simply for backing up the localhost? Can the OFB functionality not be extended to client machines?)
