"Network communication failed" when adding XP Pro client


Recommended Posts

Hai Forumreaders,


The hardware setup is; OSX G5 Server with Retrospect "SERVER" ver. 6.0.193. (upgraded from 5.0).

The client i want to add is; Windows XP Pro SP1 with Retrospect Client Software version 6.5.132.


I've tested the backup client in an earlier (stage last week; see LOGFILE) and after installing additional software can't add the client to my daily backup anymore!?

12/9/2004 12:07:38 AM: Execution completed successfully.

Completed: 68 files, 22.6 MB

Performance: 75.2 MB/minute

Duration: 00:00:20 (00:00:02 idle/loading/preparing)

Although the client is still broadcasted and responding in the "Configure" tab i've got a problem adding this network client and get an error in the third tab (menu) "Volumes"; "Network communication failed".

The "test client" also found this client after login with password; by Adress, Name, and Version.


I have deactivated the firewall on the XP client but it don't solves this problem.

An other UTP cable solves nothing.


Can anybody give me a clue?

Thanks in advantage!

Finally it works! grin.gif


On the Xp client a "SYSTEM" user must be added by share and security.

In the tab; "Safety" (with all privileges turned on).

Now the (NTFS) partitions and subvolumes are accessable and visible by adding.


Let's wait for the report...


Merry Christmas.

Jan Willem.
