error -505 (backup client reserved)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a newbie using Retrospect 9.


I have a Tandberg Data Ultrium 4 Storage Loader. It's connected to an Apple Xserve (10.5). I'm using Retrospect 9. I'm backing up the host server, one Windows Server, one 10.6 Xserve and another 10.5 Xserve.


I'm also trying to back up a second generation PowerPC Xserve running 10.4. Occasionally I get a backup, but usually I get the error message listed in the topic title.


Retrospect 9 sees the server when I access the Sources window. I reinstalled the PowerPC server's Retrospect client. That worked once. Could this be a networking issue even though the old Xserve is accessible on our LAN and has no trouble connecting to the Web.

-505 means that another backup server is currently backing up that client.


Or it means that the client thinks it is still running the last backup. The last backup was probably interrupted and not (properly) finished. Restarting the client computer always helps on our site.
