Retro 10.0.1 very buggy

Recommended Posts

Mac OS X 10.6.8 server, Mac Pro 8 core 2.8 ghz, 16 GB RAM, ATTO H680 SAS card, HP LTO-5 tape drive, Retro 10.0.1 server and clients


Having same problems on multiple servers:


Retro randomly loses communication with clients every few days, and does NOT report that error via email


Retro says "media set is in use" when it isn't - have to repair the media set (a disk) and then it runs again - again no error email. Seems to be better if I leave the console running on the server itself.


RetroISA causing kernel panic on clients and must be disabled.


I have reported this previously and gotten NO replies.

Retrospect 10.1 is basically unusable with clients. They randomly disappear, and the server has to be restarted, or sometimes they have to be deleted and re-added back as sources. In addition, when these errors occur, retro is not send notification emails, even though the email test function works and I get those emails. It also randomly says "media set is in use" when it isn't. The only fix for that is to repair the media set, apparently.


I have these problems across three servers and many clients so it is not a random bug. How do people live with this junk?


I didn't buy the support package so no doubt they will charge me for support.


This is shameful.
