OS X client not shutting down


Recommended Posts

Using Retrospect 6 (latest version) on an OS X server (10.3.4), on a network of OS 9 clients and one OS X (10.3.4 also), the backup script runs normally with the OS 9 clients, with the clients shutting down as programmed in the script. The OS X client is never shutting down, and is often reported as being unavailable. I have tried to execute the backup script with the OS X client running normally, with applications running; without any applications running but the user still logged on; and without any user logged on. In all 3 situations the client is often reported as being unavailable.

Any clues, solutions, workarounds?

Is this a known problem? confused.gif

Easy answer first; the Retrospect OS X Client does not support shutting down a Client after Execution. As the window of the script option says "Shut down when done completes deferred shutdown for Mac OS backup clients..." But there is no deferred shutdown option for OS X Clients (perhaps because the operating system does not support it, given the true multi-user nature of the system). The text of the window should make this clear (as Dantz has done with some of the other OS X vs. OS 9 issues in Retrospect).

 

You need to provide more information regarding the issue of client availability. Just a passing mention is not enough.
