9.5 Linux Client on Ubuntu 12.04.5


Recommended Posts

I've managed to install it, but testing the client on this one machine running Ubuntu 12.04.5 has proven problematic. Another 12.04 machine with the version 9 client has been fine.

 

Whenever the server connects to the client, it is reserved but fails to respond locking up the client.

 

This line gets placed in /var/log/retroclient.log

25 11:16:37: CreateNewProcess: execl() of /usr/local/retrospect/client/retropds.23 failed, errno = 2

and the relevant processes look like this, notice the defunct process

$ sudo service rcl status
Server "GTv001":
        Version 9.5.0.113
        reserved by CLGR2 for Preparing...
        back up according to normal schedule
        currently on
        readonly is off
        exclude is off
        1 connections, 1 authenticated
25 13:06:19: PmcClose: Handle 3 closed
$ ps -ef |grep retr

root     14068 11354  0 12:56 pts/1    00:00:00 [retroclient] <defunct>
$ pstree -p 11354
retroclient(11354)─┬─retroclient(14068)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11360)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11361)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11362)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11363)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11364)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11768)
                   ├─{retroclient}(11769)
                   └─{retroclient}(13555)
$ pstree -p 14068
retroclient(14068)

 

I've tried uninstalling the client using this blunt little script, clearing out the processes it left behind and reinstalling.
 #!/bin/sh

/usr/local/retrospect/client/retrocpl -stop
/usr/local/dantz/client/retrocpl -stop

rm -rf /usr/local/retrospect/
rm -rf /usr/local/dantz/
rm /etc/init.d/rcl
rm /var/log/retroclient.*

rm /usr/local/man/man1/retroc*
rm /usr/man/man1/retroc* 
rm /usr/share/info/retroclient.info.gz 

Any idea what can be done for this error?

Same here.

 

Installed Client 9.5.0.133 on an Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS Server

(Thanks for the adapted Installation Script, flickerfly)

 

I can connect to the Linux Client from my retrospect-PC (Windows 7 Prof.) once but trying to manage some settings, I get the 505 error (backup Client reserved)

 

root@elmo:/usr/local/retrospect/client# rcl status

Server "elmo":

Version 9.5.0.113

reserved by RETROSPECT-PC for Vorbereiten...

back up according to normal schedule

currently on

readonly is off

exclude is off

1 connections, 1 authenticated

09 11:51:05: PmcClose: Handle 3 closed

 

The Retrospect Log tells me:

 

09 11:28:57: Client version is 9.5.0.113

09 11:28:57: Multicast advertising on address: 10.10.10.10

09 11:31:41: CreateNewProcess: execl() of /usr/local/retrospect/client/retropds.23 failed, errno = 2

 

Any help is highly appreciated.
