thallsted Posted March 20, 2015 Report Share Posted March 20, 2015 I just updated to v12 mac server and v10 win client and can't get the server to recognize the client. Prior to the update the client was being backed up regularly, except for network related errors which occurred for no apparent reason and were typically resolved by rebooting one or both machines. This, and a long time to create a snapshot were the main reason I decided to become an early-adapter of v12, something I rarely do. I installed the client by copying the public key file into the public key folder in the instal folder, copying the install folder to the client and running the setup/install. I received a warning about the server not being able to see the client if the firewall was on etc and clicked Allow so the server could see the client. On the server/console, when I select the machine in Sources and click Refresh the "Source unavailable or in use." error occurs. If I dismiss that and click Locate button on the Sources toolbar and choose Multicast, the machine appears after 40 secs or so. When I select it and click the Locate button on the Locate window I receive an "Enter password for this source" with an unenterable password field and below that in red it says "No public key found on client." If, on the Locate window, I try to Locate Source Directly or Test Address, using either the wireless IP, hard-wired IP or machine name it can't find the machine. But the machine is available in my Finder window on the sidebar under Shared, which is how I transferred the install file to it. From the sources list, with the machine selected if I try the Update button I end up with "Source Unavailable or in use." During this the client had the Retro control panel open. The status was "Ready for retrospect Login." After closing this window and retrying the above the same errors occurred. I have restarted both machines but that did't help. Any suggestions?
