turn on and off though command line?

Recommended Posts

We have 2 client machines that stuck in "Client in reserved", maybe it is because the Retrospect server crash while doing the backup. one is easy to fix by turn off and on the client retrospect.

but the other one is running in Xserve which require command line to do this


any know the application name for retrospect and what is the command line to turn off and turn back on the retrospect client?


Thank you

hi file,


/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/killall pitond


will kill the client.


/usr/bin/sudo "/Applications/Retrospect Client.app/Contents/Resources/pitond" >/dev/null 2>&1 &


will start it up again. i recommend at least a 2 second delay between the 2 commands (in the order i typed them).
