Clients not registering back up

Recommended Posts

We are backing up three macs with retrospect (two being clients).


Recently we changed the configuration of the back up and created a whole new one.


Since this time the clents have not been registering as being backed up, whether they have or have not. So we are plagued with a warning that we have not been backed up since early May.


How can we resolve this?

We chose to change the machine from which the back ups were being controlled. This meant that one machine had a new Client installed on it. There was no change to the other.


The Client that was installed afresh contains no history. The Client that was already installed continues to say that its last back up was on May 9th.

hi craig,


honestly it sounds like you are not backing up through the Client. could you be backing up through File Sharing? there would be no history, and you would get that message (the Retrospect Client does not interact w/ OS File Sharing) exactly as you describe.
