Retrospect 7.5 Client - Error -505 (backup client reserved)


Recommended Posts

Retrospect Professional 7.5.370 (the latest update) installed on Vista.


It would appear the problem persits now on both 7.0.107 and 7.5.116 client WinXP SP2 installations - this may suggest it's not a client problem?


Using the trick of switching the client 'off' [apply], 'on' [apply] seems to occaisionally improve matters but it cannot be relied upon - it may work once and then reserve the volume again.

Very disapointed about Emc Support.

I have tried to call them all this morning, but the answer machine always said that they cannot respond yet cause they are busy...

I have 7 customers that have buy their software more then 1000€ and they cannot do their backup now...

Hoping EMC will do a hotfix quickly...

I have had to revert my Retrospect Clients to 7.0.107 from the update to 7.5.116 as I am getting the 505 Error (backup client reserved) on more than one installation.


Does anyone have any ideas?



Check the retclient.dat file under C:\Windows\ on the client machine. I noticed that for some reasons C:\ was in this file and then the server cannot connect to the client and you will get the 505 error.
