Problem with Retrospect Backup Version 6.1.126


Recommended Posts

I recently installed Mac OS X Tiger and Retrospect Backup Version 6.1.126. Everytime I try to do a backup to my SEAGATE DAT Tape Drive I keep getting this message half way during the backup processBad backup set header found (0x0fffff80 at 17,742,480) The message in parathese changes. Here is my system setup:

 

 

Mac OX 10.4.8 running on a Mac Dual 1 GHz PowerPC G4 2 MB L3 cache per processor Memory 1.5 GB SDRAM running Retrospect Backup Version 6.1.126

 

My Seagate Drive:

SCSI Parallel Domain 65536:

Initiator Identifier: 7

SEAGATE DAT 06240-XXX:

Manufacturer: SEAGATE

Model: DAT 06240-XXX

Revision: 8160

SCSI Target Identifier: 1

SCSI Logical Unit Identifier: 0

 

I have tried switching media, creating new backup sets, etc... but nothing seems to be working. It ran perfectly before I installed Tiger 10.4. Do I need to upgrade Retrospect? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

boy, that's an old drive.

 

What SCSI card are you using? Not all SCSI cards are supported under 10.4.x - many manufacturers (e.g., Adaptec) abandoned the SCSI market for Mac. Pretty much the only SCSI cards that are really supported by anyone on the Mac (EMC included) are those from ATTO.

Apple System Profiler should say. Here's an excerpt from our Apple System Profiler report for our Xserve G5, which has an Apple Hardware RAID card (rebranded LSI Logic Megaraid card) and an ATTO UL4D (dual-channel SCSI):
