Error 504 Trouble Creating Service

Recommended Posts

I am running Retrospect Multi-Server 7.5.370 with Driver Update and HotFix version on a Windows XP Pro machine. It's attached to a Exabyte VXA-172 10 Tape SCSI Autoloader. Our backups have been working fine. We just recently decided to review some of the processes to make them better. One that we have tried to fix is the backup of a linux server. Before we were using SAMBA and mapping a drive to it on the Backup Server. We decided to give the Client software a try. So I installed retroclient-75_linux.rpm (Client Version 7.5.112) on our Fedora Core 4 Server. Everything started off great but about halfway into the backup it stopped with Code:

Trouble reading files, error -540 (trouble creating service)


Here is the log from the linux machine: Code:

I did some digging and I think that it died on a file that is constantly held open by a end user's computer via samba share. I understand that it probably can't copy a file that is open, but shouldn't it just skip it and move on?


Thank you for any help!!

Just as an update...


I've been reading through all the other posts on the forum related to the 504 error with linux clients, and they suggest to update to the latest version because it was a known bug that was fixed. But I have newer versions that what is noted in the posts, and I still have the problem.
