Hi,

 

I use Retrospect Backup 6.1.126 on macosx 10.3.9 to backup about 30 macosx clients.

 

Is there a way to change the ip of a client in the client database ?

How to use retrospect if my clients ip is dynamic (eg delivered by a dhcp server) ?

 

Regards,

Bulbab

Dave is right, of course. However, you may have some specifics of your network infrastructure (e.g., client on a different subnet from Retrospect server) that causes a need to add by IP.

 

One solution is to set up your DHCP server for static DHCP mapping based on MAC address, such that the same IP is always handed out by DHCP to a given machine.

Hi,

 

The solution to set up our DHCP server for static DHCP mapping based on MAC address is what we did, but someone changed some mapping (I don't know why and why he/she didn't tell anything) and now I would like to update the client database the new ip values for those clients.

 

I can create new clients for the changed ips, but I am trying to find a "cleaner" way to go.

 

regards,

Bulbab
