Carbuncle18 Posted February 22, 2004 Report Share Posted February 22, 2004 We've recently upgraded to 6.0, and after a lot of headaches with the install I ultimately decided to uninstall from all five clients, reinstall the clients, and then see where I was at. The uninstall (which I did from CD) solved my problem with three of the clients, but created a new problem with two of the clients, which is this: during the re-install with the two problematic clients, the installer *never* asks for a password by which to identify the client on the network. When I go over to the server side after the client install is complete and attempt to configure the clients, the clients are visible, but when I try to log them in, Retrospect asks me for a password. Since I never got to *set* the password in the first place on the client side, however, any password that I enter on the server side doesn't work (and believe me, I've tried every single password, past and present, that has ever been attached to these clients). So, first question: how do I get the client install to do what it's supposed to do, and what it did on the three other clients, which is to ask me for a password used to identify the client on the network? Second question (perhaps related): why are the two problematic clients showing up on the server side with weird names? (i.e., with computer names that aren't listed anywhere in Panther's System Preferences.) In both cases, the server seems to have "discovered' client names from a prior system install (Jaguar), calling each "PersonFirst PersonLastName's Computer" (which is the default that gets set up for Rendesvous, I believe). This is not what the computers are named now in System Prefs/Accounts, System Prefs/Sharing, or in Terminal, so I can't for the life of me figure out where Retrospect Server is getting this information from. Third question (perhaps also related): why, having paid for the full version of Retrospect Server and a five-pack of clients, does Retrospect Server tell me that I need to "upgrade to a more powerful license code" when I try to add clients by IP address? As far as I can tell, there is no more powerful license code. Thanks for any and all help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
