8.1.184 Problem adding clients

Recommended Posts

Am still having problems adding clients, after installing 8.1.184:


"Add client" > Use "subnet broadcast" > two clients appear in list (an improvement) > I select one > "add" > password prompt > I enter client password > error message: "[color:red]An error occured (-501)[/color]"


No firewalls are active on either machine.


Retrospect Engine running on an Intel Mac Mini (OS X 10.5.7)

Console (8.1.184) running on the same machine.

Have also upadted client software.

To conclude this thread (hopefully):


Further tests seem to point to Retrospect Console having problems adding clients which were set up with single-character passwords. This resulted in a -501 error.


Client computers set up with long passwords were added succesfully by Retrospect Console.
