RogerC Posted April 5, 2002 Report Share Posted April 5, 2002 Using Retro 4.3 on a Mac with OS 9. Has been backing up successfully (for over a year) from another Mac running AppleShare 6.x on OS 9 using TCP/IP. Began to see backup failures due to error 515 (Piton protocol violations) with various notes about bad file names. Restarting the client Mac cleared up everything -- the first time. The next time around, this method of restarting the client did not work -- except it was not immediately apparent since there were no error messages or reports of unsuccessful backups. While doing unrelated tasks on the Retro Mac, I noticed that the 'problem' client was not getting backed up and that there was no error since there had been no attempt to do a backup -- the client appeared to be inactive, i.e. the client is listed in the client database, but the item is dimmed out. The problem client DOES NOT appear at all in the Clients on Network window! If you try to do a client configuration you get an error about the client not being visible on the network or 'Cannot connect with client.' Client software is current version. The client software IS loading and is turned 'on' and is in 'Ready' status. TCP/IP is functioning on both machines. Pinging both the client and the Retorspect Mac is successful. No problems accessing the client from various other Macs on the network (via AppleShare IP) Several other clients are being backed up with no problems at all. What can we do to get this problem client back and backed up? Thanks in advance for any suggestions for this Retrospect novice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
