Problem with full execution on duplicate

Recommended Posts

I am using Retrospect to duplicate my HD onto an external firewire - and everything has worked. This second drive is a new LaCie 160 gig drive. I have been trying to back up the main drive to another older LaCie firewire for my other computer and it executes till the last 3 files - with the following log:



+ Executing Immediate Duplicate at 9/11/2003 10:24 AM

Warning: volume Backup Drive has the Ignore ownership setting enabled.

I have checked "ignore ownership" on both firewire drives but in this second instance I can not get a full execution. Can anyone help??? confused.gif

- First, confirm that everything you're doing is local; nothing is being done over any sort of network (I ask because of the word "server" in the error)


- Next, confirm that "Ignore Permissions" is NOT set on the destination drive; the log portion you included shows that it is set, which will prevent you from getting a bootable drive.


As long as Retrospect is running as root, it should have no problem reading files in /var/run/


There are also other files in that directory with the same permissions, so a program unable to read netinfo_pid would also be unable to read files such as niconfig_local.xml or lookupd.pid


- Use the ProcessViewer application to confirm that Retro is running as the root user.
