problem backing up AIX server via PC Maclan

Hi

 

Got a win xp with Retrospect 6.5.336 Multi Server.

I have a few Sun solaris server, some win2k servers, os-x server and one AIX server.

 

The AIX server runs Helios Ethershare, and because a backup client does not exist for this platform, I had to install PC Maclan 9 on the backup server.

 

The problem is that I get a lot of error -1020, and it seems the errors are related to the fact that some of the files doesn't contain a resource fork.

 

Anybody got some suggestions to fixing it, or maybe a workaround.

 

kind regards

Hi

 

I'm not sure if this will work but...

 

Try mounting the AIX server on one of your macs, then backup the volume as a volume on that mac.

 

Error 1020 indicates a file is in use and can't be accessed. Are you getting any other errors as well?

 

Thanks

Hi Nate

 

I had a mac doing backup of the server before, and we never had the problem there. You are right about what the error message means in Retrospect, but it doesn't make any sense, as I can copy the files manually, also I have checked on the unix box for any open files!

 

Kind regards
