Leave it to a computer to make us feel humble. I know I must be missing something really simple here but I've got a problem that's got me stumped. Before calling it quits for the day I switch my location manager from my dial-up set to my Retrospect set. Location Manager being what it is...sometimes the configuration doesn't switch well and I need to restart (it seems to be related to how long I've been connected on the dial-up but that's another issue altogether). I launch Retrospect and go to configure>clients to make sure all is well for the evening's backups. Now, here's the problem. For the past few days my clients are seen just fine when I manually check them. However, when I sit down at my computer in the morning I see that my Windows client is getting a -1028 error during the scripted backup. As soon as I see this, I launch Retrospect and do a run script and all goes swimmingly. Now, the Windows box isn't touched from the time I manually check it in the evening to the time I re-run the script in the morning. This worked just fine until recently. Nothing in my setup has changed at all except that I've put an Ecrix drive into the mix. But I can't see any reason why a new backup device would impact the client's ability to be seen during an unattended script. This only happens on the Windows client and it only happens on the unattended backup and there are no other errors. Manually checking it or doing an immediate run script are just fine. It's driving me mad (not a far drive, btw). Anything short of tossing out my Retro.Config file would be appreciated.
