Re: Backup Server Questions

2000-05-18 Thread Ben Liberman
While this is a good way to prevent redundant backups of the same client at short intervals, Retrospect is still constantly polling the network when Backup Server is active. This is how it's able to know when you've set your client to "Back Up ASAP." The "back up every..." setting applies to

Time for backup at home

Much as I'd love to put a VXA or AIT drive on my home network, I don't want to spend that much money on the drive. I've had enough bad experiences with DAT and DAT-II drives that I've ruled out that option. It seems to be coming down to NS-20 and Onstream ECHO 30. DRIVE NS-20 ECHO

based on your speed spec, I'd go for the ECHO30. The 50 MB/min throughput of the NS20 would be fine for 10BaseT, but if you ever go to fast ethernet that drive would become a bottleneck. I haven't used either one, but am interested to hear what you think since I'm also looking for something in

If you'll be backing up over 10BT, then you might want to do the NS-20. It most closely matches the performance of the network, and should prevent excessive underruns, repositioning and rebuffering, which may improve overall throughput. Just a thought. It's open for comments. Brad.

I am having a related problem. Up until two days ago everything was working fine, but since then a backup has yet to complete. Last night, the backup computer did not even finish backing up itself. Our back up server is a G3 400 Mhz with 192 MB of RAM with 23 GB of Hard drive space and our

Yamaha 8424 driver update?

I've been trying to keep up with all the discussion on the Yamaha CDRW8424 drive (which I have) and making it work with Retrospect. On the site http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/SCSI/yamaha8424.html someone mentioned that Dantz was shipping an updated driver for owners of this CD-RW drive. Is this
