EMC Retrospect 7.7 Pro for Windows
Posted on 2011-03-11
We are running EMC Retrospect 7.7 for Windows, Server Edition, on a Windows 2008 Server and have three (3) questions:
(1) How do you run the Activity Monitor when Retrospect is running in another user's session? When I login to the Server and run Retrospect Activity Monitor, it prompts me that it is running in another user's account and shows nothing. So the only way to get to the activity monitor is to "Stop" retrospect and then try to run the Activity Monitor again. Is that the only solution?
(2) I am not quite sure how the ReportWatcher works. When I run it and access the report that was generated, there is no data!! How is that? Is there anything I need to configure in Retrospect that will generate the data for the reports?
(3) Lastly, We had the most unfortunate thing happen to us last week. The backup medium, a NAS, though on RAID 5, had two drives fail simultaneously for bad sectors. So much for investing in a Raid 5 NAS!!!
Luckily though we were able to extract all the Retrospect backup files (rdb files) except for two. These two “rdb” files were damaged by the bad sectors and could not be retrieved. These two files are neither at the begging nor at the end of the set, they are somewhere 3/4 way down.
My question is if there is a way to tell Retrospect that these two files are missing?
