So, it appears the EMC hasn’t pulled the plug on Retrospect after all! A public beta test of “Retrospect X” is currently under way. They expect to release the upgrade sometime in 2008.
I was interested in knowing two things: is the issue with Leopard’s firewall resolved and is the issue with OS X Server and SQL files resolved.
I’m happy to report that the Leopard firewall issue seems to be fixed. I put the beta (2nd round) of Retrospect Client on my home Mac mini, which simply would not backup before unless the Firewall was off, (despite trying of the tricks I’ve seen). Now it works fine. Whee.
As for the OS X Server / SQL issue, I don’t know. The new Client requires OS X 10.4 and the Server I am having trouble with runs 10.3. Rats.
