Hi all!
I ve set the backup function to copy the backupfiles to a directory - well ok.
I want to save these files twice to an external AIT Drive using EMC Retrospect.

But these files all locked and Retrospect can?t save. Is there a simple way to backup these files?

Mac 10.3.9 Server, german
KMS 6.4.1 Patch 1
Retrospect 6
ext. Sony AIT-2 drive, firewire

hoping for a simple way. Thanks
Johann

I have a similar setup at a client, OS X Server 10.3.9, KMS 6.4.1p1 and don't have any locked file issues. I do have backups going to a separate directory on another drive however before backing them up over the network to another server so that might be the issue.

Hi Ryan!
Thank You for your answer! I have a separate drive too, the folder has the rights:
i / allow read and write
owner / allow read and write
group / allow read and write
all / no rights

But the archive zip files are:
i / no rights; owner / no rights; group and all / no rights.

Why is that diffent to Yours? "Apple + I" for setting up rights and changing the owner-rights to "allow read and write" does nothing change an the files. And if i successfully change that (what i cant) - after next writing a new archive file from KMS same "wrong" rights come up again.

That is maybe the problem. Any Idea?

regards - Johann

Mine look the same, I don't back up to tape however. If you had Tiger server you could use ACL's on the folder to force permissions.

I also run KMS on a Linux server and have the backups written to the Backup user's home folder. Then I keep Transmit open on the Mac and auto sync the folder to a local directory. I know I have to run a cron job on the server to change the permissions on all files in the user's directory to change them so I can back them up. If I didn't change the permissions I couldn't download the files.
