- FreeBSD Software
Updated May 2018
Tested on FreeBSD 9.x through FreeBSD 10.3, with Retrospect 7.7 through Retrospect 15.0 x64
Note 1: As of May 23rd, 2018, Retrospect 15.1 (220.127.116.11) does NOT work for us on any of our FreeBSD or Ubuntu Linux systems. We are currently using 15.0 (18.104.22.168) while waiting for a fix.
Note 2: Retrospect cannot seem to create a password (stored in /var/log/retroclient.state) with the CentOS libraries on FreeBSD.
Attempting to set a password ("retroclient -setpass") results in this being repeated over and over:
That password is invalid, password length must be at least 4 That password is invalid, password length must be at least 4
Or you simply get this message and then nothing happens:
Overriding existing password.
We were able to use "setpass" with the 32-bit Fedora Linux libraries in the past. The current work-around we use is to create a retrclient.state file on an actual Linux system, then copy it over to the FreeBSD system.
