data replicator does not find server upon restart/logout

Postby deus_lo_vult » Fri Dec 15, 2006 6:04 pm

Upon logon to Windows the data replicator II gives me the following error message:

The designated server is not available. Please check the network connection between the server and your computer.

The server (DS106-extreme) has a fixed IP and is in the same subnet (and workgroup) as the clients (DHCP). Each client has each own account and folder, where the backup goes.

Although the clients also connect to other shares on the server with a different user name, disconnecting the shares before logout/restart has no effect. Restarting the server also doesn't change anything.

Interestingly for exactly one of the clients, the reconnect works, although the settings in data replicator and for the account on the server are the same.

This thing gets quite annoying, since I don't want the users to let their machines run all the time only because of this...

I am getting exactly the same problem.

Used to work on my desktop just fine and a couple of laptops.

Rebuilt the desktop, clean install of XP etc. instal DRII and now it won't find the diskstation.....I have to browse and find it manually at every boot!

This is seriously begining to p^&s me off :(

OK, I think I've fixed my issue.

Deleted my windows xp user account and created a new one, DRII now seems to work ok. Starts up at start up finds the DS101 and backs up.

Don't know exactly what caused the problem, I'll just blame MS :)

What Data Replicator are you using? DRII version Beta 072 is available, see if that solves your problem.

You have to sign up for the beta program, available here

I now tried the beta on one client and there it works.

The question to me is how "beta" is this version? I have more ~20 clients to back up...

Franklin, do you know when there will be an official release?

I'll let the program now run for a few days and then see, whether it is stable.
