Retrospect 6.0 and Mac OS X Server


In last week’s TidBITS article about the release of Dantz Development’s Retrospect 6.0, we made a small error when talking about compatibility with Mac OS X Server. Retrospect Server can back up Mac OS X Server, either by running on the same Mac or using remote Retrospect Client software. In contrast, the less-expensive Retrospect Workgroup cannot back up Mac OS X Server machines using Retrospect Client, but it can back up Mac OS X Server if it’s running on the same Mac (we had missed that final detail). It’s a subtle point, but for offices whose backup servers run Mac OS X Server, it’s a difference of $200 in the upgrade price and more when buying a new copy.
