I'm just wondering if anyone else here is using this?
The majority of jobs on our CentOS5 server "fail" by "Communications failure" right at the end, apparently on the very last file which, however, is recoverable, as is the whole archive. In more than half these failures, the Linux agent has stopped and, in about half of those, crashes leaving a backtrace. I had similar symptoms in Fedora4 (though much less often) and Fedora9 when the data was on a different server.
Symantec have looked at this but they only "support" RHEL and SLES so will not delve deeper.
