Anyone using parallel file hashing with 2.3.x?


If anyone has parallel file hashing enabled and is using it with Internet client, I’d appreciate feedback, i.e. if it is working or if it has remaining issues.


There’s no crash or messages on the kernel console like at one point.
I could do some restore tests next week.


Just turned it on for the Internet clients in my biggest install (servers at remote offices) and got failed backups due to multiple “Error getting parallel hash for file” messages in log. Also seeing Error during parallel hash load: TIMEOUT at the end. All clients are Windows Server 2008 R2 on 2.3.4, server is Windows Server 2008 R2 on 2.3.7.

Happens for full and incremental file backups, as well as resumed backups. Number of errors varies from 3 to 1372. Suggestions?

At another site I have a local network Windows 7 Pro client over WiFi set to use Internet mode backups for encryption and saving bandwidth. That appears to be working so far.


Damn, more testing to reproduce the problem then, I guess.
