Remote administration problem

Remote administration problem

These are the most common error messages displayed under Details when encountering problems with remote administration:

Could not retrieve the mount point for host /dev/filesystem

Failed to retrieve local filesystem list for host host
These messages occur when making an Open Host or Schedule New Remote Filesystem selection without user equivalence for the account that is running the manager. When performing an operation that opens a remote host, the account on the local host must be recognized by the remote system. This differs from backup equivalency, which is required for remote administration (where you do not actually log in to the host using the Open Host dialog box).

Error occurred while accessing the media device: Permission denied.
This occurs when performing backing up a remote filesystem without user equivalence for the backup account on the remote host. See ``Establishing backup user equivalence'' for more information.

Could not get authorization data on host hostname
The remote system may be unreachable or there may be a configuration problem. See ``Troubleshooting TCP/IP'' in the Networking Guide for more information. This error is also diaplayed when performing a remote backup without user equivalence for the backup account on the remote host. See ``Establishing backup user equivalence'' for more information.
