Problems with PAR2 checking

Post by gdl »

Version: 0.3.1 Stable
OS: Windows Home Server (Server 2003)
Install-type: Windows Installer
Firewall Software: Windows Firewall
Are you using IPV6? no
Is the issue reproducible? not sure yet

I'm finding downloads that on manual PAR2 checking fail (also unrarring fails). The NZB files used have sufficient par2 files to enable repair, but SABnzbd+ is not downloading additional PAR2 files.

Fragment of the log file:
2008-02-21 12:44:53,108::INFO::[assembler] Par2 check starting on ######.nzb
2008-02-21 12:44:53,108::INFO::[assembler] Running repair on set #####
2008-02-21 12:44:53,828::INFO::[newsunpack] Par verify failed on \\Pollux\Download\Incomplete Downloads\######.vol000+01.PAR2!
2008-02-21 12:44:53,828::INFO::[assembler] Par2 check finished on ######.nzb

Any clues?

Try having your incomplete folder on the Windows Home Server box and not on a shared folder, there seems to be some issues (permissions?) when trying to repair files over a network share.

Thanks for your quick reply, I have changed the Incomplete Download folder to a direct folder on the server machine. I will let you know the result asap.
