    Default amanda stuck

    We have a huge backup job (around 1k servers) using amanda 2.5.1p3-2 on dedicated server.
    But when I configured the job and ran 'amdump DailySet2' the backup have been started to create backups and after several days its just got stuck silently.

    A lot of dumper and gzip proccesses is up and running, but nothing pointing in logs to that the job is actually doing something.
    I also didn't find any errors or other suspicious things in amdump logs.

    When I'm killing amdump and starting it again, it works fine for several days until the same behavior occurs.

    Where to start digging?

    Thank you.

    Check amreport output to understand where it is stuck. You can check debug logs in /var/log/amanda

    btw, 2.5.1p3 is quite old.

    Yeah I know it's old but it worked quite good for a while.

    Thanks I run amreport DailySet2 and it says that there is some kind of error in volumes.
    See below:


    Code:
    *** THE DUMPS DID NOT FINISH PROPERLY!
    
    Hostname: backup4
    Org     : LOCAL
    Config  : DailySet2
    Date    : August 18, 2011
    
    *** A TAPE ERROR OCCURRED: [No acceptable volumes found].
    There are 7010317M of dumps left in the holding disk.
    They will be flushed on the next run.
    
    The next 10 tapes Amanda expects to use are: 10 new tapes.

    Can you advise how to fix the volume?

    There are multiple problems.

    1. Check whether you labeled your tapes.
    2. backup4-i.fc2.com should be added to /home/amanda/.amandahosts on client spare-i
    3. Lot of clients cannot be contacted (see timeout errors)
