    Default Recover data when amanda server crash

    Hi everybody,

    I'm a new amanda user and I have a question about amrecover:

    If my amanda server crash (I mean if I have to reinstall the OS or the server is physically broken) is it possible to recover the data ? Of course I backup everyday all amanda files (like /etc/amanda folder).

    Can we just reinstall amanda server and use the same tapes to recover the data ?

    I hope I was clear (despite my English).

    Many thanks

    "Amanda uses native dump and/or GNU tar utilities. Since there are no proprietary formats, in case of emergency, data could be recovered with native utilities, regardless of whether or not Amanda is still installed."
