View Full Version : FC4 upgrade to 2.5.0 problem

July 28th, 2006, 01:39 PM
Hello all. I've installed a new FC4 server to test 2.5.0 before upgrading my production server. First, I removed the stock rpms using rpm -e. Then I installed the FC4 rpms for 2.5.0. Now rpm -q amanda says amanda is not installed, yet amadmin x version reports Amanda-2.5.0p2. chkconfig shows no amanda services. No errors were reported in /var/log/amanda/install.log. I've obviously boofed something during the upgrade. Any insight? Thanks for any help!!!

I guess you had obtained rpms from http://www.zmanda.com/downloads.html

RPMs are called amanda-backup_server and amanda-backup_client

rpm -q amanda-backup_server should work

You can try "rpm -qa | grep amanda"

Amanda does not have any chkconfig services. The backups are usually done
from crontab.

Boy, is my face red! Had I done rpm -qa|grep amanda I would have seen the rpms listed. Yes, I downloaded the rpms from Zmanda. About the services, my production server is running 2.4.2 and chkconfig (grepping for am) shows amandaidx, amanda, and amidxtape. I was assuming they would be on 2.5.0 as well.

Thanks, Paddy!
