Hello
My RedHat 5 server is running under amanda server v2.6.1b2.
I've installed the rpm downloaded from zmanda website.
I've downloaded the final version of amanda but when I run rpm -U amanda-server.rpm command, I get an error telling the the b2 rpm already installed is newer thant the final one.
How can I install the final version? I would like to avoid to uninstall the b2 version and reinstall the newer one, in order to not lose any configuration or index.

Thanks for your help,

FFF

Hmm, sounds like a problem with the redhat version-number sorting. Can you run it with --nodeps or something like that to "force" rpm not to be stupid?

Would it really delete your config and index if you uninstalled it? That's annoying!

Hi,
I'll try to force RPM to install it.
I'm not sure it would uninstall everything (which would be stupid) I just fear it could. I'll keep you informed.

Thanks for the reply,

Hi again,
I've backuped everything (just in case) and ran: rpm --force -U amanda_server.rpm
it has been updated correctly without losing any information.

Thanks for your help,
