Howdy all,

I'm somewhat of a newbie, and I apologize if this has been asked before, I did search the forums beforehand, but was unable to find a post with an answer related to my question.

I'm attempting to create a vTape configuration with amserverconfig and am receiving the following error:

"ERROR: mkdir:/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists failed: No such file or directory"

Which the software isn't fibbing, that folder really doesn't exist. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software to no avail. Any step in the right direction would be most appreciated.

Oh, I forgot to put in:
Am using Fedora 10. I don't know if that has any bearing on this at all.

Regards,

Charley

It's a known bug. In amserverconfig, change
my $def_tapedev="file:/$amandahomedir/vtapes";
to
my $def_tapedev="file:/var/lib/amanda/vtapes";

Hello,

Wow, I certainly didn't expect a reply that quickly. I'm very appreciative, though. Thank you very much.

Regards,

Charley

Well i just did an install of 2.6.1-1 on CentOs 5.2 and ran into the same error

ERROR: mkdir:/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists failed: No such file or directory

Found the amserverconfig finally in the

/usr/sbin folder and in that file i changed

my $amandahomedir="$localhomevar/lib/amanda";

to

my $amandahomedir="/var/lib/amanda";

it was weird i have never seen anything like that in a config file for a variable!!!

After i changed that line amserverconfig worked perfectly.

Now to just get the reset working.

It's a known bug in 2.6.1. I'm glad you found the solution.

Hello,

I have a problem with amanda. I have installed amanda for a long time but a few days ago I have a problem. If the dump takes 1 hour normally, now the dump takes 3 hours and this is the error that I have:

FAILURE AND STRANGE DUMP SUMMARY:
aropc2 /sis/ficheros lev 0 STRANGE [renaming /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists/aropc2_sis_ficheros_0.new to /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists/aropc2_sis_ficheros_0: No such file or directory]

And I work with this version:
(brought to you by Amanda version 2.5.2p1)

I see this post but my problem continue.

Can anyone help me?

Best Regards and thank you in advance.
