amandahosts
This thread (http://forums.zmanda.com/showthread.php?t=86&highlight=amandahosts) on going from 2.4 to 2.5 was helpful.

There is no man for amandahosts, and there is a difference in the wiki and the example installed. Does each line contain only 2 parameters (fully-qualified host and id)? There was a amandahosts file installed from the rpm and the first line contained:

localhost amandabackup amdump

Is the amdump valid syntax?

amanda.conf
The last line of the example amanda.conf is #includefile "/etc/amanda/amanda.conf.main".
Is there a list/example of what a global amanda.conf would look like vs a specifc dump (i.e., /etc/amanda/daily, /etc/amanda/archive, /etc/amanda)?

Thank you.

.amandahosts

localhost amandabackup amdump is valid for 2.5.1. Earlier versions did not
have services field. It was just "hostname username".

See 2.5.1 details in the wiki page for .amandahosts changes (http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Configuring_bsd/bsdudp/bsdtcp_authentication).

amanda.conf

#includefile "/etc/amanda/amanda.conf.main" is an example of how to include another file containing amanda.conf parameters. I did not understand what you are looking for. Usually for archive configurations, the dumptype would
be different. It will have "record no" and strategy will be "noinc"
