View Full Version : amflush dumps ALL tape_splits over and over

Running amanda 2.5.2, it seems that even though I have tape_splitsize defined, amflush insists on flushing ALL splits for a given dump file. Since it always starts flushing with the first split, it never finds enough tape to finish, and a subsequent flush just starts over again at the beginning.

Is this a known issue? Is it fixed in a newer release?

This is intentional -- the holding disk file either contains the whole dumpfile or nothing. You'll need to get bigger tapes or set runtapes to something larger.
