Hi Guys,

-> I had installed amanda 2.5.2p1 server and client version in the Ubuntu machine and windows versions of amanda 2.5.2p1 in windows vista machine.

-> I configured both server and client machines ie Ubuntu client and window client.

-> After all configuration when i tried to run command,
amcheck DailySet1

Amanda Tape Server Host Check
Holding disk /dumps/amanda: 4952600 KB disk space available, using 4850200 KB
slot 2: read label `Tape-2', date `20091014'
NOTE: skipping tape-writable test
Tape Tape-2 label ok
Server check took 0.521 seconds

Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
ERROR: NAK user backup from ubuntu-client is not allowed to execute the service noop: Please add "amdump" to the line in /var/backups/.amandahosts on the client
WARNING: selfcheck request failed: timeout waiting for ACK
Client check: 2 hosts checked in 29.443 seconds, 2 problems found

-> I once again checked all the configuration and again run the command. Even then i am getting same error.

-> Can anyone please help in this case.

Is there a specific reason why you are not using 2.6 versions of server and client?

2.5.2p1 version of Windows Client uses cygwin. 2.6 version of Windows client is much better. I'm assuming that you are using software packages from http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php

If you have to use 2.5.2p1, please do what the error says:

Please add "amdump" to the line in /var/backups/.amandahosts on the client
