What is the procedure to abort a backup? (It's not yet writing to tape, still comtemplating writing a filesystem with 5.7 million files to the staging area.)

Kill the amandad and any of its children that survive?

I am actually running Zmanda EE 3.0.2 but the procedure is probably similar to Amanda's. There doesn't seem to be a "abort" or "kill" function in the Zmanda Console.

Thanks -w

Please use amcleanup -k <backup set name>

See man page http://wiki.zmanda.com/man/amcleanup.8.html
