View Full Version : Unable to Start Over from slot1!

March 12th, 2010, 10:03 AM
Hi to all, I have been trying to set up a backup with a Full backup every Week and an incremental every day. Using:
dumpcycle 7 days
runspercycle 5
tapecycle 6 tapes

For this I have Virtual tapes, like this: /backup/Saruman/slots/slot1...slot6

The thing That I have been trying is to reset the tape using:
- amtape Saruman reset

After that the symbolic link for data links to slot1. but after doing an:
- amcheck Saruman

The symbolic links goes back to slot6.

I have deleted all the files in /etc/amanda/Saruman/ (except disklist and amanda.conf) but nothing, it always goes back to slot6.

What else can I do, I'm planing to put amanda in production this Sunday.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Which amanda release are you using?
What's the output of amcheck?
