View Full Version : Problems with amrecover & star

August 24th, 2010, 11:18 PM
Hello everyone!

I'm having problems using amrecover to recover files backed up with amstar.

After selecting a disk on a dump host with "SETDISK <disk>", I type "ADD *" to select all files and when I run "EXTRACT", I get the following error:

/usr/bin/star: Too many patterns (max is 100).
Extractor child exited with status -1

If I select only a few files, the restoration goes fine, so the dump is working.

What can I do to solve this error and restore all files?

Installation notes:
- OS: RHEL 5.5 amd64
- Amanda RPM package (from amanda.org): amanda-backup_server.x86_64 (3.1.2-1.rhel5)
- Star RPM package (from RHEL 5.5 repositories): star.x86_64 (1.5a75-3)
