View Full Version : amcheck halts on wrong label

October 7th, 2010, 07:35 AM
Hello all,

I run amanda 2.5p2 on a RedHat 5 server.

The tape device is a dell powervault using LTO2 tapes.

When I type amcheck and when the tapelabel is wrong, amlabel asks me to insert tape in an inexistant slot (the tape device has only one).

The most ennoying is that the behavior is the same with amcheck -m.

Could anyone help me to fix this ?

Any reason why you are still running 2.5?

It is a *very* old version, especially in light of all the rapid development that has happened in Amanda in last few years.

Please see newer versions here:

The only reason is that version is the one in the RedHat offical repositories...

Shall I wait for RedHat to put a newer one, or is there a repository that I could use ?
(My manager does not like rpm installs...);)
