View Full Version : Redhat 5 RPM 64 bit 2 issues Amanda 3.2

I installed the 64 amanda 3.2 rpm on centos 5.5 and there at lease 2 problems that i have noticed.

1. when running through the 15 min quick setup documentation and running the command amserverconfig DailySet1 it fails with the message there there is a duplicate line in the advanced.conf

I fixed that by modifying the template in /var/lib/amanda/template.d/advanced.conf and commenting the line below as it also appears in amanda.conf

#dumpuser "amandabackup" # the user to run dumps under

2. The file ampgsql.pl doesn't appear to be in the pre-compiled rpm I installed. It does exist in the rpm source though.

Can i just copy the ampgsql.pl file to some specific location and where should i put it?

Please copy ampgsql to /usr/lib/amanda/application directory on the Amanda server.

Looks like the correct location on Redhat/Centos will be


Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
