View Full Version : Can't dump in degraded mode

November 3rd, 2010, 12:58 PM

I have been testing Amanda 3.2 to see if it is ready for prime time in my infrastructure and I keep getting random errors.
This is from the my /etc/amanda/daily/log.20101103122015.0:

The "Can't dump in degraded mode" is what confuses me. I successfully ran an amdump of desktop an hour earlier and was successful, however, server had that error before, so I uninstalled and re-installed the ZWC and now server is working, but desktop is not. I am running ZWC 3.1.3 on all my clients.

I am currently using vtapes, but eventually, I plan on using amvault to take my full backups and move them to tape in the event of hard drive failure/offsite capabilities. That is my next step, once I get a complete backup of three servers.
