I've been trying for about a week to get Amanda to successfully backup a partition of 3.5TB and several million files to disk ('virtual tapes'). Every time it fails with some error or another.

I've posted the latest problem in this forum, but in general has anyone here got Amanda successfully working with so many files onto tape? I'm considering dumping it and trying Bacula, it just doesn't seem reliable and the concept of 'virtual tapes' seems to be a hack that might be the source of the problems.
