View Full Version : Installing Amanda as server and client on same system

February 6th, 2007, 05:07 AM
I have installed Amanda server on a SuSE Linux computer and I'd like to use Amanda to back it up. I have the client rpm but I don't know if the client installation will override the server. Can I use Amanda to backup the same computer?

You do NOT need to install a seperate client to backup the Amanda Server.

The amanda server also includes the amanda client, so that the server can back itself up.
