Hi Guys,

Windows Client:
1) OS-XP SP2
2)Loaded packages amandaclient 2.5.1p1,SSH(Cgywin)Gnu tar,Gnu zip.

Problem Facing:
When doing amcheck -c test on server ,i am receving the error message one hosts checked not found.Between the server and client i had selected is BSDTCP when installing amandclient software in windows.

If anybody configured the linux to windows client successfully.pls tell me procedure of configuring windows client with respect to FC4 linux server.

I had tried by searching the website of zmanda and zmanda forums.Still now i am trying and facing the above problem.pls help me to come out...from this problem..

Can you please copy/paste the exact output/error messages that you see when you type

amcheck -c test

Assuming the name of your backup set is 'test'

Also, please post the following.

the contents of your

/etc/test/disklist

contents of the /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts from both the server as well as the windows xp client.

thanks
