Hi,

I have amanda running happily on an FC6 box and pulling backups from a windows client using SSH.

So the next step was to try and recover something, however as there is no "amandaroot" user on the FC6 box, amrecover fails as it can not open an SSH link.

What is the normal configuration suggestion?

Thanks

JB

Please use Amanda recovery program (amrecover) from Windows Start menu
See http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Windows_client#Restoring_files_on_the_Windows_clie nt
It runs amrecover as amandaroot.
