Hi,

I am getting the following error at dumping time..

planner: [dump larger than tape, 7000688 KB, but cannot incremental dump new disk]

My setup details...
amanda-2.4.4p3-1
amanda-devel-2.4.4p3-1
amanda-client-2.4.4p3-1
amanda-server-2.4.4p3-1

holding disk 90gb capacity.
25 vtapes running...
Our data to be backed up is more than 300gb
In disklist,totally 7 partitions has been mentioned,Out of 7 partition two partition are more than 80gb...that two partition r failing with planner error.

amanda.snstech.com://exon/Test 0 planner: [dump larger than tape, 37887306 KB, but cannot incremental dump new disk] (more than 100gb data is there)


i tried by spanning the vtape as per the wiki document..but amanda cfg is failing,indicating expexted error in amanda.conf file.

Pls let me know what i have to do for this planner error.

tape spanning was added in amanda-2.5.0, so you'll either need to upgrade, or split your DLEs: http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/How_To:Split_DLEs_With_Exclude_Lists

Hi,

Finally i increased the length of the vtape and holding disk capacity in amanda.conf file,its solves the above issues.
