    Gtar wrapper

    I tried to create a tar wrapper in /usr/local/bin/amtar. It was a simple wrapper that basically just does '/bin/nice /bin/tar $@'. I compiled amanda with --with-gnutar=/usr/local/bin/amtar, but...

    The log files from when this last happened are gone now, but I will try to update when it happens again. I'm going to be trying tar again on a client to see if I can reproduce it.

    This process has been running since September 6. We used client side compression on this occasion but usually use server side. We have experienced the same problem either way, however.

    Old files left over in tape slots

    Quite often when Amanda writes to a new tape (I'm using virtual tapes on disk), some of the old files are left behind. I thought that Amanda would erase the tape before writing to it. Is there a...

    I have the same exact problem. It happens only with tar, not dump. I have been advised that tar is preferred for ext2/3 filesystems but I won't be using it if this continues.
