    If by "backup jobs" you mean DLEs, you should be fine with most any modern computer. My amanda server is a fit-PC 1.0 with 229 MB of usable RAM. I run about 30 DLEs on that most nights.

    The requests for ssh connections originate from the server, not the client.

    The only reason to have .amandahosts on the server is to allow the server to back itself up. The amanda user is for the...

    I think not. I see no reference to retention-policy in the man page for amanda.conf.

    I'm not following. If you plan to use a Windows machine as your backup server, Amanda won't work for you. Amanda server only runs on Unix. Or do you plan to use one of the SGI boxes?

    It always wants a new tape.

    The rational is that if something ate a blank tape or one with old data on it, that would be no great loss. If it eats a tape with last night's back up, you are in...

    Can you get the effect you want by creating a separate configuration and calling that from cron as needed?

    E.g.:

    It looks good to me up to here. That line is the amrecover directory entry for the directory "." which is in all Unix directories. It is not showing any other files or directories, which is...

    Please start a new thread with your problem. Posting a new problem on an exiting thread is called hijacking, and is considered to be rude. It confuses the old issue, and makes it less...

    Amanda will refuse to write over a current tape, so it doesn't really matter which tape it starts with.

    I also have not used the MSSQL client. However, I suggest you not worry about full vs. partial backups and let amanda handle that. It works quite well.

    I believe GNU tar will not cross mount points if it is invoked with '--one-file-system' or '-l'. Possibly amanda does this. I can see the rationale: if you restore without the volume mounted, you...

    Not as far as I know. With 2.5" 2 terabyte drives lurking out there, that sounds like an interesting option.

    I suspect all you need to do is write a changer, which would check for the currently...

    I'm curious and wonder exactly what errors you are getting. One problem with GUIs is that if you can't show us the exact error message, you may paraphrase (as you did above) and miss something...

    yum not installed? Either someone has removed it (possible if they never use it), or it was never on that distribution. I know yum arrived on RHEL later than it did on Fedora, but that was a while...

    If there is only one client, then an SSH tunnel will likely do it. But you have several ports to set up correctly.

    I wonder if you could do it with SSH auth?

    Odd. You should have many gigabytes of disk space available. (I assume you did plan correctly.) I suspect something else is going on. Not knowing Solaris or your setup, a few stabs in the dark:

    This is not something Amanda does.

    Googling on "linux ghost" turns up several candidates. However, I am not sure any of those will take a live snapshot because of the problems involved.

    That might work. Note that Fedora tends to be more bleeding edge than RH, so you could have a library version mismatch.

    However, I would first run yum search amanda and see if it is available from...

    There is a problem with copying a live file system called referential integrity. I may have a database that stores parts of an atomic unit of data in two separate places. If it is doing that at the...
