    You will need to change "runtapes 1" to "runtapes 2" to be able to use two tapes during a backup run of amdump. As you have it set now, Amanda is being TOLD by you that it can only use a maximum of...

    I just thought I'd follow up a bit here, since I never got an answer about mixing new clients and old Amanda servers.

    I tested an installation of Amanda-client on Ubuntu-11.04, doing backups to my...
  3. New clients talking to old Amanda server, possible?

    [Executive summary - will new clients work with old server release?]

    Hi folks - we've been so happy with Amanda backups that we've been running v2.5.2p1 for years. We're currently backing up 458...

    That's telling you the for some reason, the process listening for Amanda connections on the 192.168.2.2 host is not allowing the Amanda daemon to run when the Amanda server makes an attempt to run a...

    In doing this, you are TELLING Amanda what you are going to do. Amanda is trusting you to tell it the truth - over the course of the next 4 weeks, you will run 20 backups. Assuming you have enough...

    You don't mention anything about the type of system you are trying to back up. For Unix and Unix-like systems, there are both GNU tar based backups and DUMP based backups. Backups that your the dump...

    Hi Jean-Louis, just wondering if "this error" that you are referring to is the "disk was stranded on waitq" error, or the "tcpm_recv_token: invalid size 66373" error in the amandad.debug file?

    You don't actually show the config file, but if you've cut-n-pasted that message text, then perhaps "ocnf1" is supposed to be "conf1". If the directory "ocnf1" doesn't exist, Amanda would have a...

    As far as Amanda is concerned, you should already have a working mail configuration on your system. So, for instance, on a Unix computer, if the following works:

    One thing to keep in mind as a major problem in initial setup is TCP versus UDP (that's the "protocol=tcp", "socket_type=stream", and "wait=no" options vs "protocol=udp", "socket_type=dgram",...

    Hi linuxtrek, just wondering, what version of Amanda is in the etch package? You can see version info in the output from "amadmin X version":

    Hello amazander,



    That means that Amanda server and client aren't on speaking tems. Something "network" related (firewalls, ports being used, TCP vs UDP etc.) isn't right and needs to be...

    Just wondering, but have you always built Amanda using "--with-user=root" as part of the configuration? I've never tried that, but Amanda is NOT designed to be run as root in general. The...

    I see this every so often as well, and haven't been able to track this down. In my case, I'm using Amanda-2.5.2p1 everywhere, so just having the latest production version doesn't solve the problem. ...

    I would expect that if the external USB drive looks like a normal filesystem to your SUSE server that is running the Amanda server package, and you configure Amanda to use virtual tapes to that...

    This says that the server doesn't know to resolve (find the the name of) a system named "qa-printer.ihcserv", and you'd either need to define it to the server (in /etc/hosts, for instance), or more...

    Hi Stuart -



    Hmmm, that seems like it should be a relatively minor issue for Ubuntu if the USB drive is standard, but it might also be something that was added to Ubuntu in more recent...

    Using tape spanning, your full backup would just take more than one tape, and your incrementals will take less. I think that a larger number of smaller "tapes" would be more useful, with tape use...
