    the ruser of amandad is root in both cases, where amrecover works, and where amrecover doesn't - but I see the child process for amindexd being the problem - why would it be root in one case and not...

    Actually by snapshotting processes, I've managed to determine that amandad executes ok - it's amindex that's the problem. Here's a comparative study ... for the old version of amanda (252p1) where...

    On closer inspection, doing a snapshot of all running processes during the failed amrecover

    in csh:

    ops-amanda.******# while 1
    ? ps -eo ruid,user,args >> whappen.txt
    ? end

    I see...

    there is something painfully obvious here - amanda runs as ruid 101 and root is of course ruid 0, but no matter what user amindexd runs as, the result is the same: amindexd: critical (fatal): euid...
  6. amrecover fails - amindexd.debug on server says: euid (101) does not match uid (0)

    Hi, I realise the solution to this should seem obvious from what the debug says, but it's not, or I'm just not seeing it. I've just installed amanda 3.2.2, and everything looks fine from the server...
  7. perpetual level 8 incremental - is there a problem?

    For a certain machine, we have a very large /home entry in the disklist (usually ~200G), and since we started backing it up, the backup level has gone 0 (full), 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8 .... 8...

    I finally resolved the last problem here. What needs to be done is to add the amandabackup user to the group that can read the directories in question. Thanks for all the help.

    Good point, listening to the errmsg was the right idea! So in the .amandahosts file I put:

    [root@wsfmas23 amanda]# cat .amandahosts
    ops-amanda.fullservername.com amanda amdump

    and we have some...

    I uninstalled those 2 older version client rpms and installed the amanda-backup-client rpm v2.5.2 which matches the server version, but it seems to insist (or be hard-wired) into having...

    That's strange because my other machines seem to talk bsdtcp ok, with a 252p1 server ... and using those v250 client rpms! but I'll try v251 client rpms as you suggest.

    Thanks for your reply Martineau.

    By "the client", you mean the amanda rpms on the client, or is there something else that needs to be done?

    I thought all you need to do is specify the right...
  13. amcheck faills with no driver for security type 'bsdtcp'

    Hi everybody, this is my first post!

    I'm setting up a new amanda client just like many others already set up, but get this when doing the basic amcheck.

    [amanda@ops-amanda ~]$ amcheck -c zone1...
