Thread: newbie setup question - amtapetype

    Default newbie setup question - amtapetype

    trying to setup amanda. From what I see in the doc the first step is to run amtapetype to see what amanda thinks about the tape drive. So I say "amtapetype -e 32g -f /dev/st0" and get "** process:6097):
    CRITICAL **: val_t_to_string: val.type is not CONFTYPE_STR nor CONFTYPE_IDENT"

    a mt -f /dev/st0 status gives me a valid status for the tape drive.
    It is a dell (seagate) DAT72.

    Not sure where to go from here.

    Ugh, that's a bug. For now, just go with your best estimate for the tapetype parameters. We'll fix amtapetype up in the patch release.

    Thanks for reporting it!
