Thread: Selfcheck request failed: No route to host

  1. #1

    Default Selfcheck request failed: No route to host

    Hello,

    I was trying to install 2.6.3 version of Amanda but got stuck while verifying client. I am getting the following error while verifying client.

    "Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    --------------------------------
    WARNING: client.mydomain.com: selfcheck request failed: No route to host
    Client check: 1 host checked in 19.044 seconds. 1 problem found.

    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.3)"

    It seems the server is not able to connect to the client even though I am able to ping or ssh into the client from server. I also tried disabling iptables and TCP wrappers but, no luck.

    The contents of .amandahosts file is as follows.
    In Server.

    localhost root amindexd amidxtaped
    localhost amandabackup amdump
    localhost.localdomain root amindexd amidxtaped
    localhost.localdomain amandabackup amdump
    client.mydomain.com root amindexd amidxtaped

    In Client

    localhost amandabackup amdump
    localhost.localdomain amandabackup amdump
    server.mydomain.com amandabackup amdump

    /etc/xinetd.d/amandaclient

    service amanda
    {
    disable = no
    flags = IPv4
    flags = IPv6
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = amandabackup
    group = disk
    groups = yes
    server = /usr/lib/amanda/amandad
    server_args = -auth=bsdtcp amdump
    }

    /etc/xinetd.d/amandaserver

    service amanda
    {
    disable = no
    flags = IPv4
    flags = IPv6
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = amandabackup
    group = disk
    groups = yes
    server = /usr/lib/amanda/amandad
    server_args = -auth=bsdtcp amdump amindexd amidxtaped
    }

    Can anyone please shed some light on this ?

    Thanks in advance.

    The installed Amanda is a trial version of the Enterprise edition and I think they do not provide support as its a trial version.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you Sunil for the prompt reply.

    Default No route to host error too.

    I have installed Amanda 2.6.1 for Redhat 5. My computer OS is CentOS 5. I can ping and ssh into the client, but when I ran amcheck, I got "no route to host" error

    Add "debug_auth 1" to amanda.conf.
    Retry amcheck.
    Post the amcheck.*.debug files
    Post the output of: amadmin CONF disklist lartiste.mycompany.com

    Also post informations about the network configuration:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    netstat -nr
    traceroute lartiste.mycompany.com

    Your config have: flags = IPv6
    Are you using only IPv6?

    Default My log files

    Hi martineau,
    Thanks a lot for your help.
    I installed Amanda 2.6.1 following the white pager (pdf file) "Setting up ... 15 minutes". The network should be fine, because I can ssh between two machines. and I ran amaddclient to add client lartiste, which use scp to copy files into lartiste. I didn't know the meaning of flag IPv6. Thank you for pointing it out. Now I changed them into IPv4 and added the line "debug_auth 1" in amanda.conf. I then ran the amcheck again, same error. I post the screen output here. The debug log is in the attachment. Please note that the first two octaves of the IP address are masked out with 9.
