Thread: connection refused

  1. #1

    Default connection refused

    I have installed amanda server on fedora 6 and a client on fedora 8

    the client can backup , at least it doesnt show any errors during the backup

    but amrecover fails with connection refused

    running netstat -a | grep amanda shows no results

    It seems the server isnt running

    the amandad file is in /usr/libexec/amanda/amandad

    the /etc/xinetd.d/amandaserver file has entry

    "server=/usr/libexec/amanda/amandad"
    "server_args = -auth=bsdtcp amdump amindexd amidxtaped"

    What versions of Amanda are you running on the client and server? Also, are you running Amanda packages provided by Fedora, ore the Zmanda packages:

    [URL="http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php"]http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php[/URL]

    Also, since the server and/or client are running under xinetd, they won't be running all the time, just when needed.

    The best way to make sure "all is well" on this front is simply to type:

    Code:
    # telnet <HOSTNAME> amanda
    for each hostname. This ensures that the Amanda daemon will run on-demand.

    I installed the latest version of amanda backup server from amanda.zmanda.com

    amanda-backup_server-2..0p1-1.fc6.i386.rpm


    when I try: telnet backupserver.local I get connection refused

    telnet backupserver.local amanda
    Trying 192.168.155.6...
    telnet: connect to address 192.168.155.6: Connection refused

    same with amrecover
    amrecover
    AMRECOVER Version 2.6.0p1. Contacting server on backupserver.local ...
    [request failed: Connection refused]


    when I telnet to the client from the server it connects ok

    Angry Connection refused

    I have been using linux a few years now, and recently decided to build a amanda server. What I thought was going to be easy has turned out to be the hardest challenge I have had yet.
    I am running Fedora 9. I used Yum to install the amanda-server package. I have configured Vtapes. I have ready the 15 minute challenge, and the quick start guide. I have reinstalled the whole machine several times and still I get:
    selfcheck request failed: connection refused, when running amcheck. I have changed every optoin I can find and still can't get past this error. I get this error even from the client on the server itself.
    PLEASE HELP!!

    I would guess a problem with the client. Also check the file /etc/xinetd.d/amandaserver or whatever your file is called

    if you used the file from the guide this line may be wrong... look for the amandad file n your system and correct the line to be that location

    probably server= /usr/libexec/amanda/amandad


    p.s. you would probably get more help if you start your own thread in the forum

    First of all, you are using the Amanda packages provided by Fedora, instead of the newer packages from Zmanda ("I used Yum to install the amanda-server package"). As a good first step, I would suggest using the packages available from:

    [URL="http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php"]http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php[/URL]

    Then you can make use of all the information from the Amanda Wiki a lot easier:

    [URL="http://wiki.zmanda.com"]http://wiki.zmanda.com[/URL]

    Finally, make sure that you do not have a firewall blocking the Amanda port (10080) and that /etc/services has the Amanda port open for both TCP and UDP.

    That should give you a good start...
