    Default What about IOMEGA REV35GB ?


    I would like to use Amanda with my Iomega REV disk.

    Is Amanda can use this device?

    I try to cinfigure it, but when i use "#amcheck clt daily" the system print:

    Amanda Tape Server Host Check

    wait for about 1 min and finaly print:

    insert tape into slot 1 and press return

    my amanda config file is:

    org "daily"
    mailto "xxxx@xxxxxx.xx"
    dumpcycle 1 weeks
    runspercycle 4
    tapecycle 5 tapes
    tpchanger "chg-manual"
    tapedev "/dev/scd0"
    changerfile "/etc/amanda/daily/changer"

    infofile "/etc/amanda/daily/curinfo"
    logdir "/etc/amanda/daily/log"
    indexdir "/etc/amanda/daily/index"

    tapetype REV_35GB
    labelstr "^Daily[0-9][0-9]*$"

    ctimeout 30
    dumpuser "amanda"
    inparallel 4
    dumporder "sssS"
    taperalgo first
    displayunit "m"
    netusage 600 Kbps
    bumpsize 20 Mb
    bumppercent 20
    bumpdays 1
    bumpmult 4

    etimeout 300
    dtimeout 1800
    tapebufs 20

    runtapes 1
    maxdumpsize -1

    amrecover_do_fsf yes
    amrecover_check_label yes
    amrecover_changer "/dev/null"

    define tapetype REV_35GB {
    comment "IOMEGA REV disk size 35GB"
    length 35000 mbytes
    filemark 100 kbytes
    speed 25000 mbytes

    define dumptype global {
    comment "Global definitions"

    define dumptype always-full {
    comment "Full dump of this filesystem always"
    compress none
    priority high
    dumpcycle 0
    define dumptype user-tar {
    comment "user partitions dumped with tar"
    priority medium


    define interface local {
    comment "a local disk"
    use 1000 kbps

    define interface le0 {
    comment "10 Mbps ethernet"
    use 400 kbps

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Gecko,

    You should be able to use USB Iomega REV disks with Amanda. Before using
    it with Amanda, you should create a filesystem and mount the device (/dev/scd0).

    Amanda will treat Iomega REV devices as disks and do disk based backup.
    See [url][/url] for more information
    on how to set up disk based backup.
