    Something interesting, A_PC_On_The_lan is a pc on the lan......why does snoop show this traffic...there's no amanda config on that pc....

    Coming back to the issues of backing the client onto the server:

    On client, before amcheck weekly is, on server run:
    # svcs -a | grep amanda
    online 14:30:07 svc:/network/amanda/udp:default

    After running, on server, amcheck weekly, client shows:
    # svcs -a | grep amanda
    maintenance 14:33:54 svc:/network/amanda/udp:default



    On client:
    # grep amanda /etc/inetd.conf
    amanda dgram udp wait amanda /opt/csw/libexec/amandad amandad

    # grep amanda /etc/services
    amanda 10080/udp


    On server:
    # svcs -a | grep amanda
    online 15:06:51 svc:/network/amanda/udp:default
    #
    # grep amanda /etc/inetd.conf
    amanda dgram udp wait amanda /opt/csw/libexec/amandad amandad
    # grep amanda /etc/services
    amanda 10080/udp # Amanda

    Default

    Can the service on the client then be easily restarted with, say

    # svcadm clear svc:/network/amanda/udp:default
    # svcadm restart svc:/network/amanda/udp:default

    Do system and possibly Amanda logs on the client offer any more detail?

    yes the service is restarted that way....

    what is the log location?

    Default

    Amanda logs are in /var/log/amanda. Of course, Solaris system messages are in /var/adm/messages.
