    Default runspercycle in amanda report

    Hi there,
    i'm using Amanda version 2.5.2p1 running on Linux Suse Enterprise Edition 11. Based on my amanda report,

    planner: Last full dump of serverA:/department on tape Friday overwritten in 5 runs.
    planner: Last full dump of serverA:/home on tape Thursday overwritten in 4 runs.
    planner: Last full dump of serverB:/local on tape Friday overwritten in 5 runs.
    planner: Last full dump of serverB:/mnt/servA on tape Friday overwritten in 5 runs.
    planner: Last full dump of serverB:/mnt/servB on tape Friday overwritten in 5 runs.


    i have set dumpcycle and runspercycle as 0 since i want to run full backup on every night and set tapecycle as 6 in amanda.conf since i want to run amdump from Monday-Saturday.

    Can anyone explain to me regarding this?

    Hi ,

    The backup report is telling you when tape "Friday" will be overwritten and that it has a full backup:

    planner: Last full dump of serverA:/department on tape Friday overwritten in 5 runs
    ^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^ ^^

    Cheers,
