    Default openSUSE 11.2 amanda

    I am running amanda for several years, so I think the configuration is ok. ;-)
    After an SuSE online update of amanda to version x86_64 I have the following problem. Running amcheck at the server just for one client and one disk:
    amanda@muemmel:/var/log> amcheck -c mue_hd muemmel1 sdb2
    Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    ERROR: muemmel1: [can not execute /usr/lib/amanda/runtar: Permission denied]
    Client check: 1 host checked in 0.239 seconds.  1 problem found.
    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.1p1)
    The amandad debug file at the client, the interesting part only
    OPTIONS features=ffffffff9ffeffffffff7f;
    OK sdb2
    OK sdb2
    OK /
    ERROR [can not execute /usr/lib/amanda/runtar: Permission denied]
    OK /bin/tar executable
    OK /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists/. read/writable
    OK /usr/bin/gzip executable
    OK /dev/null read/writable
    OK /tmp/amanda has more than 64KB available.
    OK /tmp/amanda has more than 64KB available.
    OK /etc has more than 64KB available.
    And now: important: the amanda version on a PC with an INTEL Processor works fine, this error happens only an a PC with an AMD Processor. Both PCs are identically in the amanda configuration and before online-update all went well.
    amanda@muemmel1:/var/log> ll /usr/lib/amanda/runtar
    -rwsr-x--- 1 root amanda 10776 21. Jan 00:47 /usr/lib/amanda/runtar
    At last I downgraded to the previous version of the amanda package: amanda- The failure still exists.
    So I believe, this is not an amanda problem but rather there is a faulty system library amanda uses. But how to figure out that?
    Any hints? Wilfried
    This is a cross posting. I posted this 5.2.10 at [URL=""][/URL] but without success.

    Does amanda user belong to amanda group?

    Check the xinetd configuration on both machines. The group line should have
    correct group.
