    Default Unable to Start Over from slot1!

    Hi to all, I have been trying to set up a backup with a Full backup every Week and an incremental every day. Using:
    dumpcycle 7 days
    runspercycle 5
    tapecycle 6 tapes

    For this I have Virtual tapes, like this: /backup/Saruman/slots/slot1...slot6

    The thing That I have been trying is to reset the tape using:
    - amtape Saruman reset

    After that the symbolic link for data links to slot1. but after doing an:
    - amcheck Saruman

    The symbolic links goes back to slot6.

    I have deleted all the files in /etc/amanda/Saruman/ (except disklist and amanda.conf) but nothing, it always goes back to slot6.

    What else can I do, I'm planing to put amanda in production this Sunday.

    Any help will be really appreciated.
