    Default Windows Client Fails selfcheck with ACK warning

    I have been search for the reason for the warning message. I have not been able to figure out what I am missing. I have reviewed and double checked most of the settings. Here are some of my files.

    Client Side
    inetd.conf
    amanda stream tcp nowait amandabackup /usr/lib/amanda/amandad.exe amandad -auth=bsdtcp amdump amindexd amidxtaped

    .amandahosts
    sd-lnsrv02.vfz.lab amandabackup amindexd amidxtaped

    amanda-client.conf
    conf "DailySet1"
    auth "bsdtcp"
    index_server "sd-lnsrv02.vfz.lab"
    tape_server "sd-lnsrv02.vfz.lab"

    Server Side
    .amandahosts
    localhost root amindexd amidxtaped
    localhost amandabackup
    localhost.localdomain root amindexd amidxtaped
    localhost.localdomain amandabackup
    #sdspdxr3.vfz.lab root amindexd amidxtaped
    sdspdxr3.vfz.lab amandabackup amindexd amidxtaped
    sd-lnsrv02 amandabackup amdump
    sd-lnsrv02 root amindexd amdixtaped

    disklist
    sdspdxr3.vfz.lab D:\ hard-disk-tar
    sd-lnsrv02 /boot hard-disk-dump


    Let me know if there is any other information that can help

    Hi Gary,
    Your client side amandahost should be like this:
    sd-lnsrv02.vfz.lab amandabackup amdump

    The format is:
    <amanda-server-name> <backup-user-on-the-server> <service-to-which-access-is-given>

    So on the client side there is no service of amindexd or amidxtaped available, this services are only applicable for server's amandahost file.

    Disklist entry consisting diskdev as "D:\" might not work sometimes. If it doesnt works, please try "/cygwin/d/".

    Hope this helps,

    Regards,
    Sachin

    I changed the amandahosts on the client side to match what Sachin said it should be. I still get the same issue.

    Thanks Sachin for helping.

    Hi Gary,

    Is your dns configured, are your server and client able to ping each other with fqdn?

    Please go through these articles:

    I had a similar problem today while switching from a samba based backup to the Windows client.
    Using tcpdump I noticed that the server was using UDP to connect to the client, while the inetd.conf on the client was set up to listen for TCP connections.

    Adding auth "bsdtcp" to the dumptype definition solved the problem for me.
