Hello,

One of our servers failed and I ma trying to recover a folder on another server.

We are running Amanda 3.1.3 on Fedora 14 servers with virtual tapes.

The backups are running fine. I can see the latest backup from this morning in .../vtapes/slot29. The latest full backup is in .../vtapes/slot14.

I have attached and mounted a USB HDD with the backup vtapes on the working server.

When I try to read the backup tapes, Amanda sees the contents as expected:
$ amtape failedserver show
amtape: scanning all 90 slots in changer:
slot 29: date 20130225040201 label MyData28
...
slot 1: date 20130129162430 label MyData01
...
slot 28: date 20130224040201 label MyData27

However, when I try to recover the files, I get:
# amrecover failedserver

I have tried using setdevice localhost:file:/.../vtapes/slot29 before using setdisk but the result is the same.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
