    Question HELP! Changer problem: could not read result from "/usr/lib/amanda/chg-disk": Success

    Hello,

    I am all new to Amanda and I am using the 2.6 version with web console.
    What I want to do is to backup a directory c:/temp on Windows PC called "w99.kanzlei".

    So I first installed the windows client on the PC. This worked all fine and I defined a backup set on the Linux (FC6) server called "w99.kanzlei" with this one directory to backup.

    The "Verify" checks on the web console say everything is ok, but when I do a amcheck on the prompt it says:

    sh-3.1$ amcheck w99.kanzlei
    Amanda Tape Server Host Check
    -----------------------------
    Changer problem: could not read result from "/usr/lib/amanda/chg-disk": Success
    changer problem: could not read result from "/usr/lib/amanda/chg-disk": Success (expecting a new tape)
    NOTE: host info dir /etc/amanda/w99.kanzlei/curinfo/w99.kanzlei does not exist
    NOTE: it will be created on the next run.
    NOTE: index dir /etc/amanda/w99.kanzlei/index/w99.kanzlei does not exist
    NOTE: it will be created on the next run.
    Server check took 0.011 seconds

    Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    --------------------------------
    Client check: 1 host checked in 0.219 seconds. 0 problems found.

    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.0)


    When I now launch a backup, it says:

    What is this "changer problem"?
    I am using the template "HARDDISK", without a holding disk.

    the /etc/amanda/w99.kanzlei/amanda.conf looks like this:

    org "w99.kanzlei" # your organization name for reports
    mailto "amandabackup" # space separated list of operators at your site
    dumpcycle 1 week # the number of days in the normal dump cycle
    runspercycle 5 # the number of amdump runs in dumpcycle days
    # (4 weeks * 5 amdump runs per week -- just weekdays)
    tapecycle 25 tapes # the number of tapes in rotation
    # 4 weeks (dumpcycle) times 5 tapes per week (just
    # the weekdays) plus a few to handle errors that
    # need amflush and so we do not overwrite the full
    # backups performed at the beginning of the previous
    # cycle
    runtapes 1 # number of tapes to be used in a single run of amdump
    tpchanger "chg-disk" # the tape-changer glue script
    tapedev "file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/w99.kanzlei" # the no-rewind tape device to be used
    changerfile "/etc/amanda/w99.kanzlei/changer.conf"
    changerdev "/dev/null"
    tapetype HARDDISK # what kind of tape it is
    labelstr "^w99.kanzlei-[0-9][0-9]*$" # label constraint regex: all tapes must match
    dtimeout 1800 # number of idle seconds before a dump is aborted.
    ctimeout 30 # maximum number of seconds that amcheck waits
    # for each client host
    etimeout 300 # number of seconds per filesystem for estimates.

    define dumptype global {
    comment "Global definitions"
    auth "bsdtcp"
    }

    define dumptype gui-base {
    global
    program "GNUTAR"
    comment "gui base dumptype dumped with tar"
    compress none
    index yes
    }

    includefile "./advanced.conf"
    includefile "/etc/amanda/template.d/dumptypes"
    includefile "/etc/amanda/template.d/tapetypes"

    What am I doing wrong here?

    Thank you in advance
