    Default Clients must have user "amandabackup"?

    Ik have setup a new amanda server with the version which was available in the repository (version 2.6.1p2). All my clients are running version 2.5.0p2 and are using user "amanda". The server uses "amandabackup".

    If i do an amcheck i receive the following message:

    WARNING: adrastea.domain.nl: selfcheck request failed: timeout waiting for ACK
    I have put in the string of the server in .amandahosts, but with the user "amandabackup". So i was wondering, does the client already need an user named "amandabackup" or can it run under "amanda"? Or do i need to update the cliŽnt to version 2.6.1p2?

    The message say nothing about username, so why do you think it is the issue?
    username do not need to be the same.

    There is no way someone call help you fix 'timeout waiting for ACK' if you don't post more information.

    Which auth are you using?
    How do you set xinetd on the client? is it serving amandad?
    Post the server and client debug log files
