    Default Missing /etc/amanda-security.conf into amanda client DEB package

    Hello,
    installing the Amanda Client 3.3.9 for Ubuntu .DEB does not provide the "amanda-security.conf" file.

    Can you check it?

    Thank you.
    Best Regards

    It should be under /etc/amanda/

    I have looked in Amanda Client 3.3.9 and Amanda Server 3.3.9 in the deb-packages for Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04 and 14.10, and I even looked into the tarball of Amanda 3.3.9. No amanda-security.conf in any of them, just the man-page (amanda-security.conf.5.gz)

    root@example:/tmp# dpkg -c ./amanda-backup-server_3.3.9-1Ubuntu1404_amd64.deb | grep sec
    -rw-r--r-- root/root 1284 2016-02-09 23:52 ./usr/share/man/man5/amanda-security.conf.5.gz

    Hi,

    You were looking at an UB 64bit server package.
    Please try a client package.

    dpkg -c amanda-enterprise-backup-client_3.3.9-1Ubuntu1404_i386.deb|grep sec
    -rw-r--r-- root/root 1285 2016-02-09 18:16 ./usr/share/man/man5/amanda-security.conf.5.gz
    -rw-rw---- amandabackup/disk 1992 2016-02-09 18:16 ./etc/amanda/amanda-security.conf

    dpkg -c amanda-enterprise-backup-client_3.3.9-1Ubuntu1204_i386.deb|grep sec
    -rw-rw---- amandabackup/disk 1992 2016-02-09 18:11 ./etc/amanda/amanda-security.conf
    -rw-r--r-- root/root 1285 2016-02-09 18:11 ./usr/share/man/man5/amanda-security.conf.5.gz

    dpkg -c amanda-enterprise-backup-client_3.3.9-1Ubuntu1410_i386.deb|grep sec
    -rw-r--r-- root/root 1285 2016-02-09 18:10 ./usr/share/man/man5/amanda-security.conf.5.gz
    -rw-rw---- amandabackup/disk 1993 2016-02-09 18:10 ./etc/amanda/amanda-security.conf

    You are right, the file is not in the debian package.
    You can create an empty /etc/amanda-security.conf file, it works if you use the default compiled path.

    Hi,

    I am trying both client and server (32 and 64bit) packages downloaded from http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php

    The file amanda-backup-client_3.3.9-1Ubuntu1404_i386.deb does not even include amanda-security.conf.5.gz

    I see you are referring to some enterprise packages, but when I go to the homepage (amanda.org), click "Download" and then choose the "Binary packages" option, I am sent to http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php

    Sitron_NO,
    That's my mistake. I didn't use the correct package.
    Please do the change as Jean-Louis' comment. #5

    Thanks for reporting the issue. We will be adding security.conf to the packages with next release. Please use the workaround mentioned in this thread for current packages.
