    Default Amrecover Errors

    Hello all,

    I have almost everything up and running but when I try to run amrecover from a RHEL4 box I get this message:

    AMRECOVER Version 2.5.2p1. Contacting server on ...
    [couldn't open MESG streams]

    What does this mean? I couldn't find ANY posts on this message.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Likely /etc/xinetd.d/amandaserver is not set up properly

    Also check /etc/amanda/amanda-client.conf

    Default Found my problem


    I looked and looked and couldn't find anything wrong with my configuration. amrecover just insisted to spew out the dreaded

    [couldn't open MESG streams]

    message. Out of desperation, I shut down iptables. That didn't help. Next, I change SELinux to Permissive mode. Lo-and-behold -- it works! I guess there must be some SELinux configuration I am missing. But at least there is a temporary work-around for now.
