[operator@predator /root]$ grep operator /etc/passwd
operator:*:11:0:operator:/root:

             ^^^

[operator@predator /root]$ grep disk /etc/group
disk::6:root

     ^^^

I thought that amanda uses operator.disk permissions...

Stelian.

The binaries that need disk GID are SGID disk

It'd be better to use a backup UID and GID, but I didn't want to change the
package too much compared to the prior version, or do patching of /etc/passwd

Comment 2 Tim Powers 2000-03-20 14:08:59 UTC
Will fix in next release. There will be an errata update for amanda, but this
won't be in it until the next release. I don't want to change amanda too much
for the 6.x releases. FYI- an errata will be out for amanda since it was
erroniously buklt without dump.
