Description Robert Wehner 2004-10-15 17:30:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2

Description of problem:
amcheck produces and error when the backup config has the manual tape
changer script enabled.:
amcheck-server: could not get changer info: badly formed result from
changer: "/usr/lib/amanda/chg-manual: line 33: -E: command not found"

Line 33 is:
EGREP=grep -E

It this is quoted, amcheck will work:
EGREP="grep -E"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
amanda-server-2.4.4p1-0.3E

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install amanda-server and amanda RPMS
2. Configure Amanda normally (disklist, tapelist, amanda.conf). Be
sure that you have the following in your amanda.conf:
tpchanger "chg-manual"
changerfile "/var/lib/amanda/<conf_name>/changer"
/var/lib/amanda/<conf_name>/changer should be the alternative "email"
request() function as written in /usr/lib/amanda/chg-manual (commented
out).
3. run amcheck -m <conf_name> as amanda
    

Actual Results:  Amanda emails out a report. The amanda-server section
of the report will show this error:
amcheck-server: could not get changer info: badly formed result from
changer: "/usr/lib/amanda/chg-manual: line 33: -E: command not found"


Expected Results:  /usr/lib/amanda/chg-manual should not produce a
command not found error causing amcheck to report an Amanda problem.
(probably amdump will also fail due to this, though I have not tried
that.)

I've put test rpms of amanda*-2.4.4p1-0.3E.1.{src,i386}.rpm up on 
http://people.redhat.com/fenlason/.amanda/  Please try them out and report 
whether they fix this problem. 
Comment 6 Robert Wehner 2005-08-04 16:16:22 EDT
The new RPMs work for me. Thanks and sorry for the dealy in testing these out.
