amanda can't handle 'LABEL=' from (/etc/fstab)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:42 EDT
When using amanda with dump (always-full) amcheck complains wth the
ERROR: localhost [can not access LABEL=/var (/var): no such file or
the /etc/amanda/test/disklist contains the following
localhost /var always-full
also tested with:
localhost sda9 always-full
then the following error occurs:
ERROR: localhost [can not access sda9 (sda9): no such file or directory
Editing /etc/fstab and not using the new-fangled LABEL=... syntax is a
Otherwise I should have a fix pretty soon ...
This is a problem in how glibc's getfsent work, and I think this should be fixed
rather than making a kludge in amanda ( (the "getfsent.c" file ;) and probably
other backup programs too...). Jakub, what's your opinion?
Can you try the 2.4.2p1-1 RPMs from http://people.redhat.com/teg/ ? amcheck
seems to work now...
I've asked on libc-hacker and the responses were getfsent should not
be kept as is.
Which getfsent needs fixing? The one in glibc or the one in amanda? (which
basically calls the glibc one, but does different things on some other platforms)
I don't have access to such an old system or glibc anymore. The getfsent()in
the current glibc returns te label plus mount point in fs_spec. This is what I
expect. I also assume that amanda handles this fine these days. Otherwise we
would have gotten more and more recent reports like this.
No reply in almost 6 months. Reopen if this is a problem in a supported product.
