Description Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 22:16:47 UTC
amanda-client does not have an /etc/xinetd.d/amandad file and it needs to
otherwise amanda-client will not work.

Add this file, please.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 22:27:04 UTC
The "amandad" program is run from the "amanda" file.

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 22:31:30 UTC
when I installed amanda and amanda-client I don't have the daemon entry to
start the client software as I need - so something is not right.
the correct entry looks like this

# default: off
# description:  The client for the Amanda backup system.\
#               This must be on for systems being backed up\
#               by Amanda.

service amanda
        disable = no
        socket_type             = dgram
        protocol                = udp
        wait                    = yes
        user                    = operator
        group                   = disk
        server                  = /usr/lib/amanda/amandad

that is what is needed for the amanda-client to work

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 22:36:10 UTC

file list for amanda-client - should have /etc/xinetd.d/amanda in there
it doesn't.

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 22:51:56 UTC
Hmm... it's part of amanda-server. It would probably make sense to move it to
amanda-client... agreed?

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 22:56:10 UTC
yes - that keeps me from having to install amanda-server on my backup'd clients.


y'all are responding incredibly fast and I really appreciate it.

Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 23:05:39 UTC
amandaidx on client or server?

Comment 7 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 23:55:04 UTC
idx should be in server.

Comment 8 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-01 00:08:31 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.4.2-3, building now, coming soon to a Rawhide near you.
