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.
The "amandad" program is run from the "amanda" file.
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.
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
file list for amanda-client - should have /etc/xinetd.d/amanda in there
Hmm... it's part of amanda-server. It would probably make sense to move it to
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.
amandaidx on client or server?
idx should be in server.
Should be fixed in 2.4.2-3, building now, coming soon to a Rawhide near you.
