Description Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 17:16:47 EST
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 17:27:04 EST
The "amandad" program is run from the "amanda" file.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 17:31:30 EST
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

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

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 17:51:56 EST
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 17:56:10 EST
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 18:05:39 EST
amandaidx on client or server?
Comment 7 Seth Vidal 2001-01-31 18:55:04 EST
idx should be in server.

Comment 8 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 19:08:31 EST
Should be fixed in 2.4.2-3, building now, coming soon to a Rawhide near you.
