Description Andrew Meredith 2001-09-08 15:23:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4-laptop i686)

Description of problem:
The Raw Hide version of dump has the dump binary in /usr/sbin/dump now,
where it used to be in /sbin/dump. Amanda from the same distribution points
to the old location. The same goes for /sbin/restore.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run amcheck
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:
ERROR: coliseum: [can not execute /sbin/dump: No such file or directory]
ERROR: coliseum: [can not execute /sbin/restore: No such file or directory]
ERROR: localhost: [can not execute /sbin/dump: No such file or directory]
ERROR: localhost: [can not execute /sbin/restore: No such file or
directory]


Additional info:

Under these conditions, Amanda will not back up data. This is a data
security issue.
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-09-08 16:43:26 EDT
It's not security (that's when others can gain control of resources or access to
data they should), but it needs fixing.
Comment 2 Andrew Meredith 2001-09-08 16:59:58 EDT
Depends if you use the formal definition of security as defined by (amongst
other things) the Red Hat RH253 Network and Security Course ;)

But yeah .. it doesn't let people in, but needs fixing.
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-09-08 17:24:56 EDT
Fixed in dump-0.4b22-5, which recreates these binaries
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-09-08 19:42:18 EDT
-6, actually.
