Description John Dalbec 2001-11-15 11:24:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
When dumper tries to dump the / and /var partitions on my system it dies.  The obvious common factors are that both partitions are ext2 
(dumped using tar) and have reiserfs partitions mounted on subdirectories (/home and /var/spool/mail).

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create / as ext2, /home as reiserfs.
2. Change disklist to "localhost / root-tar".
3. Run amdump.
	

Actual Results:  dumper dies trying to dump /

Expected Results:  dumper should dump filesystem

Additional info:

I tried running the 'gtar' command from /tmp/amanda/sendbackup*.debug and piping it to /dev/null.  This completed with no problems, so 
it 
doesn't seem like a problem with tar.  The latest amanda report is attached.  The "could not connect" messages seem to be a firewall 
issue.  Amanda seems to expect all ports >32768 to be open.  I'm using the Bastille-Linux firewall script so this is not true here.

These dumps were to tape DailySet100.
The next tape Amanda expects to use is: a new tape.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-11-15 11:33:40 EST
It works if you use a supported filesystem?
Comment 2 John Dalbec 2001-11-15 16:36:07 EST
Bastille Linux is a great way to break^H^H^H^H^Hsecure a Linux system...especially if you let it limit file sizes to 100MB. :-(
Sorry for your trouble.
