Template files not found by amserverconfig
Last modified: 2010-08-17 01:32:45 EDT
Description of problem:
When attempting to create a base amanda configuration using the amserverconfig utility distributed as part of the F13 release, the template files cannot be found and no configuration is generated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install amanda-server and amanda-client
2. Run command "amserverconfig <config_name> --template harddisk --tapedev /data3/amanda/vtapes/<config_name> --mailto root --dumpcycle 1week --runspercycle 7 --tapecycle 16"
Receive "ERROR: copy dumptypes failed: No such file or directory". (My apologies, but this may not be the exact error message. Now that I have everything configured and working, I lost my scrollback buffer to see the exact message displayed.)
Initial configuration successfully created that I can then customize as needed.
This error is due to an incorrect path definition in the amserverconfig utility - the $templatedir variable is defined based on $amdatadir. $amdatadir is defined via Amanda::Paths as "/usr/share/amanda", which does not exist.
Based on the amanda-2.6.1p2-example.patch patch included in the SRPM, it appears that the examples were updated to show the template files installed under $(localstatedir)/lib/amanda/template.d ("/var/lib/amanda/template.d") but a similar path update was not made to amserverconfig.
amanda-2.6.1p2-4.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
