Description of problem:
I can't backup my mail server with amanda
At an random time the backup of my mail server just stop.
The other partition of the mail that wasn't backuped won't be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch the amdump on the server
Actual Results: Got a message that the it can't connect to the client for some
Expected Results: It should have backuped all partition i told him to do
I have some partition that succeeded.
When i look more carefully at the last one who succeed i see that
the corresponding amanda daemon is in defunct mode.
Then it seems that it s him who block the whole backup.
its parent is xinetd and then i restart xinetd by hand it exit cleanly
and i can backup again my server.
THat s not really an issue as my backup are made during night time.
Seems that there s a problem with the child of this amandad
this bug look like the 49132 bug if xinetd is the culprit
