The CONFIG parameter to amidxtaped is now required; this means that versions of amrecover older than 2.. 4.. 3 will be unable to recover from servers running Amanda-3.. 2 and later.. The new dumptype and global parameters 'recovery-limit' can be used to limit which hosts may recover from a particular DLE.. See amanda.. conf(5) and amanda-auth(7) for more information..

Amvault is much improved, but still experimental:.. supports assembling split parts on the source volume and re-splitting them on the destination.. supports filtering dumps with the same syntax as amfetchdump.. a --fulls-only option skips all incremental dumps on the source.. an --export option tries to move tertiary volumes to import/export slots when completed.. command-line syntax has changed incompatibly; see manpage or 'amvault --help'.. Rewritten and improved:.. amoverview.. amcheckdump.. Release Notes for the 3.. x release series:.. config.. The 'rawtapedev' keyword was removed, and the 'label_new_tapes' keyword was deprecated.. New warnings for dangerous splitting configurations.. changer.. We have many changers implementing the new changer API.. The new changers are faster, more reliable, and have many new features.. One new features is that the changer keeps track of which label is in which slot, allowing it to locate a tape faster.. But with some changers (new chg-multi or chg-robot without a barcode), it doesn't get automaticaly notified if you change the volume in a slot.. In this case, you must notify the changer of it with the 'amtape.. update' command:.. amtape DailySet1 update 3-8.. amtape DailySet1 update 3-8=.. amtape DailySet1 update 3=DailySet003.. See amanda-changers(7) for more information.. ndmp, dvdrw.. New Amanda devices - see amanda-devices(7) for more information.. amsamba.. The default amandapass file for the amsamba application is $CONFIG_DIR/amandapass, but it is /etc/amandapass for program GNUTAR.. Don't forget to move the file if you switch to the amsamba application.. ampgsql, amsuntar, amraw.. New applications to back up PostgreSQL databases, Solaris systems, and raw device files, respectively.. amtape.. Amtape's behavior has changed; see NEWS.. amrmtape.. Rewritten with new command-line interface; see NEWS.. amdevcheck.. New --label and --properties options give more information about device.. amreport..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Amanda (The Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver) Backup Software Copyright (c) 1991-1998 University of Maryland at College Park All Rights Reserved.. PLEASE NOTE: THIS SOFTWARE IS BEING MADE AVAILABLE "AS-IS".. We make no warranties that it will work for you.. As such there is no support available other than users helping each other on the Amanda mailing lists or forums.. Formal support may be available through vendors.. WHAT IS AMANDA? --------------- Amanda is a backup system designed to backup and archive many computers on a network to disk, tape changer/drive or cloud storage.. Here are some features of Amanda: * Written in C and Perl.. * Freely distributable source and executable.. University of Maryland (BSD style) license and GPL.. * Built on top of standard backup software: Unix dump/restore, GNU Tar and other archival tools.. It is extensible to support new archival applications.. * Open file and tape formats.. If necessary, you can use standard tools like mt and GNU Tar to recover data.. * Backs up 32 and 64 bit Windows machines.. * Will back up multiple machines in parallel to a holding disk.. Once a dump is complete, Amanda will copy finished dumps one by one to virtual tape on a disk or tape as fast as it can.. For example: * A 30 GB backup to virtual tape on disk may take less than 75 minutes.. * A 41GB backup to AIT5 (25MB/s transfer) may take 40 minutes of tape time.. * Maintains a catalog of files being backed up and their location on the media.. * Does tape management: e.. Amanda will not overwrite the wrong tape.. * For a restore, tells you what tapes you need, and finds the proper backup image on the tape for you.. * Supports tape changers via a generic interface.. Easily customizable to any type of tape library, carousel, robot, stacker, or virtual tape that can be controlled via the unix command line.. * Device API provides a pluggable interface to storage devices.. Bundled drivers support tapes and virtual tapes on disk, DVD-RW, RAIT, and Amazon S3.. The bundled amvault can then copy to removable media for off-site (D2D2T) or cloud storage (D2D2C).. * Supports secure communication between server and client using OpenSSH, allowing secure backup of machines in a DMZ or out in the Internet.. * Can encrypt backup archives on Amanda client or on Amanda server using GPG or any encryption program.. * Can compress backup archives before sending or after sending over the network, with compress, gzip or a custom program.. * Supports Kerberos 5 security, including encrypted dumps.. * Recovers gracefully from errors, including down or hung machines.. * Reports results in detail, including all errors, via email.. * Dynamically adjusts the backup schedule to keep within constraints: no more juggling by hand when adding disks and computers to your network.. * Backup normalization: Amanda schedules full and incremental backups so you don't have to, and so as to spread the load across the backup cycle.. Amanda will intelligently promote a backup level in case it is determines that is optimal for resources.. * Includes a pre-run checker program, that conducts sanity checks on both the tape server host and all the client hosts (in parallel), and will send an e-mail report of any problems that could cause the backups to fail.. * IPv6 friendly.. * Runs transparently from cron as  ...   On the other hand, if those terabyte drives are partitioned into 50 GB filesystems, they'll probably compress down to 25 GB and you'll only need that much on your holding disk.. Amanda will perform better with larger holding disks.. Actually, Amanda will still work if you have full dumps that are larger than the holding disk: Amanda will send those dumps directly to tape one at a time.. If you have many such dumps you will be limited by the dump speed of those machines.. WHAT SYSTEMS DOES AMANDA RUN ON? -------------------------------- Amanda should run on any modern Unix system that supports dump or GNU tar, has sockets and inetd (or a replacement such as xinetd), and either system V shared memory, or BSD mmap implemented.. In particular, Amanda has been compiled, and the client side tested on the following systems: AIX 3.. 2 and 4.. 1 BSDI BSD/OS 2.. 1 and 3.. 1 DEC OSF/1 3.. 0 FreeBSD 6, 7 and 8 GNU/Linux 2.. 6 on x86, m68k, alpha, sparc, arm and powerpc HP-UX 9.. x and 10.. x (x >= 01) IRIX 6.. 2 and up NetBSD 1.. 0 Nextstep 3 (*) OpenBSD 2.. 5 x86, sparc, etc (ports available) Solaris 10 Ultrix 4.. 2 Mac OS X 10 Windows: XP Pro (Server pack 2), 2003 server, Vista, 2008 server R2, Windows 7 (*) (*) The Amanda server side is known to run on all of the other machines except on those marked with an asterisk.. Backup operations can be CPU and Memory intensive (e.. for compression and encryption operations).. It is recommended that you have a server class CPU in the backup server.. WHERE DO I GET AMANDA? ---------------------- Amanda, including its source tree, is on SourceForge: http://sourceforge.. net/projects/amanda Or see http://www.. org/download.. php Most Linux distributions include amanda rpms or debian packages pre-built for various architectures.. Pre-built binaries are also available at: http://www.. php HOW DO I GET AMANDA UP AND RUNNING? ----------------------------------- Read the file docs/INSTALL.. There are a variety of steps, from compiling Amanda to installing it on the backup server host and the client machines.. docs/INSTALL contains general installation instructions.. docs/NEWS details new features in each release..

  • Title: AMANDA Patches
    Descriptive info: The AMANDA Patches Page.. This page contains a list of important patches to some of the older releases of AMANDA.. Please be aware of the fact that the current release of AMANDA is 2.. 1p2 or higher, so think twice about applying some old patch.. We, the AMANDA Core Team, strongly recommend to update to the latest stable release !!!.. The links below contain pointers to messages posted to the AMANDA mailing lists.. Please read the messages for additional information on the problems they fix and any additional action you must take for the patch to work.. You may use GNU patch in order to apply these patches.. It is available at.. the GNU anonymous FTP site.. or at any of its mirrors, in a file named.. patch-.. release-number.. tar.. gz.. Most patches are.. application/x-patch.. MIME attachments of messages posted to AMANDA mailing lists, and this is the recommended form of posting patches, because such patches can be downloaded directly from the archives (not as of May 23, but eGroups is working to fix the problem).. Some have been included in the mail text, so you have to click on the.. Source.. button and save the page.. With a bit of luck, you'll be able to use the.. html.. file as input for.. patch.. , but it may require some tweaking.. If you cut and paste a patch file from the browser window, make sure to run.. patch -l.. so that the patch program does not get confused because of differences of tabs and spaces.. A.. -p0.. or.. -p1.. switch has become almost mandatory in latest releases of GNU patch; if you don't issue a.. -p.. switch, patch may guess incorrectly the file to patch, and you'll get rejected junks for files such as.. INSTALL.. and.. Makefile.. am.. For applying a patch that contain.. Index:.. lines, setting the environment variable.. POSIXLY_CORRECT.. before running the patch command may help getting the patch applied without human intervention.. Thanks to.. ">Evan Champion.. for pointing this out.. A detailed explanation of why this helps can be found in the GNU patch man-page.. Patches for older releases are no longer listed here.. Patches for AMANDA 2.. 5.. amanda-2.. 5-amoverview.. patch.. : This patch by.. Orion Poplawski.. adds new options to amoverview to toggle new output-columns.. The patch also includes additions to the amoverview-manpage.. 5-planner_incrlargerthantape.. Paul Bijnens.. solves the problem that  ...   that tar-files produced before this patch are still usable, as the problems addressed by this patch are in the restore code only.. The problem is already fixed in Samba 2.. sambatar.. : Samba 1.. 9.. 18p5 up to 1.. 18p10 will print messages to stdout, even when asked to create a tar-file and write to stdout.. Since AMANDA asks SAMBA to create tar-files to stdout, if you do not apply this patch in SAMBA, your backups will be useless.. Problem reported by.. "> Ronny Blomme.. According to.. Todd Pfaff.. , this problem is fixed in Samba 2.. samba-gtar.. 18p4 (and probably previous 1.. 18 versions) won't read tar-files with gnutar-style long filenames, even ones produced by itself.. Patch by.. ">Rob Riggs.. Fixed in Samba 1.. 18p5.. (Apr 12, 1998).. Samba 1.. 17 and higher will print incorrect size information for large (> 2GB) filesystems on hosts whose ints are 32bits.. If your C compiler supports `.. unsigned long long.. 's and.. printf().. supports ".. %llu.. " for printing them, you should apply.. , available in AMANDA distributions since release 2.. 0b5.. Anyway, beware large SMB filesystems: some MS-Windows hosts were reported (in Samba mailing lists) to randomly corrupt such filesystems, but then, this has nothing to do with Samba or AMANDA.. GNU tar 1.. 12: there are two known problems (described below) that can be fixed by applying.. tar-1.. 12.. On SunOS 4.. 3, HP/UX and possibly other systems, GNU tar 1.. 12 will report incorrect output sizes, because printf does not understand ".. ".. 12 would report.. Bad file number.. error messages at estimate-time for sparse files.. 13: even though the second problem in release 1.. 12 is already fixed in 1.. 13, the other is only partially fixed.. Besides, there are a couple of other problems in release 1.. 13, related with exclude patterns and.. restoring.. , so its use is not recommended.. Hopefully, all of these problems will be fixed in GNU tar 1.. 14.. If you want to use something past 1.. 12,.. 1.. 13.. 25.. appears to be stable.. 18: This.. fixes two problems in tar-1.. 18:.. A workaround for a bug in fnmatch from glibc.. A bug that can cause a core dump.. This page is maintained by the AMANDA Core Development Team.. Please report changes and/or additions to the.. ">AMANDA-hackers.. mailing list.. Last updated: $Date: 2010/03/16 17:23:21 $..
