Updated amanda packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup server to back up multiple hosts to one or more tape drives or disk files.
- Previously, the amandad daemon, which is required for successful running of AMANDA, was located in the amanda-client package; however, this package was not required during installation of the amanda-server package. Consequently, AMANDA did not work properly. The amanda-client package has been added to the amanda-server dependencies and AMANDA works correctly now.
All AMANDA users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
