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.

Bug Fix

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.
