Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver (Server)

Amanda is a backup system designed to archive many computers on a network to a single large-capacity tape drive. This package is suitable for large amounts of data to backup. For smaller solutions take a look at afbackup, tob, ...

Features: * will back up multiple machines in parallel to a holding disk, blasting finished dumps one by one to tape as fast as we can write files to tape. For example, a ~2 Gb 8mm tape on a ~240K/s interface to a host with a large holding disk can be filled by Amanda in under 4 hours. * built on top of standard backup software: Unix dump/restore, and later GNU Tar and others. * does simple tape management: will not overwrite the wrong tape. * supports tape changers via a generic interface. Easily customizable to any type of tape carousel, robot, or stacker that can be controlled via the unix command line. * for a restore, tells you what tapes you need, and finds the proper backup image on the tape for you. * recovers gracefully from errors, including down or hung machines. * reports results, including all errors in detail, in email to operators. * will dynamically adjust backup schedule to keep within constraints: no more juggling by hand when adding disks and computers to network. * 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. * can compress dumps before sending or after sending over the net, with either compress or gzip. * can optionally synchronize with external backups, for those large timesharing computers where you want to do full dumps when the system is down in single-user mode (since BSD dump is not reliable on active filesystems): Amanda will still do your daily dumps. * lots of other options; Amanda is very configurable.

For important notes, see /usr/share/doc/amanda-server/README.Debian.

Explanation of suggested programs: - perl is needed for some non essential server utilities - gnuplot is needed for plotting statistics of backups - to backup the tape server, you need to install the client too

amanda for DEBIAN

Since every Amanda installation is different, there is some work you need to
do to configure your server.  For a simple setup, as root you need to:

1. Create a directory under /etc/amanda for your backup config, we'll assume
   a name 'DailySet1' as our example.

	mkdir /etc/amanda/DailySet1

   Make sure that /etc/amanda and all the files under it are owner a

amanda (1:3.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

  As of version 3.3.0, Amanda now uses bsdtcp as the default auth method, 
  and the package postinst scripts install a suitable inetd entry.  

  You may need to update existing amanda.conf files to reflect this change, 
  as such configs are often hand-crafted to meet site expectations.

  You may also need to adjust inetd or xinetd configs to include bo
