DESCRIPTION

After Amanda rpms are successfully installed, amserverconfig will setup initial Amanda configuration files. It will create /var/lib/amanda/guntar-lists directory if one does not exist. amserverconfig does not change existing Amanda configurations. amserverconfig must be run by user amandabackup.

OPTIONS

Options may be abbreviated, as long as the abbreviation is not ambiguous. Option argument can either separated by ’=’ or a space.

 Example:  --templ=harddisk --tapedev /dev/nst0

amserverconfig builds a new "config" Amanda configuration. Customize the configuration with the options below.

--template template
