Upgrading 2.4.5 community edition Client to 2.5 Enterprise Client

Table of contents
No headers

Create a directory called /amandamove to hold amanda files during the upgrade:
[root@vmclientcomm /]# mkdir /amandamove

Run this command on the backup server to determine where the gnutar-lists are placed on the client:

-sh-3.00$ amadmin x version  | grep listed_incr_dir
      listed_incr_dir="/usr/local/var/amanda/gnutar-lists"

Tar up the gnutar-lists usually located in /usr/local/var/amanda in to the /amandamove directory:

[root@vmclientcomm gnutar-lists]# pwd
/usr/local/var/amanda/gnutar-lists
[root@vmclientcomm gnutar-lists]# ls
vmclientcomm.zmanda.com_boot_1.new
[root@vmclientcomm gnutar-lists]# tar -cvf /amandamove/gnutar_list.tar *
vmclientcomm.zmanda.com_boot_1.new

Copy the /var/lib/amanda/.amandahost to /amandamove:

[root@vmclientcomm amanda]# cp /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts /amandamove

Remove the old user amanda from the passwd and shadow files:

[root@vmservercomm ~]# cat /etc/passwd | grep amanda
amanda:x:501:6::/var/lib/amanda:/bin/bash
[root@vmservercomm ~]# cat /etc/shadow | grep amanda
amanda:!!:13276:0:99999:7:::

Remove the old user amanda from the groups:

disk:x:6:root,amanda

Remove the old amanda xinetd files:

[root@vmservercomm ~]# cd /etc/xinetd.d
[root@vmservercomm xinetd.d]# ls | grep amanda
amanda
[root@vmservercomm xinetd.d]# rm amanda
rm: remove regular file `amanda'? y

Remove these amanda directories:

[root@vmclientcomm /]# rm -rf /usr/local/var/amanda
[root@vmclientcomm /]# rm -rf /var/lib/amanda
[root@vmclientcomm /]# rm -rf /tmp/amanda
[root@vmclientcomm sbin]# rm /usr/local/sbin/amrecover

Install the enterprise client rpm:

[root@vmclientcomm client]# rpm -ivh amanda_enterprise-backup_client-2.5.0int9-1.fc4.i386.rpm
warning: amanda_enterprise-backup_client-2.5.0int9-1.fc4.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 3c5d1c92

Untar the gnutar_list from the /amandamove in to /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists:

[root@vmclientcomm gnutar-lists]# pwd
/var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists
[root@vmclientcomm gnutar-lists]# tar -vxf /amandamove/gnutar_list.tar
vmclientcomm.zmanda.com_boot_1.new

Copy the .amandahost file from /amandamove to the /var/lib/amanda directory:

[root@vmclientcomm amandamove]# cp /amandamove/.amandahosts /var/lib/amanda/
cp: overwrite `/var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts'? y

Edit the /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts file to change all amanda user entries to amandabackup:

vmservercomm.zmanda.com amandabackup

Change the ownership to amandabackup:

[root@vmclientcomm amandamove]# chown -R amandabackup:disk  /var/lib/amanda

Run a test restore using amrecover:

[root@vmclientcomm restore]# amrecover test -t vmservercomm -s vmservercomm
