Look for and take note of these directory paths in the amanda.conf file:

logdir "/var/lib/amanda/test"
infofile "/var/lib/amanda/test/curinfo"
indexdir "/var/lib/amanda/test/index"
tapelist "/var/lib/amanda/test/tapelist"

Find out where the amanda home directory is located:

-bash-3.00$ cat /etc/passwd | grep amanda
amanda:x:33:6:Amanda user:/var/lib/amanda:/bin/bash

Make a list of all the amanda directories and files that will be affected on the upgrade:

bindir             /usr/bin 
sbindir            /usr/sbin                             
libexecdir         /usr/lib/amanda                                                  
AMANDA_DBGDIR      /var/log/amanda                         
CONFIG_DIR         /etc/amanda                    
listed_incr_dir    /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists 
logdir             /var/lib/amanda/test
infofile           /var/lib/amanda/test/curinfo
indexdir           /var/lib/amanda/test/index
tapelist           /var/lib/amanda/test/tapelist
tapedev            file:/space/vtapes/test/slots
changerfile        /var/lib/amanda/test/changerfile
holding disk path  /space/amandahold/test

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 group disk in /etc/group file:

disk:x:6:root,amanda

Create a temporary directory called /amandamove for amanda files to to copied to while upgrading:

mkdir /amandamove

Tar up the files and dirs containing the logs, curinfo, indexdir and tapelist in to the /amandamove directory:

[root@vmredhatserver tmp]# cd /var/lib/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# tar -cvf /amandamove/index_curinfo.tar *

test/curinfo/vmredhatclient.zmanda.com/_boot/
test/curinfo/vmredhatclient.zmanda.com/_boot/info
test/tapelist.yesterday
test/changerfile-clean

Tar up the files and dirs containing all the amanda config files in to the /amandamove directory:

[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# cd /etc/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# tar -cvf /amandamove/amanda_config.tar *
crontab.sample
DailySet1/
DailySet1/disklist
DailySet1/amanda.conf
test/
test/disklist
test/amanda.conf

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

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

Determine what amanda rpm packages are already installed:

[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]# rpm -q amanda
amanda-2.4.5-2
[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]# rpm -q amanda-server
amanda-server-2.4.5-2
[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]# rpm -q amanda-client
package amanda-client is not installed

Unistall the original Redhat amanda rpm:

[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]# rpm -e amanda-server-2.4.5-2
warning: /etc/xinetd.d/amidxtape saved as /etc/xinetd.d/amidxtape.rpmsave
warning: /etc/xinetd.d/amandaidx saved as /etc/xinetd.d/amandaidx.rpmsave
[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]# rpm -e amanda-2.4.5-2
warning: /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts saved as /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts.rpmsave
[root@vmredhatserver ppragin]#

Remove the old amanda xinetd files:

[root@vmredhatserver xinetd.d]# cd /etc/xinetd.d
[root@vmredhatserver xinetd.d]# ls -al | grep am
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   229 May 10 09:44 amandaidx.rpmsave
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   232 May 10 09:44 amidxtape.rpmsave
[root@vmredhatserver xinetd.d]# rm amandaidx.rpmsave amidxtape.rpmsave
rm: remove regular file `amandaidx.rpmsave'? y
rm: remove regular file `amidxtape.rpmsave'? y
[root@vmredhatserver xinetd.d]#

Remove the old amanda directories:

[root@vmredhatserver /]# rm -rf /var/lib/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver /]# rm -rf /etc/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver /]# rm -rf /var/log/amanda

Install the amanda enterprise rpm:

[root@vmredhatserver server]# rpm -ih amanda_enterprise-backup_server-2.5.0-1.fc4.i386.rpm

Extract the amanda config files from /amandamove in to /etc/amanda:

[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# cd /etc/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# tar -vxf /amandamove/amanda_config.tar
crontab.sample
DailySet1/
DailySet1/disklist
DailySet1/amanda.conf
test/
test/disklist
test/amanda.conf

Extract the amanda logs, curinfo, indexdir and taplist from /amandamove in to /usr/lib/amanda:

[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# cd /var/lib/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# tar -vxf /amandamove/index_curinfo.tar

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

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

Change onwership on the following amanda directories:

[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# chown -R amandabackup:disk /var/lib/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# chown -R amandabackup:disk /etc/amanda
[root@vmredhatserver amanda]# chown -R amandabackup:disk /space

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

vmredhatclient.zmanda.com root
vmredhatclient.zmanda.com amandabackup

Edit the amanda.conf file in /etc/amanda/test/amanda.conf and change the user entry from amanda to amandabackup:

dumpuser "amandabackup" 

Run amcheck on the configuration to see if the upgrade is complete (the error below is expected if you havent upgraded the client yet):

sh-3.00$ amcheck test
