Removing Amanda Community Edition client
1. This command queries rpm for the name of the amanda package installed

[root@vmclientupgrade client]# rpm -q amanda-backup_client
amanda-backup_client-2.5.0b2-4.fc4

2. This command removes the Community Edition rpm

[root@vmclientupgrade client]# rpm -e amanda-backup_client-2.5.0b2-4.fc4

3. Please remove the old amanda service definition residing in /etc/xinetd.d

cd /etc/xinetd.d/
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   290 Apr 27 14:42 amandaclient
[root@vmclientupgrade xinetd.d]# rm amandaclient
rm: remove regular file `amandaclient'? y
[root@vmclientupgrade xinetd.d]#


Install the Enterprise Edition client
1. Locate and install the enterprise version of the client

[root@vmclientupgrade client]# ls
amanda_enterprise-backup_client-2.5.0-1.fc4.i386.rpm
[root@vmclientupgrade client]# rpm -ivh amanda_enterprise-backup_client-2.5.0-1.fc4.i386.rpm

Verifying the the ugrade was succesfull
1. Run an amcheck from the backup server to test communication between the client and server

-sh-3.00$ amcheck test
Amanda Tape Server Host Check

-sh-3.00$

2. Run a test restore from the client using amrecover

[root@vmclientupgrade restore]# pwd
/restore
[root@vmclientupgrade restore]# amrecover test -t vmserverupgrade.zmanda.com -s vmserverupgrade.zmanda.com
