Solution: Please look through your old inetd configuration files for errors and service entries that belong to previous amanda installations and are no longer valid

Location: The location of such files varies depending on you operating system, but most common places to look are:

/etc/xinetd.conf #Configuration file
/etc/inetd.conf  #Configuration file
/etc/xinetd.d    #Configuration directory containing configuration files
