    Unhappy Zmanda Backup Server installation Error


    Hi all,

    Today I tried to install zmanda backup server. after installation completed I issue the the following command to check

    Am getting error as follows

    The first set are only notices.
    The "No route to host" is more serious, it indicates a network or routing problem.
    See if you can ping that host 192.168.1.23 from your zmanda server?

    Also, as I have some experience with Amanda: please use FQDNs instead of IPs and make sure, that
    forward and backward DNS resolution are the same on both server and clients.

    Other than that:
    Zmanda (as I learned from amanda) is a versatile and therefore complex piece of software.
    There is no step by step solution for your usecase.

    My recommendation would be to read the documentation thoroughly, apply it to your usecase.
    And if then *specific* problems arise, you can post them here with scenario explanation please.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Check the network connectivity first, and the firewall configuration.
    Are you using Amanda Community or Amanda Enterprise? What is the version?

    forums.zmanda.com
    It is the Zmanda forum, you might get better response at there.
