Error MessageCan’t switch to incremental dump
This failure message can be caused by any of the following conditions:
Fix the problem with the device that is causing Amanda to revert to “degraded” mode. You can also set the reserve for incrementals to something less than %100 if you wish to have Amanda attempt a full backup to holding disk in case of device failure. If the message is being generated because an incremental backup can’t be performed because of No Incremental set on the Backup| What Advanced setting or Full set in the Backup| When page, consider changing those options to allow an incremental to run.
