This article is for Amanda Enterprise (AE)
Amanda Enterprise uses Solaris’ Service Management Facility (SMF) to run the Zmanda Solaris Client backup service and ZMC recovery service on a Solaris client. After client installation (AE server install includes client software), these services should be able to be found using the svcs command and should be in an “online” state:
# svcs svc:/network/amandaserver/tcp:default svc:/network/zmrecover/tcp:default
STATE STIME FMRI
online Dec_23 svc:/network/amandaclient/tcp:default
online Dec_23 svc:/network/zmrecover/tcp:default
On an Amanda server, the Zmanda Solaris Client backup service name will be “svc:/network/amandaserver/tcp:default”. With AE 3.3.6 and earlier, the Zmanda Solaris Client backup service name is simply “/network/amanda/tcp:default”.
If either the backup, recovery, or both services are not in an “online” state, attempt to enable each offline service with the svcadm command, for example:
# svcadm enable svc:/network/amandaserver/tcp:default
If one or both services are still not online after the above command, please check Solaris logging and documentation to remedy the issue.
