NAME

       amserverconfig - program to setup initial Amanda configuration

SYNOPSIS

       amserverconfig config [--template template] [--no-vtape] [--tapetype tapetype]
                      [--tpchanger tpchanger] [--tapedev tapedev] [--changerfile changerfile]
                      [--changerdev changerdev] [--labelstr labelstr] [--mailto mailto]
                      [--dumpcycle dumpcycle] [--runspercycle runspercycle] [--runtapes runtapes]
                      [--tapecycle tapecycle] [--help]

DESCRIPTION

       After Amanda rpms are successfully installed, amserverconfig will setup initial Amanda
       configuration files. It will create /var/lib/amanda/guntar-lists directory if one does not
       exist.  amserverconfig does not change existing Amanda configurations.  amserverconfig
       must be run by user backup.

OPTIONS

       Options may be abbreviated, as long as the abbreviation is not ambiguous. Option argument
       can either separated by '=' or a space. Example: --templ=harddisk --tapedev /dev/nst0

       amserverconfig builds a new "config" Amanda configuration. Customize the configuration
       with the options below.

       --template template
           build Amanda configuration with pre-configured template files. Currently, harddisk,
           single-tape, tape-changer and S3 are the valid inputs for this option. Pre-configured
           template files can be found in /var/lib/amanda/template.d. This option may be combined
           with other options.

           If tape-changer is chosen for this option, program mtx is required.  amserverconfig
           will search for mtx in the following directory: "/usr/sbin", "/usr/local/sbin",
           "/usr/local/bin", "/usr/bin", "/bin" and backup's PATH.

           If harddisk is chosen and --no-vtape is not specified, amserverconfig will create and
           label virtual tape file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/$config.

       --no-vtape
           Do not create virtual tapes in the harddisk template case.

       --tapedev tapedev
           The path name of non-rewinding tape device. default
           [file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/$config]

       --tpchanger tpchanger
           The name of the tape changer. default [chg-disk]

       --changerdev changerdev
           A tape changer configuration parameter. default [/dev/null]

       --changerfile changerfile
           A tape changer configuration parameter. default [/etc/amanda/$config/changer.conf]

       --labelstr labelstr
           The tape label constraint regular expression. default [^$config-[0-9][0-9]*$]

           If this option is used with --template=harddisk, only alphanumeric string is
           supported.

       --tapetype tapetype
           The type of tape drive associated with tapedev or tpchanger. default [HARDDISK]

       --mailto mailto
           A space separated list of recipients for mail reports. default [backup]

       --dumpcycle dumpcycle
           The number of days in the backup cycle. default [1week]

       --runspercycle runspercycle
           The number of days in the backup cycle. default [5]

       --runtapes runtapes
           The maximum number of tapes used in a single run. default [1]

       --tapecycle tapecycle
           The size of tape rotation. default [25]
