    Default OSS 11.2 amanda

    Moin,
    I am running amanda for several years, so I think the configuration is ok. ;-)
    After an SuSE online update of amanda to version
    2.6.1.1-3.5.1 x86_64 I have the following problem.
    Running amcheck at the server just for one client and one disk:
    Code:
    amanda@muemmel:/var/log> amcheck -c mue_hd muemmel1 sdb2
    
    Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    --------------------------------
    ERROR: muemmel1: [can not execute /usr/lib/amanda/runtar: Permission denied]
    Client check: 1 host checked in 0.239 seconds.  1 problem found.
    
    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.1p1)
    The amandad debug file at the client, the interesting part only
    Code:
    <<<<<
    OPTIONS features=ffffffff9ffeffffffff7f;
    OK sdb2
    OK sdb2
    OK /
    ERROR [can not execute /usr/lib/amanda/runtar: Permission denied]
    OK /bin/tar executable
    OK /var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists/. read/writable
    OK /usr/bin/gzip executable
    OK /dev/null read/writable
    OK /tmp/amanda has more than 64KB available.
    OK /tmp/amanda has more than 64KB available.
    OK /etc has more than 64KB available.
    And now: important: the amanda version on a PC with an INTEL Processor works fine, this error happens only an a PC with an AMD Processor. Both PCs are identically in the amanda configuration and before online-update all went well.
    Any hints? Wilfried

    What is the output of:
    Code:
    ll /usr/lib/amanda/runtar
    See if this file is executable or not.

    Moin,
    Code:
    amanda@muemmel:/var/log> ll /usr/lib/amanda/runtar
    -rwsr-x--- 1 root amanda 10776 21. Jan 00:47 /usr/lib/amanda/runtar
    ... and it is equal on both machines.
    btw I tried this with dumpuser:amanda and dumpuser:root
    The error is just the same.

    Possibly an apparmor profile issue? Have you updated the profiles (not the same as updating the packages).

    Moin,
    AppArmor is not and was never running.

    In the first post, the log shows that the logged in user is "amanda". Does that user belong to "amanda" group also?

    At the server /etc/passwd says
    amanda:x:37:112:Amanda admin:/var/lib/amanda:/bin/bash where 112 is group amanda.
    At the faulty client
    amanda:x:37:115:Amanda admin:/var/lib/amanda:/bin/bash where 115 is group amanda there.

    I just downgraded to the previous version of the amanda package:
    amanda-2.6.1.1.-3.4.x86_64.rpm
    The failure is still existing.
    So I believe, this is not an amanda problem but rather there is a faulty system library amanda uses. But how to figure out that?

    That would be a bit difficult task. Someone familiar with amanda may comment on this.
