fresh install of amanda on CentOS 5.2 server. 2 clients are CentOS 5.2 also, but only trying to backup a folder ('/myfiles') on one to establish that it works before deployment. Amcheck is successful.  (See actual output of amcheck at end).
I keep seeing  "dumper1: FAILED 01-00002 "service /usr/libexec/amanda/sendbackup failed: pid 24892 exited with code 1" in the various logs. I'll attach some of them.
I'm new to amanda, so you'll probably need me to send more info. This issue is high importance with lots of point. Thanks.

It may be read permission issue. Does the amanda backup user have read access on /myfiles directory?

Sorry I didn't get back quicker.
Yes, the user does have read permissions to myfiles. My error is different now (I ripped out Amanda and reinstalled). Now I'm getting a "localhost resolve failure" and "driver did not get port from taper".

I ended up figuring this one out on my own, though your response prompted me to check all the permissions. I've awarded the points to you, because you DID try to help me. Thanks.
