Bug Fix Advisory amanda bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1539-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-20
Last updated on: 2012-02-20
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated amanda packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup
system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup
server to back up multiple hosts to one or more tape drives or disk files.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, AMANDA was unable to extract files from archives, if the
file names contained Bash metacharacters. With this update, this unintended
behavior has been corrected. (BZ#456141)

* Prior to this update, the output of the help for the "amfetchdump" command
described the option "-k", which does not exist. With this update, the spurious
description has been removed from the output. (BZ#508111)

All users of AMANDA should upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these
bugs.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
