Hi Jeffrey!
I have a PC with Suse linux 9.0 whith a SCSI DDS-2 tape drive (4 Gb)
that will be my backup server.
I have another machine (that is my nis, nfs, dhcp, etc... server)
that will be my Amanda client and want to do a full backup once a
month and a incremental backup every week of the /home directory (20
Gb, so I will use 5 tapes on every dump) of this server. I have a fell
1- How can I choice on that week day tha backup will happen?
2- How I can say when the full backup will happen and when the
incremental backup will happen?
