       amdump - back up all disks in an Amanda configuration

       amdump config [ host [ disk ]* ]*

       Amdump  switches  to the appropriate Amanda configuration directory, e.g. /etc/amanda/con-
       fig, then attempts to back up every disk specified by the  amanda.conf  file.   Amdump  is
       normally run by cron.

       You  can  specify  many	host/disk expression, only disks that match an expression will be
       dumped. All disk are dumped if no expression are given.

       If file /etc/amanda/config/hold exists, amdump will wait until it is removed before start-
       ing  the backups.  This allows scheduled backups to be delayed when circumstances warrant,
       for example, if the tape device is being used for  some	other  purpose.   While  waiting,
       amdump checks for the hold file every minute.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.

       Here is a typical crontab entry.  It runs amdump every weeknight at 1 a.m. as user bin:

	      0 1 * * 1-5 bin /usr/sbin/amdump DailySet1

       Please  see  the  crontab(5)  or crontab(1) manual page for the correct crontab format for
       your system.

       amdump: waiting for hold file to be removed
	      The "hold" file exists and amdump is waiting for it to be removed  before  starting

       amdump: amdump or amflush is already running, or you must run amcleanup
	      Amdump  detected	another  amdump  or amflush running, or the remains of a previous
	      incomplete amdump or amflush run.  This run  is  terminated.   If  the  problem  is
	      caused  by  the  remains	of a previous run, you must execute amcleanup(8) and then
	      rerun amdump.
