I'm puzzled by the <domainname> -- did the error message do that, or did you obfuscate it when you posted it? If that is the error message, then that would be your error -- you failed to fill out that information when you configured it.
Assuming you did fill the server name/fqdn correctly in ZWCConfig, make sure the Amanda "Server IP/FQDN" is entered correctly in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zmanda\ZWC\1.0\Install \Servers.
Restart ZWCservice after fixing the server address.
Does your user match up as amandabackup on both machines?
You may need to recompile with the configuration option --with-user=amandabackup, if that is what was wrong. Simply adjusting the config files may not do the job; although, you could check the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\zmanda\zwc\1.0\Install \backupUser
Again, without getting more detail from you, I'm having trouble coming up with more than that.
Many thanks for ur reply choogendyk.Now sorry i didnt described too much as this error is killing me..
*<domainname>---i edited the domainname..Thats my domain..assume it as <mydomain>.i m sure thats not the problem.just wanted to hide it.
*I followed the Amanda_Community_Setup_15_minutes_ver13 configuration for this project.
*HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zmanda\ZWC\1.0\Install \Servers is showing the right server name which is samurai.<mydomain>.com
* same user for server and client i.e. amandabackup along with the same password.
* No iptables ON nor selinux.
* The most confusing thing is that i have configured 2 servers redhat-server.<mydomain>.com and this samurai.<mydomain>.com.Now i have added both servers for the same w2k3 client called windsor.<mydomain>.com.....loll the same configuration on redhat-server for the same win client is working but for samurai its throwing this error-----
-sh-3.1$ amcheck -c lucknowwinbackup
Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
ERROR: windsor.<mydomain>.com: Server validation Failed. Please register server with client.

(brought to you by Amanda 2.6.0p1)
