Using AMANDA to restore backups of Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4


Hi,

I've run into a problem when trying to restore a file using AMANDA.
My setup is as follows:

I have a server that runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 and I have a client that runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4. I successfully backed up files on the client using AMANDA.

Now I am trying to restore a file from the backup and restore it to the client running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4. In order to do this, I have to go through the server which runs Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4.

Here is the problem I encounter. When I try the restore, it freezes at the extraction process. I've left it running for the night and still it is stuck at the same place. The restore never completes.

So I'm wondering if anyone knows what seems to be the issue? Could it be that the AMANDA driver I installed does not allow restore with different versions of Red Hat? Or is there an update in Red Hat 4 that would fix this issue?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
