Installing Amanda Client on VMWare Linux


We have three VMWare Linux servers that need Amanda Client installed on them. First, which version of Amanda Client will I need for these servers? Secondly, we currently have an Amanda Server, how would I incoporate the VMWare Linux (clients) into Amanda Server?

VMWare Client servers:
uname -a
Linux -- 2.4.21-47.0.1.ELvmnix #1 Thu Nov 29 17:50:29 PST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

You should be able to install the Amanda client on your VMWare linux servers just like you would on any server. Presumably, they have to have a network identity to provide services, and you add the DLE's to the Amanda backup server the same way you would any server using their network identity.

The version, of course, should be compatible with your Amanda server and the distribution appropriate for the linux on your VMWare servers.
