Description Jason Tibbitts 2014-01-22 17:17:05 UTC
I installed a fresh F20 machine and added it to my amanda rotation.  My amanda server is way too old, so I still have to use the UDP services.  (Given this problem I suspect that I am the only Fedora user of UDP-based amanda.)  Unfortunately the systemd configuration files for amanda are incorrect, which prevents the socket from being enabled.

The amanda-udp.socket file has:


But the package itself has no file of that name, only amanda-udp@.service.  Trying to start the socket gets you:

Jan 22 10:55:50 systemd[1]: Socket service amanda-udp.service not loaded, refusing.
Jan 22 10:55:50 systemd[1]: Failed to listen on Amanda Activation Socket.

which isn't the clearest message, but it is trying to say that there simply is no configured service named "amanda-udp.service".

Since you only ever want one instance of the UDP server, the .socket file is correct and simply renaming amanda-udp@.service to amanda-udp.service (and doing systemctl daemon-reload) works fine.

You're not the only one using it -- I ran into the same problem.

Your fix helped me as well.  Thanks!

My Amanda server isn't *that* old -- 3.3.0.  Looks like I set it up in September of 2011.
