Installation logs are created in /var/log/amanda directory. All Amanda package installation errors are logged in this log file.
Amanda packages create "amandabackup" user as the Amanda user. All the installed binaries have "amandabackup" as the owner and "disk" as the group name except for some internal Amanda client binaries that are "setuid root". The "amandabackup" user account is locked till the system administrator sets the password for the user. The Amanda user "amandabackup" home directory will be /var/lib/amanda.
/var/amanda/amandates is automatically created as part of the post-installation script.
Default .amandahosts file is created in Amanda local/shared state directory (see Installation directories above) and it is owned by Amanda user "amandabackup". The contents of the file are:
localhost.localnet amandabackup localhost.localnet root
gnutar-lists directory is created in Amanda local/shared state directory (see Installation directories above) and is owned by Amanda user "amandabackup"
