    Can you please check ownership of the directory /backup/intra/slots? It should be owned
    by amandabackup:disk and must be readable/write-able by amandabackup user.

    It appears intra1-15 was labelled by different backup set.

    Which version of Amanda are you using? Please post in forums.zmanda.com for prompt reply.

    Ownership and Permissions for Slots directory:
    [[email protected] intra]# ll
    total 4
    drwxrwx--- 17 amanda disk 4096 Mar 5 12:08 slots


    Version of Amanda:
    amanda-backup_server-2.6.1p1-1.rhel5.i386.rpm


    Also somebody before me was using DailySet1 as their main directory. Probably that might be causing the conflict.....

    Below is the partial copy of my amanda.conf file:
    runtapes 1 # number of tapes to be used in a single run of amdump
    #tpchanger "chg-manual" # the tape-changer glue script
    tpchanger "chg-disk"

    #tapedev "null:"
    tapedev "file:/backup/intra/slots" # the no-rewind tape device to be used

    #tapetype "null:"
    #labelstr "^DailySet1-[0-9][0-9]*$"

    #changerfile "/etc/amanda/intra/changer"
    #changerfile "/etc/amanda/intra/changer-status"
    changerfile "/etc/amanda/intra/changer.conf-access"
    changerdev "/dev/null"

    # If you want Amanda to automatically label any non-Amanda tapes it
    # encounters, uncomment the line below. Note that this will ERASE any
    # non-Amanda tapes you may have, and may also ERASE any near-failing tapes.
    # Use with caution.
    ## label_new_tapes "DailySet1-%%%"

    maxdumpsize -1 # Maximum number of bytes the planner will schedule
    # for a run (default: runtapes * tape_length).
    tapetype HARDDISK # what kind of tape it is (see tapetypes below)
    define tapetype HARDDISK {
    comment "Backup to Virtual Tape"
    length 3072 mbytes #each tape is 3 gigs
    }
