[OpenAFS] amanda-afs, authentication, and permissions
Tue, 2 Nov 2010 17:07:20 -0400
We would like to back up our OpenAFS cell using the latest version of
AMANDA. I got amanda-afs from the amanda wiki and a patch for compiling
I'm not sure how to handle authentication and permissions. Since we're
using Kerberos 5 for OpenAFS authentication, I figured that I should use
the "krb5" authentication type in amanda. I can't get that working.
Before I ask an amanda user group I wanted to double-check and ask you
1. Do I really need the "krb5" authentication for AFS backups with
2. How would the amanda backup user (amandabackup) have permissions to
read all of the files to back them up?
Server and clients: CentOS 5
OpenAFS 1.4.10 and Kerberos 5 authentication
