Not able to take backup of windows file thru amanda

Hi Guys,
I need to take a backup of windows client from FC4 (linux)thru amanda SW.I have shown below the following configurations done in server & client.
Server :
1) OS-FC4 linux
2)Loaded rpms on server side amanda-2.4.5-2,server ,devel & client.
Windows Client:
1) OS-XP SP2
2)Loaded packages amandaclient 2.5.1p1,SSH(Cgywin)Gnu tar,Gnu zip.

Problem Facing:
When doing "amcheck -c test" on server ,i am receving the error message "one client hosts checked not found".Between the server and client i had selected is BSDTCP when installing amandclient software in windows.

If anybody configured the linux to windows client successfully with respect to configuration,pls tell me know the procedure of configuring windows client with respect to FC4 linux server.

I had tried by searching the website of zmanda and zmanda forums.Still now i am trying and facing the above problem.

But I had succesfully configured the RHEL4 Client,Solaris Clients and suse client also..but windows client giving the above issue.

Shalom,

In order for windows files to be backed up via the network they must be in windows shares. I happen to have an XP box at home and I back up important files on it merely by configuring a windows share.

Re: Not able to take backup of windows file thru amanda

Hi,
The above amanda backuping problem is solved by installing and configuring amanda-2.5.1p1 in windows XP SP2..
now it is taking windows backup thru amandaclient using BSDTCP.
