Hello Seth and Simon,

I figured I'd answer both of you at the same time.

First off, I do get some strange errors of this type:

fh_verify: mail/:saved permission failure, acc=1, error=13
svc: unknown program 100227 (me 100003)

However, when I searched on Google this was an NFS message that was harmless
and could be ignored (is this right?).

Can't comment on this.

I looked this morning and I see this message (dmesg):

st0: Block limits 1 - 16777215 bytes

This equates to 15GB... rotten tape or drive going mad. It should read 20GB if I am correct.
If I use 1GB = 1000MB it comes at 16GB which is still 4GB short.

The crash always happens when the Amanda system is writting to tape.   Could
this be a hardware problem clue?

possibly yes.

I haven't tried the 1.01 RPMS yet.  I'm on a SuSE7.1 system here so I compile
my own kernels.

Patches are available for building your own kernel
the patches can be found at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/1.0_rpm.html

I'm not using any kind of RAID on this system.   It's got four SCSI disks
connected to the onboard(Adaptec) SCSI controler and a tape (HP-DAT40)
connected to an Adaptec-30160 controller.

That tape drive should work, you have 20GB uncompressed and 40GB compressed.
We got tape full errors at about 30GB of data.

Good luck
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
