Here is something I don't recall running into before.
I run amanda as my backup and have been for about 13 years now.
But with this new re-install, I can't do anything as the user amanda, via the su or su - command syntax, gets a "bad passwd" return. I have never before even set a passwd for amanda, and I have now tried both a * and an x in that position of the passwd file without effecting this error.
Note, this is the same passwd, group and shadow files from the previously working install.
What should I do next?
Thanks & Cheers, Gene
