DESCRIPTION
       After Amanda rpms are successfully installed, amserverconfig will setup
       initial Amanda configuration files. It will create
       /var/lib/amanda/guntar-lists directory if one does not exist.
       amserverconfig does not change existing Amanda configurations.
       amserverconfig must be run by user amandabackup.

OPTIONS
       Options may be abbreviated, as long as the abbreviation is not
       ambiguous. Option argument can either separated by '=' or a space.
       Example:	--templ=harddisk --tapedev /dev/nst0

       amserverconfig builds a new "config" Amanda configuration. Customize
       the configuration with the options below.

       --template template
	   build Amanda	configuration with pre-configured template files.
	   Currently, harddisk,	single-tape, tape-changer and S3 are the valid
	   inputs for this option. Pre-configured template files can be	found
	   in /var/lib/amanda/template.d. This option may be combined with
	   other options.

	   If tape-changer is chosen for this option, program mtx is required.
	   amserverconfig will search for mtx in the following directory:
	   "/usr/sbin",	"/usr/local/sbin", "/usr/local/bin", "/usr/bin",
	   "/bin" and amandabackup's PATH.

	   If harddisk is chosen and --no-vtape	is not specified,
	   amserverconfig will create and label	virtual	tape
	   file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/$config.

       --no-vtape
	   Do not create virtual tapes in the harddisk template	case.

       --tapedev tapedev
	   The path name of non-rewinding tape device. default
	   [file://var/lib/amanda/vtapes/$config]

       --tpchanger tpchanger
	   The name of the tape	changer. default [chg-disk]

       --changerdev changerdev
	   A tape changer configuration	parameter. default [/dev/null]

       --changerfile changerfile
	   A tape changer configuration	parameter. default
	   [/etc/amanda/$config/changer.conf]

       --labelstr labelstr
	   The tape label constraint regular expression. default
	   [^$config-[0-9][0-9]*$]

	   If this option is used with --template=harddisk, only alphanumeric
	   string is supported.

       --tapetype tapetype
	   The type of tape drive associated with tapedev or tpchanger.
	   default [HARDDISK]

       --mailto	mailto
	   A space separated list of recipients	for mail reports. default
	   [amandabackup]

       --dumpcycle dumpcycle
	   The number of days in the backup cycle. default [1week]

       --runspercycle runspercycle
	   The number of days in the backup cycle. default [5]

       --runtapes runtapes
	   The maximum number of tapes used in a single	run. default [1]

       --tapecycle tapecycle
	   The size of tape rotation. default [25]
