NAME
       amservice - run an amanda service on a client

SYNOPSIS
       amservice [-f input_file	[-s]] [-o configoption...] hostname auth
		 service

DESCRIPTION
       Amservice execute an Amanda service on a	client.	It can be used without
       amanda server configuration (amanda.conf	and disklist). It can be used
       to check	communication between a	server and a client. Amservice reads
       stdin to	capture	the REQ	packet to send to the client.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.

OPTIONS
       hostname
	   The hostname	of the client.

       auth
	   The auth to use, one	of: bsd, bsdudp, bsdtcp, ssh, rsh or krb5. The
	   client must be configured with this auth.

       service
	   The amanda service to execute on the	client.	One of noop, selfcheck
	   or sendsize.

       -f input_file
	   Use the file	input_file instead of stdin to read the	REQ packet
	   from.

       -s
	   Redirect the	first connected	stream to stdin/stdout.	The -f
	   argument is required	for the	REQ packet, the	REP packet is not
	   printed on stdout.

       -o configoption
	   See the "CONFIGURATION OVERRIDE" section in amanda(8).

EXAMPLE
       The noop	service	is easy	to execute because it does not require a REQ
       packet:
       amservice hostname bsdtcp noop <	/dev/null

       The example executes the	noop service on	the client using bsdtcp	auth.
       This is useful for debugging connection problems. It print an OPTIONS
       line upon success.

       It is more difficult to execute the selfcheck or	sendsize service, as
       these require a valid REQ packet. If you	have already uccessfully run
       amanda, you can find valid REQ packets in the amandad.*.debug files.

EXIT CODE
       The exit	code of	amservice is one of:
	0  = success
	1  = error executing amandad on	the client.

       As amservice doesn't parse the REP packet, it can only detect failures
       in executing amandad on the client.  amservice can exit with value 0
       even if the user	is not authorized to execute the service. An error
       message will be printed.
