I setup the /etc/amanda/daily/amanda.conf|disklist files according to
previous configuration examples from this list.  When I issued an
'amcheck daily -c' as the backup user on Debian on the file server, it
reported multiple errors, one each for every volume I'm attempting to
backup.  Are these harmless errors? or will the backup not succeed?
