Amazingly the backup succeeded last night.  But the amverify for the
coda volumes failed.  The error message included:

Using device /dev/nst0
Volume Daily204, Date 20040225
Skipped <coda file server name>.coda.root.20040225.0 (** Cannot do
/usr/sbin/volutil dumps)
Skipped <coda file server name>.internal.private.20040225.0 (** Cannot
do /usr/sbin/volutil dumps)
End-of-Tape detected.

When I ran '/usr/sbin/volutil dumps' as the 'backup' user, I got the
usage information for volutil.  In it I saw the command 'dump' but not
'dumps'.  I did a cursory grep through the amanda sources, but couldn't
come up with a location in the code that volutil is called with dumps.

Is this an error that can safely be ignored? or is there even a way to
verify the dumps that are made to tape?
