Amanbda's disk-changer script uses bash-syntax like the following:

However, FreeBSD's /bin/sh doesn't support this.

So, either you need to patch the script to use bash (and depend on shells/bash2), or patch the script to use correct FreeBSD syntax.


run amanda with chg-disk as changer configured


No patch included as I just run the script under bash for now.
