After Amanda rpms are successfully installed and amserverconfig is run, amaddclient will add client to the Amanda configuration. amaddclient create or update Amanda disklist(5) file and create or update /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts file on the server.
If --no-client-update is not specified, amaddclient will attempt to update or create /var/lib/amanda/.amandahost, amanda-client.conf and gnutar-lists on the client. (See ssh-keygen(1) and ssh-add(1) for detail.)
amaddclient must be run by user amandabackup.
--config, --client and --diskdev must be specified.
Options may be abbreviated, as long as the abbreviation is not ambiguous. Option argument can either separated by = or a space. Example: --conf=v253, --client client8.zmanda.com
