I'm in the process of installing amanda 3.2 (misc/amanda-server) using 
ports with an Overland AIT-3 library as the storage medium.

So far I haven't had a problem with going through the "Build a Basic 
Configuration" instructions on  I did have to create a 
different "amanda" login entry which allowed for "su - amanda" in order to 
follow the instructions (using "su - amanda").

The server is running 8.3-PRERELEASE/amd64 at this point; the clients will 
be a CENTOS 6.2 server, a FreeBSD 8.3-STABLE client, and three XP SP3 PCs. 
I will eventually try to add a Mac client.

If there's anyone who's done this before, especially 3.x, and who has 
words of wisdom I'd very much appreciate the information.
