      I ran into the same issue with the make install portion as above.

      The message reporting that the group:backup did not exist seemed to be the first of the cascade of errors.

      I created the group “backup” and then edited the newly created group to include root as a member and the make install step completed with error.

      After that the amadmin –version gave me my currrent build version.

    Does it support file versioning?

    • Avishek Kumar says:

      Sorry but i could not find it in official documents anywhere.
      I need to test it myself which requires plenty of time.

      :) If you come to know, please let us know.
