I have installed amanda- as well as samba-1.9.16p11 on the
same station (running Solaris 2.5), and patched samba-1.9.16p11/source
with the patch file came along with amanda- under patches
subdirectory (samba-1.9.16p2.patch).

However, I still get the *no estimate or historical data* error mesg
when running amdump to back up the PC's file system (running NT4.0)
Both amanda & samba work fine by themselves.

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated!
