Recall that it's not the device numbers of the /dev/sd* that will
change -- it's the devices from which you're mounting your
filesystems, which IIRC are LVM volumes. So you should be checking
the major/minor numbers of those device files.
If the --no-check-device option is not working correctly, then it
would best be demonstrated with a small example using *only* tar, and
leaving Amanda out of the situation.
I think you determined that the holding-disk problems were a disk failure.
