This manual page documents briefly thebacula-dir
Bacula's Director Daemon acts as the controller of thenetwork backup system: it is responsible for scheduling and coordinating backups across the network.
- Change location to read bacula-dir.conf from (default $CWD)
- Set the username/uid to run as.
- Set the group/gid to run as.
Tcpwrappers looks for the service name of the bacula daemons inhosts.allow
, and the service names of these daemons is configured to be different from thebinary.The service names are configured to be%hostname%-%component%
(As defined in the bacula-dir.conf.in file)
So the hosts.allow entry has to match%hostname%-%component%(servername-dir for example) instead of bacula-%component%
WARNING:This means that if the hosts.allow file has the entry:
you will not be able to run bconsole to connect to the local director!
The entry would have to read:
and this will allow the console to connect to the director.(The process running is bacula-dir.)
