bacula-dir - Bacula Director

This manual page documents briefly the bacula-dir command. Bacula's Director Daemon acts as the controller of the network backup system: it is responsible for scheduling and coordinating backups across the network.

Show version and usage of program. TCP-WRAPPERS CONFIGURATION Tcpwrappers looks for the service name of the bacula daemons in hosts.allow , and the ser‐ vice names of these daemons is configured to be different from the binary. The service names are configured to be %hostname%-%component% rather than bacula-dir (As defined in the 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: bacula-dir: ALL you will not be able to run bconsole to connect to the local director! The entry would have to read: server-dir: ALL and this will allow the console to connect to the director. (The process running is bac‐ ula-dir.)
