With regards to the posted configuration files. I too am new to backing up using Bacula or anything else other than tar and rsync. So please excuse my ignorance.
My issues are numerous, but to start, the following from a previous post is a start to what I need.
## Definition of file storage device
Name = File
# Do not use "localhost" here
Address = 10.1.3.3 # N.B. Use a fully qualified name here
SDPort = 9103
Password = "blah"
Device = FileStorage
Media Type = File
I installed Bacula onto a centOS server with the postgresql db. utilizing yum. The server is an HP dl360 with filesystem I created to store the backups called simply "/backups" I allowed 1.1tb of space because I will not have huge files to backup. The filesystem is raid 5 with a spare drive for redundancy. Plz see below:
[root@mt-bacula01 init.d]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
59G 4.6G 51G 9% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 99M 20M 75M 21% /boot
tmpfs 3.0G 0 3.0G 0% /dev/shm
1.1T 199M 1.1T 1% /backups
I want to backup to the /backups filesystem, but am totally confused by the conf's files to do this. I understand the kernel of an OS, but have trouble digesting this...
Can someone help me out with this part and hopefully I can figure out the rest.
