What Is Bacula

You can decide what Bacula resources to share on each Baculum API host. You can set the API hosts to do configuration work, access the Bacula catalog database, run Bacula console commands, or any combination.

First, type the new job name and optional description. In the second step, decide what to backup. For this example, I chose a Bacula client and FileSet, which defines the paths to be backed up. Usually, in this window, there aren't any FileSet options to choose from yet, but you can create one with the Add new fileset button in the wizard. To define paths, I decided to browse the client filesystem and select paths in the drag and drop browser, as in the image below.

The .exe extension on a filename indicates an executable file. Executable files may, in some cases, harm your computer. Therefore, please read below to decide for yourself whether the bacula-fd.exe on your computer is a Trojan that you should remove, or whether it is a file belonging to the Windows operating system or to a trusted application.

Description: Bacula-fd.exe is not essential for the Windows OS and causes relatively few problems. The file bacula-fd.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files".Known file sizes on Windows 10/8/7/XP are 385,024 bytes (50% of all occurrences), 2,301,760 bytes, 397,560 bytes or 293,588 bytes. There is no description of the program. The bacula-fd.exe file is not a Windows core file. The process uses ports to connect to or from a LAN or the Internet. The program has no visible window.Bacula-fd.exe is able to hide itself.Therefore the technical security rating is 41% dangerous; however you should also read the user reviews.

Important: Some malware camouflages itself as bacula-fd.exe, particularly when located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder. Therefore, you should check the bacula-fd.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security. This was one of the Top Download Picks of The Washington Post and PC World.

Summary: Average user rating of bacula-fd.exe: based on 6 votes with 6 user comments.4 users think bacula-fd.exe is essential for Windows or an installed application.2 users think it's probably harmless.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with bacula-fd. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

To help you analyze the bacula-fd.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.

It can be a little tough if you are not very familiar with programming, editing a file by hand can create mistakes if the person doesn't know what they are doing. They should let the GUI have more functionality in order to have someone not as experienced be able to administer the backups.

Plugins are only bought once for the entire environment, typically when the system is installed. For example, Bacula charges one price for VMware support across the environment, not a separate charge for each hypervisor. Companies may buy additional plugins in the future, for a new platform or application, as an example, but these are only bought once and cost much less than what traditional backup products charge.

The Catalog is used to store summary information about the Jobs, Clients, and Files that were backed up and on what Volume or Volumes. The information saved in the Catalog permits the administrator or user to determine what jobs were run, their status as well as the important characteristics of each file that was backed up, and most importantly, it permits you to choose what files to restore. The Catalog is an online resource, but does not contain thedata for the files backed up. Most of the information stored in the catalog is also stored on the backup volumes (i.e. tapes). Of course, the tapes will also have a copy of the file data in addition to the File Attributes (see below).

A verify is a job that compares the current file attributes to the attributes that have previously been stored in the Bareos Catalog. This feature can be used for detecting changes to critical system files similar to what a file integrity checker like Tripwire does. One of the major advantages of using Bareos to do this is that on the machine you want protected such as a server, you can run just the File daemon, and the Director, Storage daemon, andCatalog reside on a different machine. As a consequence, if your server is ever compromised, it is unlikely that your verification database will be tampered with.

Verify can also be used to check that the most recent Job data written to a Volume agrees with what is stored in the Catalog (i.e. it compares the file attributes), *or it can check the Volume contents against the original files on disk.

A Volume is an archive unit, normally a tape or a named disk file where Bareos stores the data from one or more backup jobs. All Bareos Volumes have a software label written to the Volume by Bareos so that it identifies what Volume it is really reading. (Normally there should be no confusion with disk files, but with tapes, it is easy to mount the wrong one.)

It is possible to configure the Bareos Director to use multiple Catalogs. However, this is neither advised, nor supported. Multiple catalogs require more management because in general you must know what catalog contains what data, e.g. currently, all Pools are defined in each catalog.

The crontab entry also saves the log information into the /var/log/bacula/ folder, which needs to be created and permissions changed in order for backup process to be able to save the log file. The following commands need to be run as root on the client to create the appropriate /var/log/bacula folder.

I was researching ransomware which led me to run a port scan which reported just two things: an ipp and bacula-fd. I've read that bacula-fd is a network backup client daemon and is not part of OS X. I don't do network backups and I didn't install bacula-fd. What's confusing is that I can't find any file named bacula or bacula-fd and I don't see a process running. What's going on Should I be concerned

I've administered Legato and I've done some work with both Amanda and bacula. They are all essentially the same solution with differing implementation details. Do you need something more radically different Maybe try a solution like Crashplan This will require you to fill out your question even further to explore your comfort levels with proprietary formats and cloud services and their related security implications. In order to get something very different from traditional centralized network backup software, you are going to need to figure this out anyway.

One of the most weird and wonderful products of evolution is the penis bone, or baculum. The baculum is an extra-skeletal bone, which means it is not attached to the rest of the skeleton but instead floats daintily at the end of the penis. Depending on the animal, bacula range in size from under a millimetre to nearly a metre long, and in shape, varying from needle-like spines to fork like prongs.

We found that, over the entire course of primate evolution, having a baculum was linked to longer intromission durations (anything over three minutes). On top of this, males of primate species with longer intromission durations tend to have far longer bacula than males of species where intromission is short.

The basic system comprises three components: the director, the file daemon and the storage daemon. To take them in reverse order, the storage daemon takes data from the file daemon and stores it wherever directed. The file daemon gets the data (files) to be backed up and passes it to the storage daemon. The director then does the rest of the work; that is, defines the task to be performed and the schedule for them to be performed. The basic unit for a backup is the job. This describes what is to be backed-up, when it is to occur and where the data is to be stored.

To configure each component there is a .conf file in /etc/bacula. Each file defines the interconnectivity with the others, so you need make sure all the passwords agree one with another (you'll see what I mean when you look at the details). bacula-sd.conf defines the storage devices that you want to use, and bacula-fd.conf merely defines itself. The main work is done in bacula-dir.conf, which sets up the everything else. The configuration files are used to define those components that are to be run automatically: ad-hoc jobs can be run through the console. 153554b96e
