There is not any VSS help for home windows ninety five, ninety eight, ME, NT, or 2000: this can be a home windows dilemma, no longer a Bacula dilemma. Standalone restoration Bacula makes it really effortless to create a bootable Linux CD containing every thing essential to increase a procedure from naked steel and start recovery of records. just a little tougher (but nonetheless efficacious) methods exist for Solaris, FreeBSD, and home windows structures. this can be mentioned in a section extra element within the part “Advanced gains” later during this bankruptcy. Documentation Documentation is the Achilles’ heel of many open-source initiatives. fortunately, this isn't the case with Bacula. even though the association of the guide on the time of writing is a piece missing, Bacula is carefully and safely documented.

Bacula is both satisfied backing up three hundred consumers to an incredible tape silo, or one computer to a weekly burned DVD. Bacula positive factors | a hundred sixty five Tape force trying out essentially the most frequently asked questions of Bacula (and most likely the other backup process) is “Will it paintings with my tape force? ” whereas the web guide does have loads of drives identified to paintings good, a much more authoritative solution will be acquired utilizing the btape application. This software reads the configuration you've outlined in your tape drives and makes use of it to run a complete sequence of compatibility checks, together with analyzing, writing, and numerous search operations. If btape completes all trying out effectively, you'll be convinced that your tape force is either suitable with Bacula and properly configured. An instance Configuration how you can illustrate how Bacula is used is to teach you a longer instance. the instance community proven in determine 6-3 comprises 3 machines: an Intel Linux procedure working the Bacula server elements, a home windows XP buyer, and a Mac OS X patron. For simplicity’s sake, they're hooked up to a similar community section, yet so long as IP connectivity is on the market among the server and the consumers, this isn't a demand.
