Backup service

Post by GrueMaster » January 25th, 2019, 5:00 pm

I'm looking at possibly using our firewall servers (two separate sites) as backup servers for our 2 offices.

I see bacula in pakfire, but there is no documentation (that I have seen yet) on the wiki for how to configure it. As bacula is a huge system, I need to know if this sets up the server side, or is this just adding a bacula client for backing up the firewall to a bacula service?

Documentation wise, I see BackupPC documentation but it is for 2.5 core 33 (which I believe is a development branch?). I also checked the forum posts and they appear quite old regarding BackupPC (2014 was the latest I saw).

An alternate route would be to setup (another) VM on the firewall and have it control a drive designated for backups.

Any suggestions?
