NAME

       bacula-dir - Bacula Director

SYNOPSIS

       bacula-dir [options]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -c file
              Specify the configuration file to use.

       -d nn  Set debug level to nn.

       -dt    Print timestamp in debug output.

       -f     Run in foreground (for debugging).

       -g group
              Set the group/gid to run as.

       -r job Run <job>.

       -s     No signals (for debugging).

       -t     Test the configuration file and report errors.

       -u user
              Set the username/uid to run as.

       -v     Set verbose mode.

       -?     Show version and usage of program.

TCP-WRAPPERS CONFIGURATION

       Tcpwrappers  looks  for  the  service  name  of  the  bacula daemons in
       hosts.allow , and the service 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
       bacula-dir.conf.in 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 bacula-dir.)

SEE ALSO

       bacula-fd(8), bacula-sd(8).
