       bacula-dir - Bacula Director


       bacula-dir [options]


       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.

       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 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.)


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