Bacula Client Compatibility Issue


I came across a problem recently when trying to back up a Bacula client running bacula-fd version 7.0.5 from a Bacula server running bacual-director / bacula-sd version 5.2.6.

Here are the error messages:

Authorization key rejected by Storage daemon
Bad response to Storage command: wanted 2000 OK storage, got 2902 Bad storage


It seemed the older storage daemon was not compatible with newer client.


I installed Bareos client.

Bareos is a fork of Bacula project. Their FAQs informs us that the bareos-fd is compatible with all version of the bacula director when you enable the compatible mode in the config of the file daemon. On Debian and Ubuntu,, installation is straightforward since Bareos packages are available from the software repositories.

apt-get install bareos-client

The installer automatically removes the Bacula client during installation. Now edit the client configuration file (bareos-fd.conf) and make sure Bacula compatibility is on.

compatible = yes
