Bacula and Backups

Trying to continue with Amanda and 20GB native tapes to back up 60+GB of data is an exercise in futility. I installed Bacula on Dopey months ago. To configure it I used

$ ./configure --sbindir=/usr/local/bacula/bin --sysconfdir=/etc/bacula
--with-pid-dir=/var/run/ --with-subsys-dir=/var/run/

To start it all up:

bash-3.00# cd /etc/bacula
bash-3.00# ./startmysql
bash-3.00# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /usr/local/mysql/data

bash-3.00# ./bacula start
Starting the Bacula Storage daemon
Starting the Bacula File daemon
Starting the Bacula Director daemon

For OpenBSD, Bacula only supports the file daemon, so we use
./configure --sbindir-pid-dir=/var/run/ --with-subsys-dir=/var/run/

To run jobs, use bconsole and 'run <jobname>'.
