bscan - Bacula's 'Scan tape' SYNOPSIS
bscan [options] bacula-archive DESCRIPTION
The purpose of bscan is to read (scan) a Bacula Volume and to recreate or update the database contents with the information found on the Volume. This is done in a non-destructive way. This permits restoring database entries that have been lost by pruning, purging, deleting, or a database corruption problem. Normally, it should not be necessary to run the bscan command because the database is self maintaining, and most corrupted databases can be repaired by the tools provided by the database vendors. In addition, if you have maintained bootstrap files during backups, you should be able to recover all your data from the bootstrap file without needed an up to date catalog. bscan command. OPTIONS

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- 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
