Installation of a File Daemon (a backup agent) on CentOS or Red Hat

  1. Log in into your system where you want to install a backup agent, called a File Daemon within Bacula Enterprise Edition.
  2. Run the following command as root or via sudo (please adapt the URL to your RHEL/CentOS platform, where all CentOS must be replaced by RHEL):
    • URL=https://www.baculasystems.com/dl/KickStart/rhel6-64/
    • rpm -ivh $URL/bacula-enterprise-setup.rpm
  3. To install the client, type the following command:
    • yum install bacula-enterprise-demo-client
  4. Please setup your local firewall and SELinux to accept a Bacula Enterprise Edition connection, or disable it completely:
    • /etc/init.d/iptables stop
    • chkconfig iptables off
    • edit /etc/selinux/config and change SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=permissive
  5. If successfully installed, continue by adding a client as explained in the next chapter named "Creation of a new Client Resource in BWeb Management Suite".
