Installation of a File Daemon (a backup agent) on Debian or Ubuntu

  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:
    • apt-get update
    • apt-get install apt-transport-https
  3. Install the package signature with the following commands:
    • cd /tmp
    • wget https://www.baculasystems.com/dl/KickStart/BaculaSystems-Public-Signature.asc
    • apt-key add BaculaSystems-Public-Signature.asc
    • rm BaculaSystems-Public-Signature.asc
  4. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite editor and add the following lines adapted to your platform (needs to be changed twice in the line - wheezy-64 if you run Debian Wheezy 64 bit, trusty-64 if you run Ubuntu Trusty 64 bit, etc...):
  5. For Debian platforms

    #Trial Bacula Enterprise
    deb https://www.baculasystems.com/dl/KickStart/wheezy-64/ wheezy demo

    For Ubuntu platforms

    #Trial Bacula Enterprise
    deb [arch=amd64] https://www.baculasystems.com/dl/KickStart/trusty-64/ trusty demo

    [arch=amd64] is mandatory only for 64 bit Ubuntu platforms.

  6. To install the client, type the following command:
    • apt-get update
    • apt-get install bacula-enterprise-demo-client
  7. Please setup your local firewall to accept a Bacula Enterprise Edition connection, or disable it completely:
    • /etc/init.d/iptables stop
    • chkconfig iptables off
  8. 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".
