Installation on Virtual Box

Installation Video Tutorial Option

Import the OVA file into your Virtual Box environment customizing the settings to match your specific requirements such as the VM Name and the network to connect to, and so on.

It is important to ensure that the network the VM is attached to has a functioning DHCP server and DNS server.

Note: After importing the OVA file into Virtual Box, the network the VM is attached to must be a “bridged” one. This is necessary because in this guide there are scenarios where an external client needs to connect back to the storage service on this VM.

Next, start the Bacula Enterprise VM.

Once the VM is running, you will see a Linux console login screen displaying the URL that you can use to access the trial version through your web browser for testing purposes.

The URL will direct you to a landing page with the following five options to choose from:

  • Bacula Enterprise Trial Online Guide: By selecting this option, you will open the online trial guide (the current page) in a new browser tab.
  • Manage Bacula Enterprise Trial with ‘BCenter’: This option will launch BCenter in a new browser tab.
  • Contact Bacula Systems Support: This option will open a new email in your default email client with certain fields pre-filled. Sending this email will create a new ticket with the Bacula Systems’ Support team.
  • Reset the Bacula Enterprise Trial environment back to defaults.
  • Enter Admin Email Address (for job logs): This option allow the user to change the email address.

From the landing page, click on “Manage Bacula Enterprise Trial with ‘BCenter’” to open BCenter and move on to Scenario 1. The default username and password for BCenter are both ‘admin’, and you will likely have to approve your trial appliance self-signed certificate in your browser.
