BACULA-DIR(8)	     Network backup, recovery&verification	 BACULA-DIR(8)

NAME
       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  bac-
       ula-dir.conf.in file)

       So  the	hosts.allow entry has to match %hostname%-%component% (server-
       name-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.)
