BAREOS-DIR(8)	    Backup Archiving REcovery Open Sourced	 BAREOS-DIR(8)

NAME
       bareos-dir - Bareos Director

SYNOPSIS
       bareos-dir [options]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the bareos-dir command.
       Bareos'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 path
	      Specify the configuration	file or	directory 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.

       -m     Print kaboom output (for debugging)

       -r job Run <job>.

       -s     No signals (for debugging).

       -t     Test the configuration 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  bareos daemons in
       hosts.allow The service names are not the names of  the	binaries,  but
       the configured names of the components, often %hostname%-%component%.

       So  the	hosts.allow entry has to match %hostname%-%component% (server-
       name-dir	for example) instead of	bareos-%component%

       WARNING:

       This means that if the hosts.allow file has the entry:

       bareos-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 bareos-dir.)
