    Bacula file backups


    Hello all

    Currently I have bacula setup to do tape backups and a file backups successfully. This may sound like a silly question but is it possible to do 2 file backups but for different locations or 1 and get bacula to dump the file backups into my 2 diff locations.....hope this makes sense....

    Any pointers, response of any kind will be v helpful!

    Many thanks

    t.

    I assume, you mean "Pool", "Storage Ressource", or "Storage Daemon" if you talk about "locations"

    Within one bacula job, you cannot backup to two storagedaemons.

    A simple, but not very elegant approach would be to run 2 jobs,
    one scheduled after the other, that only differ in the storage and schedule ressource.

    Drawbacks:
    - double the load for the client
    - not _exactly_ the same data for this client on these two Storages.

    If you have version 3 of bacula director/storage-daemon (and preferable file-daemon, too)
    the new Copy Job feature might be interesting to you.

    Thank you v much for your response!

    I'll take a look at the copy job feature that v3 of bacula can offer...
