Bacula configuration setting issues
i am wondering about the logic for the settings of bacula-client (using 7.0.5 pkg v 1.0.7). On a client i cant imagine there will be a local director as currently required. In most cases you will have to setup a local bacula-fd with its own name and password for this particular host and connecting to a remote Director. Also the automatic suffixes for the monitoring and director names was not very helpfull for me.
I made some changes regarding these issues. I added a field for a filedirector name in the Filedirector Screen and removed the automatic name extensions+local director type in the directors screen
My resulting bacula-fd looks now like this:
Name = NAS-dir # Director on NAS
Password = ""
Name = NAS-mon #Monitor on NAS
Password = ""
Monitor = yes
Name = Standard
director = NAS-dir = all, !skipped, !restored
Name = pfsense1-fd
FDport = 9102
WorkingDirectory = /var/db/bacula
Pid Directory = /var/run
Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 20
My version you can find on https://github.com/Tommi2Day/pfsense-packages/tree/bacula_client_fixup. If desired, i can raise a pull request for this.

Your are right, I want to understand the logic was to build the app into pfsense, don't know the idea to have a local director.
Once u setup bacula with this requirement, my bacula director is not able to grab the backup from pfsense, I got the error:
'26-Oct 10:13 bacula-dir JobId 33027: Start Backup JobId 33027, Job=MBX-PFSENSEMBX.2015-10-26_10.13.05_53
26-Oct 10:13 bacula-dir JobId 33027: Using Device "FileStorage"
26-Oct 10:13 bacula-fd JobId 33027: Fatal error: Authorization key rejected by Storage daemon.
Please see http://www.bacula.org/en/rel-manual/Bacula_Freque_Asked_Questi.html#SECTION00260000000000000000 for help.
26-Oct 10:13 bacula-dir JobId 33027: Fatal error: Bad response to Storage command: wanted 2000 OK storage
, got 2902 Bad storage'
Did u get the same error message?
Your fix is working?
