$100 for a bareos-fd package

  • Hi,

    for the last two hours I tried to get the bacula-fd package of pfSense working together with my bareos-dir, but unfortunately without success.
    So why not throw some bucks into the development of a bareos-fd package? Since a couple of days version 15.2.x ist released, so I'd love to see this version.

    Thanks a lot and many greets from germany

  • What have you done to make it working?


    pkg update
    pkg install bareos-server

    Go to

    cd /usr/local/etc/bareos/

    delete all file except of bareos-fd

    rm bareos-barcodes bareos-dir.conf bareos-sd.conf bconsole.conf mtx-changer.conf

    Create bareos-fd.conf file end edit it:

    FileDaemon {                  
      Name = PFSENSE-FD #you have to put same name in bareos-dir on the backup server!
      Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 20
    Director {
      Name = backup-dir   ##YOUR DIRECTOR NAME
    Messages {
      Name = Standard
      director = backup-dir = all, !skipped, !restored

    Now go to /etc/usr/local/rc.d and remove all bareos startup files except bareos-fd

    After that edit /etc/rc.conf and add:


    That's it.

    As of pfSense 2.4.
    Go to http://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64/latest/All/

    and for bareos-server

    pkg add http://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64/latest/All/postgresql95-client-9.5.10.txz
    pkg add http://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64/latest/All/bareos-server-16.2.7.txz

    and then follow old instructions
