I tested disaster recovery with the new 7.2.0 version yesterday. It worked with some fiddling around. Just to document it here, there are some more or less minor glitches with the packaging:

* /var/log/bacula is not created by the packages, this causes the start of the director to fail.
* /etc/bacula/scripts is not readable for user postgres. Thus database scripts cannot be executed properly. I think it would it be OK to have /etc/bacula and children world readable as long as the config files are only readable by root (clear text passwords).
* Generated config files are in the package, i.e. static. They should be generated at package installation to have unique passwords and proper hostname.

If anybody wants to fix the PKGBUILD, go ahead. I probably won't find the time to do it myself.

I created an updated PKGBUILD for bacula 7.2.0 with additional minor fixes.

Diff against the old PKGBUILD to see the changes.

Installation successful, systemctl status bacula-fd successful loaded and running, but server (bacula-dir, 2nd maschine) can't connect to client (arch).
Nmap shows tcp port 9102 st up, but servers bconsole (status client arch) says no. By the way all other systems (non-arch) work fine, so i think my configuration is ok. I don't know why there is no respone from bacula-fd.

Anyone can successfully install bacula-fd?

It depends on tcp_wrappers, but its upstream URL can not be reached.

When trying to install the build package I get the following error:

error: missing package metadata in bacula-7.0.5.tar.gz
error: 'bacula-7.0.5.tar.gz': invalid or corrupted package

Oh and configure flags haven't changed, tcp_wrappers were always enabled.

Thanks for the patch, georgnix. Tweaked it slightly, let me know if there are problems.

Download the AUR tarball, extract, download the patch, then
$ patch -p0 < 2015-03-04-PKGBUILD.patch
$ makepkg
Install the relevant packages with pacman.

@georgnix, I see you wrote a patch that might address my problem.

After installing bacula on server, when I try to run bacula-dir, I get
bacula-dir: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If you patch solves it, then how do I apply it? I have no idea how to do it.

@AlD Did you change the configure flags since 7.0.4?
Suddenly bacula daemons respect /etc/hosts.allow which I had to find out the hard way
bacula-dir -d 10000 ... also gives every config lexer token ... *YUCK*

Does anybody use tcp wrappers? I don't and would be happy if this would be removed from the build. There are firewalls these days...
