"In this first of two parts, we'll give an overview of how to
get started with Bacula, look at different pieces that make up
Bacula and look at setup and configuration basics. This isn't meant
to be a comprehensive guide, but should give an overview for those
who haven't waded through the copious and excellent online
documentation for Bacula.
"Basic Bacula Components and Services
"The three major services Bacula uses are the storage director
(bacula-sd), the file director (bacula-fd) and the director itself
(bacula-dir). The storage director facilitates the storage and
recovery of data and attributes to physical media. The file
director is the client piece which is installed on the machine to
be backed up, and the bacula director is the manager and
coordinator of all backup job activities. You'll use the Bacula
director (bacula-dir) to configure storage pools, jobs and to
automate and schedule backups and the Bacula console (bconsole) to
interface with and control it all."
