Frankly, Bacula is quite complicated to set up on the server side of things, and that’s why we’ve created this guide. For this tutorial, we’ll start with a local backup of a single system, and then we’ll add other clients and back them up too. There are GUI tools to help you work with a Bacula system, and we’ll cover them, but they tend to be oriented towards monitoring and maintaining a working system. For that reason, this tutorial focuses on setting up the system manually by editing the config files and using the command console, giving you a clear image of how everything works. Most of the configuration happens in three configuration files – and thankfully, these are well commented. With our help, you’ll soon be designing a Bacula scheme that is tailored to your own unique requirements.
