Full Linux system backup with #Bareos on #Fedora Linux

By | June 28, 2015

As the home environment becomes more complicated the need for an integrated whole solution for the entire environment was necessary.
I already have an automatic backup setup using Barracuda Yosemite Server Backup, but this is only for one server (nas1) where OwnCloud is residing. The daily backup job in fact does a backup only for the OwnCloud files. All the other resources from nas1 and all the other servers and computers are left in the dark.
While searching for an GPL solution similar to the expensive Yosemite Server Backup Unlimited I stumbled over Bareos.
Because nas1 is already setup as a Directory for Barracuda Yosemite Server Backup , nas2 will be setup as the Bareos Directory. nas1 will just be a client of the main directory from nas2.

STEP 1: Install the bareos main and contrib repo files. There is no FC22 release yet so I used the compatible release for FC 21 or FC20

Find your favorite distribution binaries at:
Bareos latest release
Bareos contrib latest release

STEP 2: After copying the proper repo files to /etc/yum.repos.d install the packages:

[root@nas2 ~]# dnf install bareos* bareos-contrib* bareos-webui* bareos-bat bareos-storage-tape

The above will install:
– bareos = main binaries for bareos
– bareos-contrib = contrib bareos binaries
– bareos-webui = the web based bareos Admin Tool (more like a monitoring tool)
– bareos-bat = the QT bareos Admin Tool
– bareos-storage-tape = support for tape drives

STEP 3: Finish installation of bareos by setting up the database resources. Follow installation chapter from the official manual. The following is the except from the manual for my case :

MySQL

Make sure, that root has direct access to the local MySQL server. Check if the command mysql connects to the database without defining the password. This is the default on RedHat and SUSE distributions. On other systems (Debian, Ubuntu), create the file ~/.my.cnf with your authentication informations:

[client]
host=localhost
user=root
password=YourPasswordForAccessingMysqlAsRoot

Configuration 2.6: MySQL credentials file .my.cnf

It is recommended, to secure the Bareos database connection with a password. See Catalog Maintenance – MySQL about how to archieve this. For testing, using a password-less MySQL connection is probable okay. Setup the Bareos database tables by following commands:

/usr/lib/bareos/scripts/create_bareos_database
/usr/lib/bareos/scripts/make_bareos_tables
/usr/lib/bareos/scripts/grant_bareos_privileges

Commands 2.7: Setup Bareos catalog with MySQL

As some Bareos updates require a database schema update, therefore the file /root/.my.cnf might also be useful in the future.

STEP 4: Modify the configuration file for Bareos Directory service /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.conf

}
@/etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/bareos-webui.conf

Note that besides some default definitions I:
– added a JobDefs nas2-OS-BackupJob
– added a JobDefs nas1-OS-BackupJob
– added a backup job nas2-Backup
– added a backup job nas1-Backup
– added a restore job nas2-Restore
– added a restore job nas1-Restore
– changed the FileSet Linux All with more excludes (/media/storage)
– added a scheduler nas2-WeeklyCycle
– added a scheduler nas1-WeeklyCycle
– declared nas2-fd and nas1-fd clients
– added a Tape storage
– added three pools: nas2-Full, nas2-Differential and nas2-Incremental
– added three pools: nas1-Full, nas1-Differential and nas1-Incremental

STEP 5: Modify the configuration file for bareos Storage Service /etc/bareos/bareos-sd.conf

#
# Default Bareos Storage Daemon Configuration file
#
# For Bareos release 14.2.2 (12 December 2014) — redhat Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)
#
# You may need to change the name of your tape drive
# on the “Archive Device” directive in the Device
# resource. If you change the Name and/or the
# “Media Type” in the Device resource, please ensure
# that dird.conf has corresponding changes.
#

Storage { # definition of myself
Name = nas2-sd
Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 20

# remove comment from “Plugin Directory” to load plugins from specified directory.
# if “Plugin Names” is defined, only the specified plugins will be loaded,
# otherwise all storage plugins (*-sd.so) from the “Plugin Directory”.
#
# Plugin Directory = /usr/lib64/bareos/plugins
# Plugin Names = “”
}

#
# List Directors who are permitted to contact Storage daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas2-dir
Password = “eiUV8j4IEvb8sLhGbaDdDjycq25RGcjyGteDrLYMxdpw”
}

#
# Restricted Director, used by tray-monitor to get the
# status of the storage daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas2-mon
Password = “tzgOA0N3ANcj/BQP4uJMuXbrEcNFQjj5y8/l4E9x”
Monitor = yes
}

#
# Devices supported by this Storage daemon
# To connect, the Director’s bareos-dir.conf must have the same Name and MediaType.
#
Device {
Name = FileStorage
Media Type = File
Archive Device = /var/lib/bareos/storage
LabelMedia = yes; # lets Bareos label unlabeled media
Random Access = yes;
AutomaticMount = yes; # when device opened, read it
RemovableMedia = no;
AlwaysOpen = no;
}

#
# include additional configuration files, if required
#

# eg.
#@/etc/bareos/bareos-sd.d/device-gluster.conf

#
# Send all messages to the Director,
# mount messages also are sent to the email address
#
Messages {
Name = Standard
director = nas2-dir = all
}
@/etc/bareos/bareos-sd.d/device-tape-with-autoloader.conf

STEP 6: Modify the additional tape configuration file for bareos Storage service /etc/bareos/bareos-sd.d/device-tape-with-autoloader.conf

#
# Preparations:
#
# include this configuration file in bareos-sd.conf by
# @/etc/bareos/bareos-sd.d/device-tape-with-autoloader.conf
#

# on Linux use “lsscsi –generic”
# to get a list of your SCSI devices.
# However, normaly you should access your devices by-id
# (eg. /dev/tape/by-id/scsi-350011d00018a5f03-nst),
# because the short device names like /dev/nst1
# might change on reboot.

Device {
Name = “HP ULTRIUM 3000”
DeviceType = tape

# default:0, only required if the autoloader have multiple drives.
DriveIndex = 0

# if only one drive is available, this is normally /dev/nst0.
# However, it is advised to access it via id (/dev/tape/by-id/…).
#ArchiveDevice = /dev/nst0
ArchiveDevice = /dev/tape/by-id/scsi-3500110a00162e13e-nst

# arbitrary string that descripes the the storage media.
# Bareos uses this to determine, which device can be handle what media.
MediaType = lto

# enable “Check Label” if tapes with ANSI/IBM labels
# should be preserved
#Check Label = yes
LabelMedia = yes
AutoChanger = no # default: no
AutomaticMount = yes # default: no
MaximumFileSize = 10GB # default: 1000000000 (1GB)
}

STEP 7: Modify the configuration file for bareos File service on nas2. This is in fact the client service on nas2.

#
# Default Bareos File Daemon Configuration file
#
# For Bareos release 14.2.2 (12 December 2014) — redhat Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)
#
# There is not much to change here except perhaps the
# File daemon Name to
#

#
# List Directors who are permitted to contact this File daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas2-dir
Password = “1P7zIPEtWV2r19IdMLau8WcsBhkwmKh2IwsUQBhs7ezM”
}

#
# Restricted Director, used by tray-monitor to get the
# status of the file daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas2-mon
Password = “PLOum1Cd8Tir6n7GrauX0KXMm2uRtojUWHy/D+ABVwlo”
Monitor = yes
}

#
# “Global” File daemon configuration specifications
#
FileDaemon { # this is me
Name = nas2-fd
Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 20

# remove comment from “Plugin Directory” to load plugins from specified directory.
# if “Plugin Names” is defined, only the specified plugins will be loaded,
# otherwise all storage plugins (*-fd.so) from the “Plugin Directory”.
#
# Plugin Directory = /usr/lib64/bareos/plugins
# Plugin Names = “”

# if compatible is set to yes, we are compatible with bacula
# if you want to use new bareos features, please set
# compatible = no
}

# Send all messages except skipped files back to Director
Messages {
Name = Standard
director = nas2-dir = all, !skipped, !restored
}

STEP 8: Modify the configuration file for bareos File service on nas1. This is in fact the client service on nas1. The only change is to add to the file an entry for nas2 directory.

#
# Default Bareos File Daemon Configuration file
#
# For Bareos release 14.2.2 (12 December 2014) — redhat Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)
#
# There is not much to change here except perhaps the
# File daemon Name to
#

#
# List Directors who are permitted to contact this File daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas1-dir
Password = “bkzZHOuDX2Pp6KXGtFs5obqC+D6O/1oGmiPQgjOtabzq”
}

Director {
Name = nas2-dir
Password = “1P7zIPEtWV2r19IdMLau8WcsBhkwmKh2IwsUQBhs7ezM”
}

#
# Restricted Director, used by tray-monitor to get the
# status of the file daemon
#
Director {
Name = nas1-mon
Password = “+Y2ViHABGOFibQ35Dam4Q3/AzS6JcVd8vPdRcoQW/SJa”
Monitor = yes
}

#
# “Global” File daemon configuration specifications
#
FileDaemon { # this is me
Name = nas1-fd
Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 20

# remove comment from “Plugin Directory” to load plugins from specified directory.
# if “Plugin Names” is defined, only the specified plugins will be loaded,
# otherwise all storage plugins (*-fd.so) from the “Plugin Directory”.
#
# Plugin Directory = /usr/lib64/bareos/plugins
# Plugin Names = “”

# if compatible is set to yes, we are compatible with bacula
# if you want to use new bareos features, please set
# compatible = no
}

# Send all messages except skipped files back to Director
Messages {
Name = Standard
director = nas1-dir = all, !skipped, !restored
}

STEP 9: Setup bareos webui by following the installation manual


STEP 10:
Configure bareos bat QT based admin tool by modifying /etc/bareos/bat.conf

#
# Bareos Administration Tool (bat) configuration file
#

Director {
Name = nas2-dir
DIRport = 9101
address = nas2
Password = “Ah1dy61SszPWg78IKwwBg7kloxxJus2vMTQzDXNb4cRr”
}

STEP 11: Configure bareos bconsole console based admin tool by modifying /etc/bareos/bconsole.conf

#
# Bareos User Agent (or Console) Configuration File
#

Director {
Name = nas2-dir
DIRport = 9101
address = nas2
Password = “Ah1dy61SszPWg78IKwwBg7kloxxJus2vMTQzDXNb4cRr”
}

STEP 12: On the nas2 (bacula directory server and also a client) open in the firewall the TCP ports 9101,9102,9103

STEP 13: On the nas1 (bacula client) open in the firewall the TCP port 9102

STEP 14: On nas2 start all the bareos services

service bareos-dir start
service bareos-sd start
service bareos-fd start

STEP 15: On nas1 start the bareos client file service

service bareos-fd start

STEP 16: On nas2 as root user start bat or bconsole to check the settings and administer the environment
