Bacula Common Connection Errors

From Tech Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Bad response from stored to open command

This error is normally caused by the name in the Bacula configuration not being a fully qualified hostname. Make sure the Name field is set to whatever the hostname is set as, for example:

Connection Error

Check that Bacula is listening on port 9102 on the client


netstat -ano | find ":9102"


lsof -i :9102

Check the backup server can telnet to port 9102 on the client.

The storage daemon (bacula-sd) listens on port 9103 on the backup server. Ensure you can telnet from the client to the backup server on this port.
