Bacula Common Connection Errors
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: 188.8.131.52.example.com
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.
