Troubleshooting and Resolution

You can get to the bacula management console with:

sudo /usr/sbin/bconsole

From there you can get a overview status with:

status dir

Intervention Required

If the tapes fill up, it may be required to purge the oldest volume. This is done with the purge command. Select volume, then a list of volumes comes up. Pick the oldest volume that has not already been purged or recycled.

list volumes

then

purge

After that the oldest tape will be purged, but bacula may not resume on it yet. You need to load the tape to make sure it realizes it can go on:

load
