======== Quick installation guide with the MySQL backend ========

Perform the following commands to install Bacula with its default configuration
and all daemons and consoles in one server.

1) Install packages

# yum -y install mysql-server \
    bacula-director bacula-storage bacula-client \
    bacula-console bacula-console-bat

2) Select the MySQL database backend

# alternatives --set /usr/lib64/

3) Create database

# systemctl enable mysqld.service
# systemctl start mysqld.service

# cd /usr/libexec/bacula
# ./create_bacula_database mysql
# ./make_bacula_tables mysql
# ./grant_bacula_privileges mysql

4) Change passwords in /etc/bacula/*.conf with something you like.

# sed -i -e 's/@@DIR_PASSWORD@@/dir-password/g' \
        -e 's/@@FD_PASSWORD@@/fd-password/g' \
        -e 's/@@SD_PASSWORD@@/sd-password/g' \
        -e 's/@@MON_DIR_PASSWORD@@/mon-dir-password/g' \
        -e 's/@@MON_FD_PASSWORD@@/mon-fd-password/g' \
        -e 's/@@MON_SD_PASSWORD@@/mon-sd-password/g' \

5) Enable daemons and check they are working

# systemctl enable bacula-dir.service
# systemctl enable bacula-sd.service
# systemctl enable bacula-fd.service

# systemctl start bacula-dir.service
# echo status bacula-dir | bconsole

# systemctl start bacula-sd.service
# echo status bacula-sd | bconsole

# systemctl start bacula-fd.service
# echo status bacula-fd | bconsole

6) To grant console access to regular users add the read permission to the
console configuration files. Remember that there is no authentication check; so
a user that can launch the console can perform any command.

# chmod +r /etc/bacula/bconsole.conf /etc/bacula/bat.conf
