bacula

Author: Carl Caum carl@puppetlabs.com Copyright (c) 2011, Puppet Labs Inc.

ABOUT

This module manages Bacula. Through declaration of the bacula class, you can configure Directors, Storage Daemons, Clients, and consoles.

INSTALLATION

The module can be obtained from the Puppet Forge. Select Download which downloads a tar.gz file. Upload the tar.gz file to your Puppet Master. Untar the file. This will create a new directory called puppetlabs-bacula-${version_number}. Rename this directory to just bacula and place it in your modulepath.

You can also use the puppet-module tool. Just run this command from your modulepath. puppet-module install puppetlabs/bacula

REQUIREMENTS

  • Puppet >=2.6 if using parameterized classes
  • Puppetlabs/stdlib module. Can be obtained here http://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/stdlib or with the command puppet-module install puppetlabs/stdlib
  • Puppetlabs/mysql module. Can be obtained here http://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/mysql or with the command puppet-module install puppetlabs/mysql Declare the mysql::server class to set up a mysql server on the bacula director node and set manage_db to true to have bacula manage the mysql database.
  • Puppetlabs/sqlite module. Can be obtained here http://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/sqlite or with the command puppet-module install puppetlabs/sqlite Declare the mysql::sqlite class so it's available for the bacula class to use.

CONFIGURATION

There is one class (bacula) that needs to be declared on all nodes managing any component of bacula. These nodes are configured using one of two methods.

  1. Using Top Scope (e.g. Dashboard) parameters
  2. Declare the bacula class on node definitions in your manifest.

NOTE: The two methods can be mixed and matched, but take care not to create the same Top Scope parameter and class parameter simultaneously (See below for class parameters and their matching Top Scope parameter) as you may get unexpected results. Order of parameter precendence:

  • Class Parameter
  • Top Scope Parameter
  • Hard Coded value

Using Top Scope (Dashboard)

Steps:

  1. Add the bacula class to the nodes or groups you want to manage any bacula component on.
  2. Add the parameters (See below) to the nodes or groups to configure the bacula class

Grouping and Classifying Nodes

Using Parameterized Classes

Declaration example:

  class { 'bacula':
    is_storage        => true,
    is_director       => true,
    is_client         => true,
    manage_console    => true,
    director_password => 'XXXXXXXXX',
    console_password  => 'XXXXXXXXX',
    director_server   => 'bacula.domain.com',
    mail_to           => 'bacula-admin@domain.com',
    storage_server    => 'bacula.domain.com',
  }

CLIENTS

To back up clients on your network, you need to tell the director about them. The director is whichever node you included the bacula class and you specifed the parameter is_director to true. The way to add clients is different depending on if you're using an ENC such as Dashboard or if you're using parameterized classes. Both need to know the parameters of the client

Client Parameters

PARAMETERS   DESCRIPTION

fileset      Which FileSet to assign to the client
schedule     Which schedule to assign to the client

Using Parameterized Classes

The bacula class takes a clients parameter. The value for clients must be a hash with the keys of the hash being the FQDN of the client. The value of the client needs to be a hash containing the parameters for the client.

  $clients = {
    'node1.domain.com' = {
      'fileset'  => 'Basic:noHome',
      'schedule' => 'Weekly'
    }
  }

  class { 'bacula':
    is_storage        => true,
    is_director       => true,
    is_client         => true,
    manage_console    => true,
    director_password => 'XXXXXXXXX',
    console_password  => 'XXXXXXXXX',
    director_server   => 'bacula.domain.com',
    mail_to           => 'bacula-admin@domain.com',
    storage_server    => 'bacula.domain.com',
    clients           => $clients,
  }

Using Top Scope (Dashboard)

The bacula module will look for parameters of a certain format to build its clients list. For each client, make a parmaeter of this format: bacula_client_client1.domain.com with value: fileset=MyFileSet,schedule=MySchedule

TEMPLATES

The Bacula module comes with templates that set default Fileset resources. To configure different Filesets, copy the bacula-dir.conf.erb file out of the bacula/templates directory to another location in your manifests (can be another module). Make the modifications you want and set the director_template parameter (listed above) to point to the path where you have stored the custom template.

Using Puppet Templates

TODO

  • Add ability to set custom Filesets for clients.
