  I upgraded the server to 2.4.1. I will run another full cycle starting today. I have also written a cronjob that will run every hour and stat few files, some on local disk and some on NFS filesystems. I am having problem on bacula server so I will be running the script on bacula server machine which only runs bacula, and postgresql.


Will see if I get problem with 2.4.1.
