[Bacula-devel] Message type of "Current Volume "XXX1" not acceptable because"
when a backup job has filled a tape, it requests a different tape; the default
message subsystem config results in emails that include a text like "Please
mount Volume XXX3 or label a new one for...". The internal message type
is "M_MOUNT". When a user now inserts a wrong tape, a bacula-internal message
is generated (type "M_WARNING") in the sense of "Current Volume "XXX1" not
acceptable because [...]", but this message is not dispatched to the user.
I would like this message to be sent to the operator. The most easy
possibility probably would be using message type M_MOUNT in the source code
here, as well.
Is it sensible to dispatch "warning" messages to the operator? Is anyone of
you doing that (i.e. adding "warning" to the "operator = " config statement)?
There is a message type "M_VOLMGMT" that seems to be completely unused in the
bacula source code. What is its purpose? Maybe I could use this one?
What do you think about the idea of creating bitmasks for messages? Doing so,
messages could have multiple types at once. The "Current Volume not
acceptable" message could be a "subsystem mount, severity warning" message
then. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, this would raise compatibility
issues, as old and new versions would have different understandings of flags.
