Re: [Bacula-devel] Ubuntu question


I have found some problems
- prerm scripts don't stop daemon (fd/sd)
- in some scripts, you will find 2>&1 > /dev/null instead of > /dev/null 2>&1
 (and it can fail some commands)

For the password, it's a good idea to generate them in the bacula-common 
package (with something like 
$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c33)

and to use 

   --with-fd-password="XXX_REPLACE_WITH_CLIENT_PASSWORD_XXX" \
   --with-db-name="XXX_REPLACE_WITH_DBNAME_XXX" \
   --with-db-user="XXX_REPLACE_WITH_DBUSER_XXX" \
   --with-db-password="XXX_REPLACE_WITH_DBPASS_XXX" \

in configure options
