Bareos: Install client and backup recommendations


we have a Bareos server (non-UCS) in our network. I was able to install the bareos client to a bunch of systems, however I fail to install the client via the UCS app center or the command line of the AD server (version 4.4.7). I do not want to install the bareos server (storage, director) to the UCS itself.

Aditional to that: do you have any recommendation (directories) to backup? The functions this UCS are: AD (user, groups), LDAP, Certificates, DNS.


** Installation of the client **

  • UCS Master/Member *

Inclusion of the repository.


into the currently installed master version -> maintained/component -> latest version.

From this, the values for the repo settings can be determined.

Software -> Repository settings -> New:

Name of the component: bareos_20200122130204 (version number changes).
Description: Bareos Backup Client
Repository server:
Version: current

-> Apply changes

apt update
univention-install bareos-client bareos-filedaemon bareos-traymonitor

Hi @pixel,

I found this approach already. However, I got and still get with your settings dependency errors. I discarded this way, since I thought this might be not the right way:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 bareos-client : Depends: bareos-bconsole (>= 19.2.7-2) but it is not going to be installed
 bareos-filedaemon : Depends: bareos-common (= 19.2.7-2) but it is not going to be installed
 bareos-traymonitor : Depends: bareos-common (= 19.2.7-2) but it is not going to be installed
                      Depends: libqt5core5a (>= 5.9.0~beta) but 5.7.1+dfsg-3+deb9u3 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

If I add bareos-bconsole and bareos-common to the installation command (and remove the traymonitor), I end up with this:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 bareos-common : Depends: libc6 (>= 2.27)

But the installed version is lower:

dennis@ucs01:~$ dpkg -l | grep libc6
ii  libc6:amd64                                         2.24-11+deb9u4                                                      amd64        GNU C Library: Shared libraries

Are there any users out there who uses an external Bareos/Bacula server and were able to install bareos-client and bareos-filedaemon on UCS?
