yet another UCS system:
Tried to install BareOS on this system - which failed due to "half installed" packages: bareos, bareos-client, bareos-filedaemon.
Could not uninstall via the web-interface, so I had to remove it via CLI and apt-get.
Apparently it was removed thoroughly, as I also had to confirm deletion if the PostgreSQL DB.
Nevertheless: Trying to install it resulted in another "half" installation.
"Side-Effect": The BareOS repository disappears as well - meaning I can't even install / reinstall or uninstall anymore, until I copy the repo-data from another system (Where the install ran smoothly actually)
A few hours later:
I'm getting there ... slowly.
99% up and running now.
Software installed because bareos-fd couldn't start.
Cause: Somewhere down in history, bareos seems to have been installed before ... wanting to mount an NFS drive!
Gave bareos-fd the mount point. One step futher: Director couldn't start : no database anymore.
Manually created a new db, re-installed all packages: OK.
Last topic not working:
Although the bareos checkbox for the "device" is there an can be selected: No autoconfigured client etc.
What script triggers this?
It's a new day, a new dawn...
After digging through the BareOS documentation, I found out that the creation of autogenerated files is something which is included in newer BareOS versions.
Although I still don't know, what exactly initiates this command - it works now.
