since bareos update to version 16.2.5 (app center version) we regularly see a monthly (triggered on 1st of every month) re-generation of a client passwords in /etc/bareos/autogenerated/clients/$CLIENT-HOST.include
which clearly leads in failed backup runs due to authentication errors. The client in this case in an Win 2012 R2 instance which acts as an (UCS) domain member (type: Windows Workstation/Server).
Any ideas why and which (script) re-generates the password in /etc/bareos/autogenerated/clients/$CLIENT-HOST.include of this bareos host?
btw: We reorganized to new bareos config style I described in this post.
The files /etc/bareos/autogenerated/clients/$CLIENT-HOST.include are generated by /usr/lib/univention-directory-listener/system/univention-bareos.py. It is called by UCS as soon as an LDAP object is changed.
I verified, that a call of
univention-directory-listener-ctrl resync bareos
indeed recreates the passwords in the *.include files.
However, I have no idea, why something like this should be called periodically on your system.
Have you got a cron job running for resynchronisation? Or do you change your LDAP objects periodically?
I manually did not create any cron job on this host nor changed any LDAP objects (manually). The affected Win 2012 R2 instance which acts as an (UCS) domain member was never re-joined or anything else.
But today I noticed some error-log- entries regarding to not fully removed ‘maildisclaimer’ App like:

I’m not sure, but deinstallation time of this app could be synchronized with first emerging of this issue.
No idea, if this is the reason, but for now I deleted affected maildisclaimer python scripts manually and will watch and wait.
