Installing BareOS Client ONLY

Does any one know how to JUST install the BareOS Clients on Univention Corporate Server?

I have followed the following instructions and all have FAILED.

We are only wishing to install the Client, and NOT the full BareOS installation, as these functions are already handled by a BareOS Appliance.

We have an External BareOS Appliance built for running/collecting/managing backups and backup storages, this is NOT a Univention Corporate Server, but a BareOS Appliance. We are looking to install the BareOS Client/Agent on our UCS servers so that we can back them up along with our RHEL/CENTOS/WINDOWS servers.


as BareOS is part of Debian, you should simply be able to install it via apt-get install bareos-filedaemon

You may have to active the unsupported repositories first.

Kind regards,

It seems I am no longer able to activate the unmaintained packages, when I go set the UCR setting for unmaintained repos, it never saves it. I click the save button and nothing happens. Afterwards when I try to view any settings in Univention Configuration Registry (UCR) all I get is the spinning circle.

Ok it installed just find on the Master. However now I am getting this on the backup/member servers and they are both set to allow unmaintained repos.

root@bebucsbdcsvrp2:~# apt-get install bareos-filedaemon

N: Ignoring file '15_ucs-online-version.list.old' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
E: Unable to locate package bareos-filedaemon

also running “apt update” does not resolve this issue.

Also running:

root@bebucsbdcsvrp2:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# univention-add-app univention-bareos --latest

21.05.18 10:20:56.403 MODULE      ( PROCESS ) : 0 file(s) are new
App "univention-bareos" not found

results in it not being found regardless if I use “bareos” or “univnetion-bareos”

Got it had to follow this to get the repo activated…

How do I open the firewall ports for ports 9102?


The admin docs contain a short section about the firewall. Unfortunately it isn’t all that enlightening. The section in the developer documentation is a bit better. It should give you enough information to create a firewall rule.

If you cannot get it to work, post what you tried and we’ll advise.

Kind regards,
