Let's JAM!


I recently installed Bacula on our servers. It seems like a very good piece of software and seems to be working well so far. On Debian, it seems like there was one issue with passwords. Also, I was using the FQDN, but in my hosts file, I had the wrong IP, so it seemed as though my daemons weren't listening on the right ports (really it was the IP, though).

So if you ever end up having a problem where things work when you specify the IP and things work and the you use the domain name in the config and things stop working, double check your hosts file and your how your DNS resolves.

Also, if anybody is wondering what guide I followed, it was here.
