Sure, here it is. Everything derived from pp 423 of the manual.

on the storage daemon:

Device {
 Name = disk                        #
 Media Type = file
 Device Type = file
 Archive Device = C:/bacula/backup_data
 AutomaticMount = yes               # when device opened, read it
 AlwaysOpen = yes
 RemovableMedia = no
 RandomAccess = yes
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 Spool Directory = C:/bacula/temp
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
}

on the director daemon:

JobDefs {
  Name = "DefaultJob"
  Type = Backup
  Level = Incremental
  Client = michaelpc
  FileSet = "docs"
  Schedule = "default"
  Storage = disk
  Messages = Standard
  Pool = Default
  Priority = 10
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  SpoolData = yes
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
}

Cheers,

Michael

Michael,

I'd like that. The only stipulation is that I try it myself first. I have found the documentation a little confusing and may give up quicker than I like to admit.

I do however need the reference for the information on spooling. Do you have that to start me off?

Sure,

A pity bacula does not support resuming creation of spool files... I do have this slow connection problem as well, solved partially by spooling. Once it is finished the file does go straight to tape though. Do you need help with the spooling ?

Michael,

I need the D2D2T feature or at the very least disk spooling because I am stuck using an HP Ext. USB(v2) DAT72 drive and the links between servers are slow. I suppose I could setup Rsync between the servers then fire off the backup

I've successfully used the backup to file feature but the remote disk to tape fails consistently.

Hi David,

Maybe it can, maybe it can't but I'm sure it can be emulated. bacula's volumes on disk (media type = file) for instance are similar to tape streams, so technically speaking you can use bacula's own "duplicate backup" mechanism for making a backup to disk and to tape immediately after which looks more or less like d2d2t to me. Mind, this is not using disk spooling which is a different feature altogether.

What feature of d2d2t is so important ?

Hey Gang,

Can Bacula handle D2D2T backups?
