i looked at the console commands and did not find
a way to get client ip address. a nice new command
we have configured about 25 staff workstations.
i cannot control when users power-off their machine
(overnight, weekend, vacation, ...)
every night bacula sends some backup error emails
containing "Unable to connect to Client".
i don't like to read this error emails everyday,
so it is likely to oversight real backup errors.
what i like todo:
write a script which disables/enables backup job
depending on host alive check (ping exit status)
the script loops over group of clients defined
in bweb. client names are select via sql from
database tables Client,client_group,client_group_member.
but i cannot get client address from database
and i cannot use bconsole
and i don't like to parse config files (bacula
has already done this job)
the script would be started from cron a few minutes
before the normal backup schedule for the group.
it generates a report which lists all unreachable
