Hello,

Anybody has experience with bacula & kerio mailsever (linux)?
Is it an "ok"-backup method instead of the kerio backup tool?

Best regards,
Frederic

It's easier to manage if you have a lot of kerio & other server . 1 central director that backups every (+200) server(s).

But that's probably a personal reason.
I wonder if bacula generates a valid backup when the server is live.

That's sound interesting.

Where's the backup file located.

On each server or have to locate on centralized server?

We are using Bacula to back up Kerio Connect, but instead of letting the Bacula file daemon on the KC server deliver the eml files (and everything else) to one of the storage daemons live, we store the regular Kerio backup on a separate SAN volume (the well known bunch of zip files). The volume is accessible from both Kerio Connect (RHEL) and Bacula (Ubuntu LTS). From the SAN volume we dump it to tape.

We didn't want a traditional bacula-fd backup of KC since we technically had no control over its open files. Sure, it may have worked, but "may work" was not a design goal Wink

Writing around 200 GB to an LTO tape drive takes about 30 minutes, but the preceding full KC backup takes 12 hours almost no matter what you do.
