One thought on “Install bacula-fd on Mac OSX

  • I’m posting this wherever i found outdated info about OSX and bacula – I’ve just finished setting up bacula on ubuntu 17 for server and a verity of machines including Apple Sierra. Download the latest 9.0.3 source from bacula.org and move into the platforms/osx directory and read the readme – it compiled first time and i even managed to change the compile to include a console for OSX/Sierra. I did need to manually change the plist to get it to run at start up and control it due to the org.bacula.bacula-fd.plist.in actually being called com.baculasystems.bacula-fd.plist.in (just link the file names to get it to work).

    I DO have mac ports installed and had previously installed the v7.x from there… and then de-installed it as i wanted the facilities in v9.x
