I have this defined in all job defs. Otherwise, a job might want to use a Volume already
mounted and in use by an existing job. This directive tells it to use another Volume,
which would be mounted on another drive.
JobDefs {
...
PreferMountedVolumes = no
...
}
Here's a full example:
JobDefs {
Name = "DefaultJob"
Type = Backup
Level = Incremental
Schedule = "WeeklyCycle"
# note this is where I specify that SD
Storage = CreyFile
Messages = Standard
Write Bootstrap = "/usr/local/bacula/bsr/%c_%n.bsr"
Pool = FullFile # required parameter for all Jobs
# don't get hung up on these bits...
Full Backup Pool = FullFile
Differential Backup Pool = DiffFile
Incremental Backup Pool = IncrFile
Priority = 10
# don't spool date when backing up to disk
Spool Data = no
Spool Attributes = yes
# this is the important part
PreferMountedVolumes = no
}
These are exerpts from my configuration files. They are not complete.
This should get you started.
