Bacula: Failed to connect to Storage daemon

Posted on : 31-08-2006 | By : Brandon W. King | In : Computers/IT, Error Fixes, Linux, Systems Administration

I loaded up bconsole this morning to check the status of the full backups that were suppose to run last night and found out that all of the backups had failed. The error message: “Failed to connect to Storage daemon”

I discovered that bacula-sd (storage daemon) was only listening to Then I changed it to the full qualified domain for the server, and the client file daemon still failed to connect to the storage daemon (form WinXP boxes). Then I changed it to the ip address of the server and everything started to work properly.

Config files I changed:


  • Storage directive
    • Address #changed to bacula-sd server ip address


  • Storage directive
    • SDAddress #changed to bacula-sd server ip address

I’m glad you posted this. I came across this issue today and other posts were not helping. I believe that this is a potential issue for any network which is setup with multiple ip addresses and/or internal/external hostnames.

Ohh thank you guy you saved my nerves and a lot of time!!
