Bareos 13.2.2 is the latest stable release. Here are some highlights:
- Passive clients: to ease access to backup clients in separated network segments (like DMZs), a client can be defined 'passive', which means all needed backup connections (from director and storage daemon (SD)), will be initiated from the servers. Hence, no connection initiation from the DMZ into the internal network is needed to backup a DMZ client anymore. To be able to use that feature, you need to set
compatible = noin order to make this option available.
- Backup to disk to cloud: with the new SD to SD communication you can do copy or migration jobs to other SDs, which might be located at any other location
- The status scheduler command now shows a preview of upcoming scheduled jobs for a given time range. This lets an backup admin verify the scheduler configuration easily
- Fastzlib used as alternative to speed up compression
