|Summary||0000004: Winbareos installer does not write config|
|Description||Winbareos installer does not seem to write config files - at least not in the expected directory. Expected them to be in the same directory as they used to be with B*cula.|
They are not linked in the task-menu, neither.
Really not there or moved elsewhere and not documented?
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Configs now at c:\ProgramData\Bareos.
If there are existing configs while installer runs, new configs are stored as *.new (e.g. bareos-fd.conf.new). Hence software doesn't work,
if again installed after an uninstall with wrong configuration.
This makes user thing there is a bug despite having entered all config data correctly during installation.
Solution should be:
- rename old config to *old and install new config properly
- ask user to confirm to overwrite existing config
The new installer (-8.1) now creates shortcuts in the startmenu for each config file.
Also, if config files exist, they are moved to *.old and the new ones are installed in the right path so that they are used.
When doing this, the user is informed that the file was moved to *.old.
Please give feedback
|with 8.1 even worse: there are no config files at all written to c:\ProgramData\Bareos - directory is empty. Links in task menu are present.|
Problem seems to be related to old bacula installation on that system. This does not seem to work.
Make sure to first uninstall bacula before actually installing bareos.
