Summary0000527: Director crashes (not reproduceable) , the first time you go to Jobs section in bat
DescriptionGoing to jobs section in bat causes bareos-dir to crash.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start Bareos-dir if it's not running
2. Launch bat
3. Go to Jobs tab

Bat will appear to hang while populating the jobs list window, but what's actually happened is that bareos-dir has crashed.

If you restart bareos-dir again, without closing bat, bat will reconnect and everything continues as normal. If you quit bat and re-run it, then the problem happens again.

can you please provide the exact version of your OS?

Also, please install the debuginfo package and send the files that are then generated.

It would also be very intersting if you can reproduce the problem on version 15.2

You find the repos here:

I've installed bareos-contrib-debuginfo and made it crash again, but I think something might be missing since the traceback file says 'no symbol table loaded'

Ok this is wierd... I left bat open while I was collecting the info you wanted, and even though bareos-dir crashed, the jobs panel (I assume timed out waiting for the director) displayed a partial data set, stopping at one specific job, that happens to be a Copy job.

Dunno if this helps at all, but the job it seems to have died on contains the following:
# Fake fileset for copy jobs
Fileset {
  Name = None_Full
  Include {
    Options {
      signature = MD5

# Fake client for copy jobs
Client {
  Name = None_Full
  Address = localhost
  Password = "NoNe"
  Catalog = MyCatalog

Job {
  Name = "Copy-Full"
  Type = Copy
  Client = None_Full
  Fileset = None_Full
  Level = Full
  Messages = Standard
  Pool = Full
  Selection Type = PoolUncopiedJobs
  Priority = 100

after this commit:

you should not be obligated to define a fileset for a copy job anymore.

Please check if the problem persists in 15.2.

Thanks for your time and help

I have verified that the problem continues in 15.2 when using the same config files.

I've tried removing the client and Fileset lines from the jobs in question, and the issue persists.

Here are the last lines generated by bat before everything dies:

bat: console/console.cpp:438-0 job_defaults: key=job, value=Copy-Full
bat: console/console.cpp:438-0 job_defaults: key=pool, value=Full
bat: console/console.cpp:438-0 job_defaults: key=messages, value=Standard
bat: console/console.cpp:438-0 job_defaults: key=client, value=*None*

The Job definition now looks like this:
Job {
  Name = "Copy-Full"
  Type = Copy
  Level = Full
  Messages = Standard
  Pool = Full
  Selection Type = PoolUncopiedJobs
  Priority = 100

I've uploaded the backtrace. The core file is 27mb when gzipped, so I can't upload it.

I installed a Centos 6 test system with Bareos 15.2.1-rc2 and did run bat. However, I was not able to reproduce this problem. Of course, I only have a small test setup here.

Please enable "Debug Comm" in bat (Settings -> Preferences -> Debug -> Debug Comm) and run it again.
The the director crashes again, please check the last "send" line from the stdout output of bat.
It should look similar to:

bat: bcomm/dircomm.cpp:276-0 conn 0 send: .defaults job="RestoreFiles"

The text after "send:" is the last command send to the director.

Restart the director and run this command in bconsole, to see if the director also crashes without using bat.

bat was replaced by bareos-webui, so problems with bat won't be handled anymore.
