Summary0000890: .bvfs_update does not always create all cache enties. This results in a not working webui restore tree
Description.bvfs_update is a bconsole command to update the cache needed for the other bvfs commands to should directory and file information about backup jobs, see

It is used by the bareos-webui to show the restore tree.
(It is not used by the bconsole restore command).
Steps To ReproduceBest pick a backup job with backup level Full, say jobid=5

*.bvfs_clear_cache yes
*.bvfs_update joibid=5

*.bvfs_lsdir jobid=1 path=
only returns a single entry, but not the / entry:
12 0 0 A A A A A A A A A A A A A A .

In this case, the PathHierarchy table will be empty. Check via bconsole:
*.sql query="select * from PathHierarchy;"
No results to list.

Correct result of the lsdir command would have at least two entries:
*.bvfs_lsdir jobid=1 path=
12 0 0 A A A A A A A A A A A A A A .
11 0 0 A A A A A A A A A A A A A A /
Additional InformationA workaround that sometimes worked is to restart the director.

echo ".bvfs_clear_cache yes" | bconsole
systemctl restart bareos-dir.service
echo ".bvfs_update" | bconsole
TagsNo tags attached.
