Package: bacula-director-mysql
Version: 5.0.1-1~bpo50+1
Severity: normal


The "Max Run Time" directive for Bacula Director is described at [1] like this:
| Max Run Time = time
|   The time specifies the maximum allowed time that a job may run, counted from
|   when the job starts, (not necessarily the same as when the job was 

However, the job start is something like 10 seconds from the scheduled time even
if the job never starts due to waiting in the queue of SD. The end result is 
even if the job never runs, the job is cancelled after the time expires as if
"Max Run Sched Time" was specified instead of "Max Run Time". See attached a log
for such a job as an example.

Hi Teodor,

I've tested the "Max Run Time" directive in the current version 7.4.3
and there it apparently works as expected.

Therefore I'm closing this bug.

In case you are still experiencing this bug on a current version of
bacula, please reply to this email.

 - Carsten
