I am curious as to what people using FreeBSD use for a Backup Solution. Are there any Comercial software available for Tape Backup Solutions that run well on FreeBSD?

I'm looking at using a Dell PowerVault 110T LTO tape drive and was looking for software to utilize to backup the 10 servers and growing in my server farm.

Thank you,

I am sure Bacula can handle your setup. I am also sure Amanda will do the job. If I were in your position, I would try both. Run one for a week or two and then the other. See which works best for you.

There are some minor catches with Bacula on FreeBSD for running under the 5X branch with the latest version of bacula. You can follow the threads at the bacula email archive on sourceforge. If you are running FBSD 4.8 you should be fine. There was/is some change to the SCSI (if I recall correctly) coding that Bacula has trouble with.

You would be most welcome to email the bacula list at:
bacula-users (at)
and ask about your setup and possibilities as well as what you want to do per schedules, drives, etc.
