Encrypted and unencrypted jobs

mailing
Hello,

some days ago I enabled data encryption in my bacula 5.2 setup.
I followed the instructions at http://www.bacula.org/5.2.x-manuals/en/main/main/Data_Encryption.html and it works like a charm.

In my environment, I use bacula to back up rather huge amounts at data (about 100-200 TB) and I do not need encryption for this data, but I also use bacula to create normal backups of machines which contain only small amounts of data (e.g. /etc and /home) and there I would definitely prefer an encrypted backup in case a tape gets into "the wrong hands".
Since some of the clients connected to the huge storage system need to be backed up in both use cases, I do not really know, how to handle the situation in bacula.
As far as I understood the manual, you can only decide to encrypt all backups for a client or not to encrypt any of them, but there is no option to differentiate between encrypted and unencrypted jobs, right?
If there is a possibility I simply did not see or any "workaround", that would be great.

Thanks in advance for any input from your side!

Kind Regards,
Philipp Wagner

I think this is accurate.
If there is a possibility I simply did not see or any "workaround", that would be great.
You can deploy two Bacula Clients running on different ports on the same machine. One with encryption enabled, other without it.
Thanks in advance for any input from your side!
