Maximum Volume Bytes without effect

Marian Neubert
Hi all,

i'm facing an issue with an setup, where Maximum Volume Bytes seems to
have no effect at all.
The Pool RemoteFile has only one Volume Remote-0009 with current size of
nearly 1TB, Status "Append". But the total Byte Size (usage) ist only
about 300GB.

Could you give me a hint, whats wrong with my config and why the
creation of new Volumes didn't happen?


Pool-definition:

Pool {
   Name = RemoteFile
   Pool Type = Backup
   Label Format = Remote-
   Recycle = yes
   AutoPrune = yes
   Volume Retention = 180 days
   Maximum Volume Bytes = 100G
   Maximum Volumes = 5
   Action On Purge = Truncate
}


Client and Job-definition:

Client {
   Name = fm-addc-fd
   Address = fm-addc.home.netz
   FDPort = 9102
   Catalog = MyCatalog
   Password = "NotListedHere"
   File Retention = 30 days
   Job Retention = 3 months
   AutoPrune = yes
}

Job {
   Name = "Backup_fm-addc"
   JobDefs = "DefaultJob"
   Client = fm-addc-fd
   Pool = RemoteFile
   FileSet="fm-addc - Full Set"
}

Thanks in advance!
/Marian

Hi Marian,

Your pool resource definition looks fine to me.

If you have changed the pool configuration you will have to update
its configuration using the update command from bconsole.
Bacula will do it automatically only when your define a specific
pool resource for the first time. Any subsequent change requires
the use of update command.
