Bacula used to have a bare metal restore feature (a separate CD if I
remember right), but doing bare metal recovery is extremely hard because
of so many different boot procedures in different distros and a
constantly changing boot procedures on a given machine. It is no longer
supported because if I continued to do so I would have no time for Bacula.
If you keep good backups, I have found a viable substitute to be:
1. Restore the OS from scratch on fresh disks using the distro's install
2a. Restore the last Bacula backup
2b. Restore the changed files from the Bacula backup in a temporary
location and move them into place.
Of course, the Bacula Enterprise bare metal restore is better because it
is much more reliable and allows easy bare metal restore of many
different machines (i.e. adapted for a big enterprise situation).
