Bacula Windows Failover Cluster Setup



Bacula Client and Windows Cluster Service

I run a Windows Cluster on Windows 2012 R2. I have a File Server in the Clustered environment and wanted to make sure I get Cluster's file share backedup. I also run a Scale-out File Server in the cluster and the principle is the same for both scenarios. What I go over will work for backing files in those services. If there are Hyper-V services in the environment some tweeking needs to be done but I will cover that in a different article.

Note on Scale-Out File Server

On Scale-Out File Servers, you will want to add a Client Access Point Resource to the Fail Over Cluster Role since Scale-Out file servers can be accessed by any node, and this will give the backup part of it a dedicated IP that will always be on the owner host
