Hi all i have a strange problem, as bacula documentation i can run two or many concurrent jobs if i set "Maximum Concurrent Jobs" more then 1.

And this is work fine for jobs from different servers. But when i have two jobs which does run from one linux server, second job will wait when the first job was finished. Jobs have the same priority (10). Every job has separate pool, volume and storage device.

Bacula-dir and Bacula-sd running on different linux servers.

OS Ubuntu 14.04, Bacula version 5.2.6

report from bconsole

Running Jobs:

i try to add "Maximum Concurrent Jobs" to device section but it did't help.

  FDPort = 9102
  Catalog = MyCatalog
  Password = "WDT0OAXCx57U"          # password for FileDaemon
  File Retention = 30 days            # 30 days
  Job Retention = 6 months            # six months
  AutoPrune = yes                     # Prune expired Jobs/Files
}

Job {
  Name = "arkive03_Share"
  Schedule = "arkbackup"
  FileSet = "Share"
  JobDefs = "ark_Share"
  Client = "arkive03.tumo.lab-fd"
}

Job {
  Name = "arkive03EtcBackup"
  JobDefs = "EtcBackup"
  FileSet = "etc"
  Client = "arkive03.tumo.lab-fd"
}

I do not know what to do. My "share" = 10tb , "etc" = 4mb, and i need wait when bacula will finished backup 10tb and will start backup 4 mb. It's crazy.

Adding "Maximum Concurrent Jobs" to storage definition in Storages.conf on Badula director and to device definition on bacula-sd resolve this issue.

storages.conf on bacula director

Storage {
  Name = Arkive03_other
  Address = arkive03.tumo.lab                # N.B. Use a fully qualified name here
  SDPort = 9103
  Password = "SomePassword"
  Device = Arkive03_other
  Media Type = File
  Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 5
}

bacula-sd.conf

Device {
  Name = Arkive03_other
  Media Type = File
  Archive Device = /local/bacula/backup/other
  LabelMedia = yes;                   # lets Bacula label unlabeled media
  Random Access = Yes;
  AutomaticMount = yes;               # when device opened, read it
  RemovableMedia = no;
  AlwaysOpen = no;
  Maximum Concurrent Jobs = 5
}
