Package: bacula-fd
Version: 7.0.5+dfsg-3
Severity: important
Tags: ipv6

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Upgrading bacula-fd to . (and then to 7.0.5+dfsg-3) on the
client machines, while the backup server (which runs Debian stable)
still uses 5.2.6+dfsg-9.3 for both bacula-director and bacula-sd.
The server would be really difficult to upgrade, it should really
remain in Debian stable.

Only IPV6 communitation is allowed for bacula between the client and
the server. This may be related to bug #742914 that was precisely
fixed in 7.0.5+dfsg-2.

After this upgrade, I get messages like:

16-Nov 20:13 <server-hostname>. JobId 4415: Start Backup JobId 4415,
16-Nov 20:13 <server-hostname>. JobId 4415: Using Device "MyStorage"
16-Nov 20:13 <client-hostname>-fd JobId 4415: Fatal error: Authorization key
rejected by Storage daemon.
Please see http://www.bacula.org/en/rel-
manual/Bacula_Freque_Asked_Questi.html#SECTION00260000000000000000 for help.
16-Nov 20:13 <server-hostname>. JobId 4415: Fatal error: Bad response to
Storage command: wanted 2000 OK storage
, got 2902 Bad storage

16-Nov 20:13 <server-hostname>. JobId 4415: Error: Bacula <server-hostname>.
5.2.6 (21Feb12):

Prior to this update, everything went well.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Reinstalling previous version from jessie (5.2.6+dfsg-9.3).

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Going back to previous version worked.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I would have expected bacula to run regardless of the versions differences
between client and server.
