Subject: Re: [Bacula-users] Job pruning



Humm, you didn't mentioned that you modified the retention periods after installing Bacula, did you?

Anyway, after you modify the retention periods you must run the "update" command on the console to properly update the Catalog...

Hello,

I totally reinstalled the bacula server.
I modified all retentions before starting it.

Now, files, jobs and volumes are pruned according to my directives.
I think the retention period is stored into the database... I just don't
know where.

HTH.
