bee_installation_manager Silent Install

Use the BWeb Registration URL generated by the wizard with the bee_installation_manager like in the example below to perform a silent deployment:

./bee_installation_manager --director @@director-address@@ --download_area @@customer@@ --version @@bee-version@@ --link @@bweb-registration-url@@ --silent

The options are detailed as follows:

  • @@director-address@@ refers to an IP or FQDN of the Bacula Director the client will be registered on
  • @@customer@@ refers to your personalized area string. You can find this information in the Welcome Package
  • @@bee-version@@ should be replaced by the version of Bacula Enterprise Edition you purchased (12.x.y, 10.x.y)
  • @@bweb-registration-url@@ refers to the URL obtained in the QR Code/Registration Wizard

Advanced usage with arguments

All the choices selected during the session can alternately be provided via command-line arguments. This can be useful for automated deployment.

The bee_installation_manager -h option provides the description of all usable arguments:

usage: bee_installation_manager [-h] [-c CONFIG] [-d DIRECTOR]
[-da DOWNLOAD_AREA] [-v VERSION] [-l LINK]
[-o LOG] [-s] [-t {FD,SD,DIR}]
[-r {release,beta,nightly}] [-p PLATFORM]
[-pkg {debian,rpm,windows}]
[-bp BWEB_PASSWORD]
[-fw [FIREWALL [FIREWALL ...]]]
[plugins [plugins ...]]

-c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
config file path (defaulted to /root/.bee_installation
_manager/bee_installation_manager.ini)
-d DIRECTOR, --director DIRECTOR
director address (for firewall). Can be deduced from
link.
-da DOWNLOAD_AREA, --download_area DOWNLOAD_AREA
Download Area code
-v VERSION, --version VERSION

-t {FD,SD,DIR}, --type {FD,SD,DIR}
installation type (only one can be selected at a time,
FD by default)
-r {release,beta,nightly}, --repo {release,beta,nightly}
allow installation of release, beta or nightly
versions (release by default)
-p PLATFORM, --platform PLATFORM

-pkg {debian,rpm,windows}, --package {debian,rpm,windows}

-bp BWEB_PASSWORD, --bweb_password BWEB_PASSWORD

-fw [FIREWALL [FIREWALL ...]], --firewall [FIREWALL [FIREWALL ...]]
one or several firewall(s) to configure. None means
configure all detected firewalls

Use -t (type) to enable Director+BWeb or Storage deamon installation.

Use -s to install without session keyboard interruption (usefull for batch installation), in conjunction with specific arguments or, alternativelly, with a config file (-c argument). A config file should be a simple text file and arguments should be provided in the [Parser] section. For example if the /tmp/bee_config.ini file contains:

[Parser]
download_area = MyName-0123456789abcd
director = 192.168.0.14
log = /var/log/bacula/bee_installation_manager.log

Running bee_installation_manager -s -c /tmp.bee_config.ini will proceed to the File Deamon installation and firewall configuration without keyboard interruption, and produce a log in /var/log/bacula/bee_installation_manager.log.
