Bareos-14.2.4 Maintenance Release published

We've published a new maintenance release 14.2.4 in our subscription repositories, the source code is as always available on GITHub.


This release contains several bugfix, including one major bugfix, relevant for those of you using backup to disk with autolabeling enabled.


Bug #437 can lead to loss of a 64k block of data, if all the following conditions are met:

  • backups are written to disk (tape backups are not affected)
  • autolabelling is enabled
  • a backup spans over multiple volumes
  • the additional volumes are newly created and labeled during the backup.

If existing volumes are used for backups spanning over multiple volumes, the problem does not occur. We recommend to update to the latest packages as soon as possible.

If an update is not possible immediately,

  • autolabeling should be disabled and
  • volumes should be labelled manually

until the update can be installed.
