Bareos 19.2.5 is out

Bareos 19.2.5The new Bareos version includes a new oVirt plug-in that supports agentless backups of virtual machines running on oVirt or Red Hat Virtualization (RHV). The plug-in, which was introduced with the first release candidate 19.2.4 rc1, has since been given additional features. It is now possible to store the oVirt credentials in a file instead of using the plug-in options. On top of that, it offers two new options for the restore process: include_disk_aliases and exclude_disk_aliases. In previous versions it was already possible to exclude disks from the snapshot during the backup.


Since future Bareos versions may support only PostgreSQL, we released a new tool that migrates the Bareos catalog. bareos-dbcopy converts the Bareos database from MySQL to PostgreSQL.


Previously available in the contrib repository, the Percona XtraBackup plug-in is now an official part of the backup solution and has been moved to the master branch. Users now get the extension automatically when installing Bareos.
