I upgraded my FreeBSD 10 Bacula server's Perl installation from 5.18 to
5.20 yesterday. This morning I discovered that the the Bacula Catalog
backup script failed.
2014-06-11 07:37:35 bacula-dir JobId 1809: shell command: run
BeforeJob "/usr/local/share/bacula/make_catalog_backup.pl MyCatalog"
2014-06-11 07:37:35 bacula-dir JobId 1809: BeforeJob: env: perl: No
such file or directory
2014-06-11 07:37:35 bacula-dir JobId 1809: Error: Runscript: BeforeJob
returned non-zero status=127. ERR=Child exited with code 127
Examining the script file fond the first line of:
Modifying it to:
Resolves the issue.
It appears from looking at one of my FreeBSD 10 systems that I haven't
made the upgrade to 5.20 yet, that the perl link was created as
/usr/bin/perl instead of /usr/local/bin/perl
Was this change intentional? Shouldn't there be a note in
/ust/ports/UPDATING or the like pointing this out? I am guessing its
likely that other ports / scripts could be effected by this.
