Description Johnny Hughes 2013-02-15 12:09:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing bacula-storage-mysql-5.0.0-7.el6.x86_64 sets a symlink
/usr/sbin/dbcheck -> /etc/alternatives/bacula-bscan
This is wrong and causes various malfunctions, such as the script make_catalog_backup.pl failing with a confusing error message claiming that -B was an invalid option for the dbcheck command.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install bacula-director-mysql
2. yum install bacula-storage-mysql
3. ls -l /usr/sbin/dbcheck

Additional Info:
Installing bacula-director-mysql creates the correct symlink:
/usr/sbin/dbcheck -> /etc/alternatives/bacula-dbcheck
Installing bacula-storage-mysql should leave that alone and create the symlink:
/usr/sbin/bscan -> /etc/alternatives/bacula-bscan
The problem appears to be caused by a typo in the postinstall scriptlet of package bacula-storage-mysql which says "--slave /usr/sbin/dbcheck" instead of "--slave /usr/sbin/bscan".
