BACULA: encrypt messages with gnupg and send them to bsmtp


Dear Readers

We like to pipe the bacula bsmtp-Messages through gpg because our backup-script run by the RunBeforeJob Option produces very sensitive information.

Is there a possibility to do this ?

# this works
echo 'streng geheim' | gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /usr/sbin/bsmtp -h mail.myhost.ch -f test@myhost.ch -s "test" dummy@myhost.ch

# but inside bacula-dir.conf this fails :
mailcommand = "gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /usr/sbin/bsmtp -h mail.myhost.ch -f \"\(Bacula\) %r\" -s \"Bacula: %t %e of %c %l\" %r"

# and this one fails too
mailcommand = " | gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /usr/sbin/bsmtp -h mail.myhost.ch -f \"\(Bacula\) %r\" -s \"Bacula: %t %e of %c %l\" %r"

Thanks

Denis

This should work, it might be that the bacula user doesn't know where gpg is located, so putting full path might work. This is what the original looks like:

Code:
mailcommand = "/sbin/bsmtp -h localhost -f \"\(Bacula\) \<%r\>\" -s \"Bacula: %t %e of %c %l\" %r"
Try something like this:

Code:
mailcommand = "/usr/bin/gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /sbin/bsmtp -h localhost -f \"\(Bacula\) \<%r\>\" -s \"Bacula: %t %e of %c %l\" %r"
The second one you posted wouldn't work cause well, why would you start off with a | (pipe) for the command?

It doesn't work :

22-Jul 08:58 typhon-dir JobId 296: message.c:481 Mail prog: usage: gpg [options] --encrypt [filename]
22-Jul 08:58 typhon-dir JobId 296: Error: message.c:492 Mail program terminated in error.
CMD=/usr/bin/gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /usr/sbin/bsmtp -h mail.myhost.ch -f "(Bacula) wgsupport@myhost.ch" -s "Bacula: Backup OK of amd64-fd Incremental" wgsupport@myhost.ch
ERR=Child exited with code 2

Any ideas ?

The gpg-key is allready imported ;.) ...

What happens if you run:

Code:
/usr/bin/gpg --encrypt --always-trust -a -r wgsupport@myhost.ch - | /usr/sbin/bsmtp -h mail.myhost.ch -f "(Bacula) wgsupport@myhost.ch" -s "Bacula: Backup OK of amd64-fd Incremental" wgsupport@myhost.ch
Manually from the command?
