[olug] at my wits end...

I spent about a decade using Bacula at work.  Had lots of experience with a
few dozen Windows clients, Linux clients, and even wrote some Perl-based
automation to go client-less auto-snapshotting SAN volumes, mounting them,
and backing them up.  Perhaps I can help.  Do you want to share your client
config (sans passwords)?

P.S. I'm in the Discord now if you get in there.  I'm karver#3900.
