Summary0011974: Bacula-fd start problem
DescriptionIf bacula-client is installed without bacula-server (because that's on another host), the file daemon cannot be started because it's looking for the /var/lib/bacula directory which does not exist.

06-Oct 11:48 sss-fd: ERROR TERMINATION at util.c:871
Working Directory: "/var/lib/bacula" not found. Cannot continue.

Version: 5.2.13 (19 February 2013)
Steps To ReproduceReproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install bacula-client on a host that has no bacula packages installed already
2. I configured the file daemon, but this is probably not necessary to witness the problem.
3. Attempt to start the bacula-fd service; note the error.
Additional InformationWhen I created dirs by hand everything works fine.

sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/bacula
sudo mkdir -p /var/run/bacula

sudo systemctl start bacula-fd
sudo systemctl status bacula-fd
