This is the second time I run into the error “Authorization key rejected by Storage daemon.”
It makes backups and restores impossible. Most traces / explanations on the internet will point at FD hostname or SD hostname or key mismatch issues.
That is of course always possible, but if you had it working until a week ago when you updated – please don’t let them discourage you. This error will also occur for any version 7 client connecting to a version 5 server. I’ve had it on my Macbook after running “port upgrade outdated” and just now on my FreeBSD desktop during a migration restore.
The jobs will abort after the client is asked to send/receive files.
Debug output of the storage daemon shows that this is in fact a client error!
the red herring, a bacula error message saying
Authorization key rejected by Storage daemon
is completely wrong.
They just abstracted / objectified their logging a little too much. The SD received the error “client didn’t want me” and has to pass it own. Not helpful. Sorry guys 🙂
As a warning / example, here have a look at the log:

As you saw the restore aborts while a status client is doing just fine.
The same client is now running its restore without ANY issue after doing no more than downgrading the client to version 5.

All fine, soon my data will be back in place.
(Don’t be shocked by the low restore speed, my “server” is running the SDs off a large MooseFS share built out of $100 NAS storages.
I used to have the SDs directly on NAS and got better speeds with that but I like distributed storage better than speed)
