way for this? On other systems, I had previously created a subdirectory
/var/run/bareos in such cases, then made it writable for the respective

to "pid directory". In NetBSD, however, /var/run seems to be emptied by
default on every reboot, which surely has good reasons and makes this
approach more difficult.
Have the startup script in rc.d create the /var/run/bareos directory.
This is what I do for jenkins which has a similar problem.
2) It would be good to have a "best practice" logger configuration.
Currently Baroes cannot create its logfile in /var/log/ due to missing
permissions. According to  the messages should at least appear in the
syslog. I will test this again. What would be useful for most users?
Syslog + newsyslog configuration? Then this might be something for the

directory with appropriate permissions. I think samba does this for
