Hi Fabio,
thanks for your reply. (I'm new with bacula).
To make things more clear:
1) Reinstall CentOS and software;
2) Configure database and import catalog
3) Copy last valid configuration for dir, sd,fd and console.
4) Re-attach my disk backup device with last volumes

That's all?

Another question is about Catalog backup. When I need to restore a 
backup, bacula reads catalog and performs restore if possibile. When a 
backup is perfomed, all info are saved on catalog.
 From many how-to I found that people make ct backup directly from 
bacula client and not from script (pg_dump...). Then today I follow this 
method because seems to be the most valid. Why? What method is better?
Can I restore a catalog backup without bacula installed?
Can I restore a catalog backup with bacula installed but without a valid 
catalog imported?

I hope I was clear.

Thanks in advance.
