Exclusion and include list in file system.

Exclusion and include list in file system.
 
Hi All,
 
As the data size of the file system /notes/ln93_9 is too high. We have enabled multistream for the policy 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1.
 
And added the file sytem in the exclusion list : exclude_list.2_Notes_unix_ln93app1.Full_daily
 
Configured a new policy for the file system /notes/ln93_9 . which runs on first saturday of every month. Policyname : 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1_LN93_9
 
But my need is exclusion must happen for the file system /notes/ln93_9 in the policy 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1.
 
At the same time i need to include the mail database /notes/ln93_9/mail/* in the filesystem /notes/ln93_9 to be included in the same policy with the inclusion list.
 
Please find the exclude and inclusion list given below.
 
 
Policy Name : 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1
 
Backup slection : ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES
 
Scheduled : Daily full backup
 
 
 
 
Policy Name : 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1_LN93_9
 
Backup selection : /notes/ln93_9
 
scheduled : Full backup at the first saturday of the month.

  • From bpbkar log, it seems the exclude_list & include_list are working as expected...

    Some example of exclusion in your files:
     
    18:08:34.669 [13565980] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /notes/ln93_9/mail1.box by exclude_list entry /notes/ln93_9/*
    18:08:34.670 [13565980] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /notes/ln93_9/mail2.box by exclude_list entry /notes/ln93_9/*
    18:08:34.670 [13565980] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /notes/ln93_9/mail7.ntf by exclude_list entry /notes/ln93_9/*
    18:08:34.670 [13565980] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /notes/ln93_9/mail7ex.ntf by exclude_list entry /notes/ln93_9/*
    ...
    18:19:26.628 [16908370] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /notes/ln93_9/nmg by exclude_list entry /notes/ln93_9/*
     
    and it did include this one:
    18:23:56.473 [13565980] <4> bpbkar PrintFile: /notes/ln93_9/mail/bgaw3.nsf
     
    Maybe you want to tell us which file exactly you found is not in the backup completion.

  • is your exlude and include lists are not getting honored?

    if yes, disable the muitistream for the policy 2_Notes_unix_ln93app1 and test it once again.

  • Thanks for the reply nagala.

    As you said my exclude and include lists are not getting honoured.

    even after disabling multi stream. Still facing the same issue

  • Please post client's bpbkar log.

    This will show us how include and exclude lists are interpreted.
