how can I only backup /var/images for my redhatlinux client

Hi Expert,

I want to backup /var/images only not backup all_local_drives in order to save disk space and time.

I put "/var/images"in Backup Selections, but after backup, nothing was backed up.

Could anyone help me on this issue? Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Lacey

  • when the backup is compleated.. what is the Kilobytes its wrriten ?  you can find it in activity Moniter.

    Do you have any Exclude list in place in the client in location 

    /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list

    if yes.. make sure exclude_list file does not have the /var/images listed and try again.

  • If you use " in your selection then remove them. If not create a directory /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpbkar on the client and rerun the backup. Post the job details and the log file and we will take a look. Also post the policy info up bppllist policyname -L

  • Thanks for all your answers revarooo and RamNagalla.

    I made exclude_list file but I forgot it, thanks for RamNagalla's remind.

    After removing the exclude list, the backup is OK now.

    Thank you again!
