*NIX exclude lists in NB7

Just in case any of you guys running NB7 on *NIX & don't subscribe to Symantecs Technical Advisory nor keep an eye on the digest etc etc.

The following advisory was recently released:

When exclude lists using wildcards are used on NetBackup 7.0 clients on UNIX/Linux, extra files and directories may be incorrectly excluded from a backup.
http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/355972.htm

Don't normally do this but thought that this was just something to be aware of as you may not be backing up everything you think you are!!

Dunno if I was the first one to spot this one a few weeks back, but I tell you, my support case was escalated at a quantum speed that I seldom experienced within SYMC :)
And the first TN/alert published within 10 days... This is a serious data loss scenario, and I only discovered it by looking at which Oracle files that were backed up, as we saw too many GB being backed up using the standard policy...

Nice to see that they decided to release the EEB as public!

The bpbkar log on the client may contain messages similar to the following:

10:53:16.574 [24681] <4> is_excluded: Excluded /etc/rc0.d by exclude_list entry r*.dbf


that's was a bad bug!

wrobbins...bad yes and seriously worrying, indicative of a deeper issue...a lack of robust regimented testing of some basic functionality. It  makes me uneasy!
