Script to Add the Exclude List in Windows Platform


We are using Netbackup and we are managing multipule Master & Media servers. Currently we are facing diffeculties with adding the exclude list for the clinet.

We are having around 1500 clients machines (all Windows Platform)., manually adding the exclide list is difficult for all 1500 servers and also there may be the error while addidng.

Any one have the script to add the exclude list from particular master server to all the clients for that master server.


If any have any idea, kindly share it.

it will update exclude list to all clients..

selecting 50-100 clients would be the better idea.

I do realize that this is a month-old post, but noticed a new, similar discussion.

The solution is to use 'bpgetconfig' to obtain existing Exclude List, modify it, then use bpsetconfig to update client (one at a time).
