How to capture an imgae from HPUX 11i v2 while excluding some mount points or directories.

Hi,

I have an HP-UX B.11.23 U ia64 machine[rx2620].
I want to capture image of it using Ignite but want to exclude one mount point.

I have put print_manifest and bdf output here:

File System layout

LVM Device file mount point size fs type
/dev/vg00:
/dev/vg00/lvol1 /stand 512 vxfs
/dev/vg00/lvol2 swap 12288

/dev/vg00/lvol4 /cics 20480 vxfs
/dev/vg00/lvol5 /home 10240 vxfs
/dev/vg00/lvol6 /opt 20480 vxfs
/dev/vg00/lvol7 /tmp 2048 vxfs

Now while capturing image I want to exclude file system /cics so that my image is lesser. Is it possible to specify any option wherein i can exclude this from image. I am using C.7.5.142 Ignite version.

Thanks in advance.

From the man page:

-x exclude=file|dir

Excludes the file or directory from the archive. When a directory is specified, no files beneath that directory will be stored in the archive.

Hi,

You can use like below if you want take entire VG00 but exclude /cics.

#/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -I -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/cics


You can also run make_tape_recovery interactively using "-i" option to allow selection of files and directories that are to be included in the recovery archive.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

try this.

make_tape_recovery â v -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/cics -a /dev/rmt/0mn

Thanks a lot for the response.


Does this option hold true for 'make_sys_image' too ?

Not according to the man page.

Hi:

You should note that the definitive answers Pete provides come from those things called "manpages". They really are your best friend.
