Re: file system

"make_net_recovery" command can do what you want to do. I dun have the access to man page presently so can't provide the exact command. Please read the man page, excluding directories should be simple.

Re: file system

check the man page of make_tape_recovery for more info. Here is an example


# make_tape_recovery -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/var/opt/resmon /var/adm/Syslog.log -a /dev/rmt/0mn

Hi Kumar,

>>I have to take the ignite backup but I have to includes some file/dir and exclude some files and directory from vg00. how to do that<<

are you refering to "Ignite backup to tape" ..? or "ignite backup" uisng Ignite Server

make_tape_recovery --> using tape (DSS)
make_net_recovery --> using Ignite Server

above mentioned both commands you can include and Exclude files and directory,

would recommend you do man make_tape-recovery
to understand the how you can carry on the syntx

Remember

Ignite software use tar for backup and no backup file > 2GB

Thanks

"Remember

That is incorrect. Ignite uses "pax" and will handle files up to 8GB.

Re: file system

basically, you want what ashan noted, inc_entire=vg00 and then exclude the unwanted directories.

If the filesystems are appropriately laid out, very little, if anything, needs to be excluded, as vg00 *should* have only the operating system and whatever additional software has been installed (ie no data application data)
