[Ignite] Exclude certain Filesystems

sexta-feira, 1 de junho de 2012

Using Ignite you have two option to specify the File Systems that will not be backup.

Specifing all Filesystems in "arquive_content" file:
# make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -f /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archive_content

See my excluded list:
# cat /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archive_content
exclude /dir_foo
exclude /dir_bar

This is the default file location if you are doing the backup through tape, if you want perform a "make_net_recovery" use the "/var/opt/ignite/clients/0x{LLA}/recovery/archive_c​ontent" (in the Ignite server).
The -f option is not allowed when using the -x options to specify the contents of the archive.

Specifing each Filesystem in command line (-x flag)
# make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/dir_foo -x exclude=/dir_bar
