Adding exclusion list for Symantec NetBackup client Backup

In this guide let us see how to exclude some of the filesystems, directories, files from Symantec NetBackup during full backup or increment backup.

In Enterprise backup solution SNBU we have the option to exclude the list of files or folders by creating a file underĀ /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list and it needs to contain all the exclusion list.

#vim /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list

The list of filesystem or directory need to be excluded.

#vim /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list

/dev/shm
/dev/pts
/proc/
/mnt
/sys
/mnt/cdrom
/var/run/
/var/spool/postfix/private/
/var/spool/postfix/public/
/tmp/redis.sock
/tmp/.X11-unix/

That’s it above mentioned excluded locations will be excluded during a full or incremental backup.
