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 under
/usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list and it needs to contain all the exclusion 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.
