We are testing TI Echo Enterprise Server for hot-imaging linux servers and we require ability to exclude directories including subdirectories on a full system backup (not a data backup), re-partitioning/moving exclude data is not an option. I have read too many posts and not found an answer which works for linux agent. So, on the linux agent using management console backup wizard for a partition 'sda1' how can I exlude this directory tree?: /exclude/subfolder/file I have tried: Exclude masks: /exclude/ /exclude /exclude/* /exclude/*/ /exclude/*.* /exclude/*.*/ exclude/ exclude exclude/* exclude/*/ exclude/*.* exclude/*.*/ C:\exclude\ C:\exclude C:\exclude\* C:\exclude\*\ C:\exclude\*.* C:\exclude\*.*\ \exclude\ \exclude \exclude\* \exclude\*\ \exclude\*.* \exclude\*.*\ ^(curious as the resulting .tib always has C: as root and lack of docs). Nothing works, the /exclude/subfolder/file is always in the resulting .tib. Any ideas?
