When setting up a Connection Policy to Disable Network backups if a DLO Clientmachine is not within a certain IP address range, multiple entries will supersedeeach other.For example if a Connection Policy is setup as the following:Connection Type:IP address rangeComputers that "are not" in this IP address range:IP4:192.168.2.100 to 192.168.2.125Desktop Agent behavior:-Disable network backupIf a machine has an IP address of 192.168.2.101 the backup will work because it iswithin that range (Example 1).Example 1However, if you add another range of IP addresses:Computers that "are not" in this IP address range:IP4:192.168.2.100 to 192.168.2.125192.168.2.150 to 192.168.2.175Desktop Agent behavior:-Disable network backupNow the same machine that has an IP address of 192.168.2.101 the network backupwill not run because it does not fall into the second range of IP addresses eventhough it does fall into the first (Example 2).Example 2
To prevent backups from occurring for DLO Clients that are in specific ranges, create a Connection Policy to block backups for specific IP address ranges.
Doing this will allow clients to run backups if they are not in the excluded ranges.
