Exclusions for Incremental Jobs in Backup Exec 2012
There are two different scenarios that I would like to use the Exclusions feature for Incremental Backups in Backup Exec 2012 for.
1. I would like to Run a weekly full backup of my Vsphere 5.1 virtual machines, however, for the daily incremental of these virtual machines, I would like to exclude a couple of the machines. I see that there is a Exclusions feature in the job setup for Incremental type jobs, but I am unfamiliar with the syntax to use to exclude these two machines from the Incremental backup. I cannot find any articles on how to do this either.
2. Similar to the above, but with a physical machine. I have a Physical machine that is running SQL Server. I would like to run a Weekly Full Backup, a daily Incremental/Differential backup and an hourly Log Backup. I want the Log backup to only backup the SQL Logs, which means that I need to exclude all of the local drives, the System State and the Utility partition from this backup. Once again, I don't know the syntax to do this. I have tried typing in C:, D:, etc into the exclusions but the job still tries to backup those drives when I just want it to backup the SQL Logs.
Any tips you can provide would be awesome. Thank you.
