NBU7.0.1 - Backup include and exclude list.

Created: 12 Sep 2012 | 1 comment

Hi all,

Refering to url:

I found that there is some problem with NBU v7.0.1 where the "backup System State and Shadow Copy" having problem to exclude from backup if in include list, "ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES" is listed. Did this bug already fix?

Will this bug also affected my othere FS exclusion if "ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES" is included in my backup list.

exp: if "ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES" option is enable in my include list, however there is some file i would like to exclude(c:\tmp, .....) to backup. Will my exclude option work.

Many thanks.

There have been MANY NBU fixes for System State and Shadow Copy Components over the last 2 years.
There is no longer any need to exclude these directives.

If you tell us the OS version on your client and the exact error that you are seeing in Job Details, we can provide better assistance.

All of these fixes are included in 7.1.x and 7.5.x patches.
( and are latest versions.)

Please upgrade your master first, followed by media server(s), then clients.
