Global exclude list
I would like to suggest adding a "global exclude list" feature to netbackup.
This should be a list that exists next to the current client-based exclude list and is ALWAYS used for every client and every policy.
Why is this useful? For example: our organisation has just started to roll-out SCOM2007 on all servers.
This produces a new list of files-in-use on every server (for example edb.log, edb.tmp, edbtmp.log etc).
Adding these files to the exclude list means editing the exclude list for 700+ clients.
