Exclude with File Patterns

To back up the NetWare File System, an exclude must be made by specifying file patterns. The exclude with file patterns only allows the use of '*' (any character string) and '?' (single arbitrary character).

Examples for exclude list with file patterns:

  • Backing up '/var' without '/var/tmp' but with directory '/var/tmp1':
  • Backing up '/var' without any directory '*/tmp*':
  • Backing up source '/usr' avoiding '*.o', '*.tmp', 'a.out' and 'old*.c' files and all 'old*' directories:
 *.o, *.tmp, a.out, old*.c, /old*

  • Backing up '/usr' without '/usr/var/spool' and '/usr/var/log':
 /usr/var/spool, /usr/var/log
  • Avoid all 'syslog####.log' files:
  • Backing up NetWare NSS Volume 'VOL1:' without 'VOL1:tmp':

If you want to exclude a specific path then put the entire path in the exclude list. Several excludes require a separation by commas.
