Backup image problem with management class

Good morning,



We are running TSM Storage Manager 4.2.2.5. on AIX 4.3.3

We are now trying to use "backup image" to backup a large amount of files.

We created an new management class and changed our include/exclude list (like mentioned in the manuals) to assing the new management class.

include/exclude list lookes like : Incl Image /data/test

The filesystem /data/test resides on a logical volume.



Unfortunately during "backup image" the management class is not assigned. Default management class is used instead.

We changed the include/exclude statements several times like : Incl Image /data/test/* but it still won't work. The only option that works is /.../* which is not quiet what we want. Is there anybody with the same experiences who can support us solving this problem.

Thanks.

You mentioned /data/test to backup as an image, yet you also mentioned it is a filesystem. Check the Logical volume name as it is what you will be calling ie /dev/test. All my images bkups are called by LV name ie /dev/abc123. Looks like it is backing up the JFS not RAW device.

The include statement requires two asterisks after the volume name IE:

INCLUDE /dev/test/*/* BUPIMGMGT



I don't know why, but it works.
