cloptset force statement for systemstate backups?

    Was wondering if anyone has any insight as to forcing a systemstate to backup from the client options set.
    Most of my Windows servers are using a pre-defined clopt from the server and in the local dsm.opt have a few adjustments on a server by server basis. In the past, we weren't doing systemstate... Many of the systems dsm.opt have a statement of "domain ALL-LOCAL -systemstate".

    What I was hoping to do is force the systemstate to backup without forcing ALL-LOCAL to backup. As such I have to domain statements at the top of the server side optionset:

    Code:
    Option                        Sequenc-     Use Optio-     Option Value
                                  e number         n Set
                                                   Value
                                                  (FORCE)
    -------------------------     --------     ----------     ---------------------------------
    DOMAIN                               0             No     ALL-LOCAL
    DOMAIN                               1            Yes     systemstate
    
    
    I added sequence 1 the other day, came back and queried the filespaces on a few nodes, and even ran q systemstate from a few clients as well. Nothing.

    If it can be helped I really don't want to go about and touch every dsm.opt file on every server!

    Thanks!

    The only way I can see you could do it would be to have 2 backup schedules, one for file backups and one to backup systemstate. The domain option is only used when doing an incremental backup with no objects specified. So you could have a separate schedule that has "action=backup subaction=systemstate".

    The alternative is to manually edit every option file to remove/edit the domain option. If you have a software management system such as IBM BigFix or similar, you could use that to remotely edit the option files as well.
