Yes, I saw this a few days ago.  Don't know what it is offhand, it is indeed 
working the opposite of what it is supposed to.  Do you have any Client OPtions 
set for this node?  What verions of *SM are you runing?  What version of NW 
(5.0, 5.1)?  Do you have any other NW clients?  

Perhaps show us more of your dsm.opt file.

I had posted this a few days ago, but I am not sure if anyone got it (my
Internet email gateway has not been behaving) . . .

Hello, all!

I have a clarification question about include/exclude statements.  One of
our Netware guru's pointed this out to me.  Here's what I have (NetWare 5)
in my dsm.opt file:

EXCLUDE *:\...\*.*

When I perform an incremental backup of the node, the system backs up
everything on the system.  If on the other had I do the following:

EXCLUDE *:\...\*.*

The system does not backup anything except the files in the
data:\users\...\*.* directories.

It seems the system is doing just the opposite of what it's supposed to
since these statements are supposed to the processed from the bottom
statement up. [See excerpt from Tivoli Storage Manager for NetWare Using
the Backup-Archive Client manual.]

These options are checked from the bottom of the include-exclude list up,
until a match is found. If a match is found, the processing stops and
checks whether the option is include or exclude. If the option is include,
the file is backed up. If the option is exclude, the file is not backed

Has something changed?  Can someone explain this?
