Sung,

Yes, selective backup uses the include/exclude list.

There is no concept of DOMAIN processing for archive or selective backup,
so you need to specify the paths in your OBJECTS list. If your goal is to
selectively back up entire drives (though why one would do this I do not
know), you can update the backup copy groups and change the copy mode to
ABSOLUTE, then just schedule incremental backups.

Another approach would be to define the schedule as ACTION=COMMAND. The
command could be a script that runs on each client machine. In the script
you could automate the creation of the object list, then launch dsmc
commands to back up the objects in the list.

Andy

When Performing Scheduled Selective Backups?






TSM and ADSMers,

I have a question about performing scheduled selective backups.
Is it possible to create a schedule to do a selective backup of the nodes
without having to list each filespace inside the "objects"?

Like for UNIX  can i do
 Options: -subdir=yes
 Objects: "\*.*"

and for Windows
 Options: -subdir=yes
 Objects: "?:\*.*"

and also if you have include or exclude on the clients does selective
backup go thru this list and performs include and excludes as specified in
the  file?

Thanks,

Sung  Lee
