Here is some more information on the system Ted had posted about. He was
covering for me while I was out ill this week. The DSM.OPT file for that
and no other domain statements. When the incremental backup starts you get
these messages. See that the Q: drive is listed differently??
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\c$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\d$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\m$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume 'Q:\'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\s$'
When the incremental on the Q: drive completes, the 126.96.36.199 client now
refers to it as the '\*' filespace.
04/03/2004 02:02:52 Normal File--> 2,167,078,912
04/03/2004 02:02:52 Successful incremental backup of '\\sgtpepper\q$\*'
The filespace information on the TSM server shows \\sgtpepper\q$ and hasn't
gotten updated. The drive is mapped as part of a preschedulecmd script that
issues the following command:
"C:\Program Files\SnapDrive\sdcli" snap mount -k f -s
sqlsnap__sgtpepper__recent -d q

Subject: Re: Backup completion / BACKUP_END on network FileSpaces?
I don't think include/exclude would really interfere with this. I am
focusing on the messages
04/07/2004 02:07:28 Successful incremental backup of '\\getback\q$\*'
04/08/2004 07:47:50 Successful incremental backup of '\\gwise99\gwise\*'
These indicate that somewhere along the line the file specification is
being made with the '\*' at the end of the file system name. Even if he
excluded every file in those file systems, a successful incremental backup
of \\getback\q$ should cause the file space last backup date to be
updated. However, since an incremental backup of \\getback\q$\* is not
considered a full incremental backup (because of the '\*' qualifier), it
doesn't get updated.
My money (all two cents of it!) says that somewhere there is a DOMAIN
statement or other file specification like this:

Ted - Does 'dsmc q inclexcl' show any "interference" with that intention?
