YES, excludes do not apply to user directed backups.
Your syntax is correct for your exclude.
Have you tried modifying the exclude list from the Win2K master server
for the client in question?
This definitely sounds a bit weird.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] exclude lists on win03
Has anybody had problems with exclude lists on Windows Server 2003?
is Win2K SP3 NBU 4.5 MP4 and client is Win03 NBU 4.5 MP4. I enter the
exclusions the same way that I do on my other Windows clients (for
*.tmp), but the files are not excluded during backups. If I look at the
exclude list on the client's GUI, everything shows up as *.tmp:\. I
this is the problem. I've also tried \*.tmp, .tmp, and tmp - all yield
same weird transformation in the exclude list. I can successfully
specific file on Win03, and identical exclude lists work on 2K and XP.
thoughts before I email support?
Side question - Am I correct in thinking exclude lists don't apply to
