Yes that is more or less what we want to do. We have tivoli here for
backup so I'm somewhat familiar with inclexcl files. The filesystem I want
to backup is a shared home.
Right now I do have a policy...mmlspolicy home -L does return a policy. So
if I did not want to backup core and cache files I could create a backup
policy using /var/mmfs/mmbackup/.mmbackupRules.home and place in it?:
I did a test run of mmbackup and I noticed I got a template put in that
[root at cl002 ~]# ll -al /var/mmfs/mmbackup/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 15 07:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Jan 4 10:42 ..
-r-------- 1 root root 1177 Feb 15 07:43 .mmbackupRules.home
So I can copy this off into /var/mmfs/etc for example and to use next time
with my edits.
What is normally used to schedule the mmbackup? Cronjob? dsmcad?
