none
Folder and File exclusions ignored

    שאלה

  • After the battle of the Storage Pool I have noticed an issue which is more than annoying.

    I have 3 Protection Groups, which littlerally all have the same settings but with different space allocations. The issue at hand is this:

    I want to protect the user dir of all users on their mashines. I want to exclude temp internet files, downloads, and %appdata%\local\temp.

    So the User Patch is included, and below the aforementioned dirs are excluded.

    Additionally, .avi,.iso,.mov,.mp3,.mp4,.mpg,.pkr,.skr,.vdi,.vmcx,.vmdk are also to be excluded.

    Result:

    EVERYTHING is backed up to the DPM, none of the options that are supposed to be excluded are in fact excluded and this is REALLY doing my head in because there is litterally no other option I can change in order to make the DPM do what I want it to do. Please help.

    Yes: This issue is apparent in ALL protection groups.

  • Updating to DPM 2012 did indeed sort the Problem. Allthough I have no idea why. Looking at traffic and the way clients are affected by the DPM server, nothing has changed. Guess it was a hickup in the Server itself, which corrected itself when it was Updated to DPM 2012.

  • Hi Eerazor,

    Let see if we can figure out why your DPM server is doing this. First could you please post information regarding the version of DPM and patchlevel of DPM.

  • Trying it another way I decided to use another Post as a reference by not allowing certain Directories:

    %userprofile%\downloads\*.* /s

    %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\*.* /s

    Result according to log on Windows 7:

    1158    13C0    03/02    15:03:59.625    18    fsutils.cpp(2091)            WARNING    Failed: Hr: = [0x80990a53] : Invalid file path:c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\appdata\local\temp\*.* /s\

    Someone help me out. What does %UserProfile% have to do with SystemProfile?

  • Hello,

    I have not seen this behavior before. Placing the Windows 7 logs aside for now.
    You have set up exclusions of specific directories as per:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff399385.aspx

    Is this correct?

    Even after this, you can still go into the recovery console and actually drill down into the directory that you have specified to NOT backup, correct?

  • Yes, the exclusions where done as per the Technet article. Inclusions for Document first. The subfolders (inside Document) as exclusion next.

    I can drilldown to the directory AND I can recover the files there that are not supposed to be backed up. This also includes the afrorementioned file type exclusions.

  • Hi,

    Look at this URL and try it out on one of the server/computers that should have the exclusion in place.

  • Apologies for the late Reply. It has been an extremly hectic month.

    Thank you for the link. Having checked the entires there and compared them to a couple of test systems, I find no problems. I am going to update to DPM 2012 soon and hopefully that issue will sort itself. Will let you know how that turns out.
