I have two Ignite servers and now I want to perform a Ignite backup from those servers in question. Normally I use the following command:
# make_net_recovery -s igniteserver1 -A -x inc_entire=vg00
But now,when performing an Ignite copy from igniteserver1 I don't want to copy all the copies this server contains. Thus, I need to use the "-x exclude=/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/", so I was wondering if the final command could be something like:
make_net_recovery -s igniteserver1 -A -x exclude=/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=vg00
Thanks in advance!

make_net_recovery -s igniteserver2 -A -x exclude=/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=vg00
Is this correct with both -x inc_entire and exlude?

Your command syntax is correct. You don't need to specify -A which is same as "-x inc_entire" option.
Simply use this.
make_net_recovery -v -s igniteserver2 -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives

But have another question. Do I have to exclude also the /var/opt/ignite/clients folder?
wouldn't it better be to exclude the whole /var/opt/ignite folder?

You can do that. But /var/opt/ignite/clients folder will not consume that much space. It has the configuration details, ignite backup logs, flist, manifest, etc.
If you want exclude the everything you can do that always.
