make_net_recovery command question

Hi folks!

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

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance!

Re: make_net_recovery command question

Sorry, the command would be with igniteserver2 to perform the backup from igniteserver1:

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?

thx!

Re: make_net_recovery command question

Hi,

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
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: make_net_recovery command question

Thank you very much!! :-)

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?

Re: make_net_recovery command question

Hi Again,

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.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.
