I'm very new to DP and but I have long experience with Netbackup that
I'm trying to port over to this new product.
We're having lots & lots of problems with mountpoints & disk
rearrangements on both windows & unix clients. Up until now, the
filesystem lists have been specified per clients. The environment has
grown to a point, though, that this is now a serious management issue.
I'm trying to push to abandon the current "everything specified"
arrangement and go to using groupings of clients & self-discovery.
My reading of the fine manual suggests, so far, that the method is to
use "Disk Discovery" for clients and "private exclusions" to keep from
over backing up stuff. Am I on the right track here? Any general
I was told recently that Disk Discovery does not work with a Windows
client. Reading the fine manual, I haven't found anything like this
Can anybody confirm or deny?
TIA - Mark
