exclude files not working


I have upgraded nim master and client to TL8,SP6. Now when the mksysb backup ran from master,it is not excluding directories specified in /etc/exclude.rootvg in the client.Instead,mksysb is getting created for all the file systems in the rootvg. This problem only appeared after the TL upgrade.

Any ideas what went wrong here?

Can you show your /etc/exclude.rootvg please? It uses regular expression syntax afaik. Use CODE-tags when posting it, ty.

I am not sure how the mksysb is being taken but would be interested to see what command is being used for the same.

normally "-e" option is used to specify to exclude files listed in /etc/exclude.rootvg. I would check if "-e" option is still there.
