Mondo doesn't exclude NFS with -N option

Reported by: unixteam Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.0.0
Component: mondo Version:
Severity: critical Keywords:


When running the mondoarchive command with the -N option, it still stats (and backs up) all files and directories in the NFS directories (20+ NFS mounts) and runs for hours. I'm running mondo I just want to back up the entire server's local mountpoints. How do I get around this problem?

Could you attach the /var/log/mondoarchive.log file please ?

In the mean time as a work around, could you use -E to exclude dirs (separated with |)

Attached is my mondoarchive.log file. I will try the "-E" option in the mean time. Thanks...

Just noticed: I am already specifying the parent directory path of the NFS mounts already, but this still doesn't seem to work. Please suggest the syntax I should use.

As you're not using the latest version, the separator for your version is still a space. So your syntax line should rather be -E '/path1 /path2 ...'

With latest you have to use | as a separator.

Do you still have the issue you reported with the latest answer ? If not I'll close this bug before the next release.

We have recently started testing a minor release version higher, and seems to be doing much better (created only 1 archive instead of 37) . Next week we plan to try to restore that test system next week.
