About excluding Exchange items from backups
If you do not want to back up certain databases, you can create an exclude list. When NetBackup runs a NetBackup for Exchange backup policy, NetBackup ignores the items that appear in the exclude list.
For more information on how to create an exclude list by using the NetBackup Administration Console, see one of the following:
NetBackup excludes certain files and directories by default. These default exclusions always appear in the Administration Console's exclude list. The default exclusions are as follows:
You can exclude specific databases from a backup, both for the databases that exist in a DAG or on a standalone Exchange server. You can specify the exclude list entry under All Policies or under a specific policy or schedule.
Table: Example Exchange entries in an exclude list provides an example of an Exchange entries that you can add to an exclude list.
Table: Example Exchange entries in an exclude list
This entry ...
The database named Database2.
You can use the same Microsoft information Store:\ directive for both DAG and standalone databases.
Note that Microsoft Exchange Database Availability Groups:\Database 2 is an invalid exclude entry.
