[rdiff-backup-users] Troubles with --include-list and --exclude-list options
Tue, 2 May 2006 15:57:44 +0200
I am fairly new to rdiff-backup and i'm having some troubles configuring
I'm trying to build and unattended backup script for our hosting
facility. The backup is initiated from the backup server. By default i
want to include everything from the remote server, which if i read the
documentation correctly is default behavior when i specifiy address@hidden::/
Now what i want to do is create an override possibility per host. I'm
using the following syntax to (hopefully) accomplish that:
rdiff-backup --verbosity 5 \
--exclude-filelist /backup/exclude/$i \
--include-filelist /backup/include/$i \
$i is the variable for the remote host which i should backup.
The trouble i'm experiencing is when i try to do the inverted. So what i
thought was possible (with the same command line options) is to exclude
everything by entering a "/" in the exclude file, and include just the
paths i wanted to backup in the include file.
I've been puzzling for some hours now, shifing precedence etc ...
Could anyone show me the magic? or point me in the right direction?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
