The libraries that begin with the letter Q and that contain user data and those libraries will be omitted from this backup item.

The libraries that begin with letter Q and that contain user data will also part of this backup item. Check the IBM webpage for the list of user libraries that begin with letter Q.

  • *ALLDLO

    If you select this option, the user ID must be enrolled in the QDLS.

    Include the documents, folders, and distribution objects in the backup.

  • *LINK

    Include the system and user directories and the user objects that are contained in the directories.

  • History logs

    This includes the IBM i log files QSYS/QHST*.

Note: The default subclient backs up the pre-defined backup items in the list.

Custom subclient content

Select this option to add directories, folders, and files to the backup content.

You can use wildcards to define content for a subclient. For a list of supported wildcards, see Supported Wildcards for the IBM i File System Agent Agent.

Backup Library content(s) as objects

Note: Only select this option if the objects in the library do not need consistency and there are not dependent objects.

Select this option to back up the library content as objects. When you select this option, the software can use multiple streams for a single library backup.

This option does not save attributes of library.

Notes:

If the file or directory name that you want to add to the content contains a wildcard character, you must add an escape ("\") before the wildcard character.

The Network File System (NFS) is not included in the backup. You must manually add the directory.

Both libraries and objects

When a symbolic link is included in the subclient content, the software displays the target of the symbolic link and the link.

For information on the SAVACT options, see the IBM manual. The Commvault software does not support the *SYSDFN option.

The backups include the libraries and objects that are included in the subclient content.

You can back up all IASP libraries by configuring a custom content path that is similar to “/<IASP_Name>/QSYS.LIB”.

You can back up any IASP directories by configuring a custom content path that is similar to “/<IASP_Name>/<Dir_Name>”.

When a symbolic link is included in the subclient content, the target of the symbolic link is displayed in addition to the link.

  • Delete

    You must enter the path in the UNIX format.

    Each directory  must be on a new line.
