Veeam Exclusions not working?

Post by pidthepiper » Aug 31, 2017 12:28 pm

Hi Guys,

So I have a job that is based off a vCenter folder, that folder has multiple sub folders such as Temp/No Backup/Test

I have added these sub folders to the exclusion list....but Veeam is still backing The VMs that are part of these sub folders?

What am I missing? Do I have to add those VMs specifically to the excluded list and not just the sub folders they reside in?

Veeam v9.5.0.1038

Hi Bilal, such configuration should work, VMs from the subfolder should be excluded. I recommend contacting support for a quick review of your setup. Thanks.

Yep

Support engineer removed the exclusions and then added them again, and they worked as they were supposed to.

No idea what the issue was...as it looks exactly the same

Could be some database glitch, thanks for getting back to report the results.
