Please check your DOMAIN statements! Be aware that only real mount points or those defined via VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT can be used in DOMAIN!

Are those items mentioned in DOMAIN real mount points (volumes)? If not, you’ll have to configure them via VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT. The format with “\*” at the end is wrong anyway.

Wool ,
            These are virtual volumes. Please can you help me with the configuration please?

Thanks a lot!!!

woolmilkporcCommented:
If they're virtual, where are the VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT directives? Or do you want me to help you with creating them?

Wool,
              This is a windows environment.

please help me to configure the dsm.opt  with the virtualmountpoint directives.

woolmilkporcCommented:
The format in dsm.opt (valid also for Windows iirc) should be:
VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT   F:\VWTNPROD  
VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT G:\PFILES
VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT G:\VWTNPROD\EXPORT
VIRTUALMOUNTPOINT G:\VWTNPROD\R MAN

The new mount points become part of ALL-LOCAL. Data inside thembacked up via higher levels (e. g. G:\) in the past will be expired once the new config becomes effective.

Wool,
             Should leave the: domain all-local  line before the virtualmountpoints? or should i erase it?
0
 
woolmilkporcCommented:
ALL-LOCAL will process all real as well as all virtual mount points. If you want to back up a more specific, self-configured set of data omit ALL-LOCAL and keep your DOMAIN statements.

Wool,
            Perfect, no all -local here. just domain. As usual, thanks a lot. You are a real Woolmilkporc ( capable of everything!)

cheers.
