Environment

Products
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)

Configuration Information
Open Enterprise Server is configured to use Dynamic Storage Technology(DST) on Novell Storage Services (NSS)

Situation

Symptoms
When specifying a directory to be excluded when using Dynamic Storage Technology (DST) scheduled operations, these directories are still migrated to the shadow volume.
Excluded directories specified in DST scheduled jobs are migrated to the shadow volume even if they are excluded.

Resolution

Workaround
Using the migrate inhibit attribute in Novell Storage Services we can prevent a directory from being migrated for example:
/opt/novell/nss/sbin/attrib -s=mi
