Great product which I’m currently testing for suitability for a live deployment.
I’m backing up a bunch of Linux servers from a central server hosted on Ubuntu. At first I played around with client config on individual clients, and quickly established that I will need to exclude symlinks, and backup those destinations directly - otherwise the same share will end up being backed up multiple times.
When configuring the client directly, it was very clear that I needed to specify the no-follow-symlinks argument in order to be able to backup the root the entire drive, without the backup following symlinks, however I’ve now migrated over to a centralised server config instead because less administration, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to specify the argument in a way that works under the Client Configuration settings, whatever I try, it either gets interpreted as a backup directory itself, a note, or it completely mauls the backup config altogether…
Does anyone know how to prevent following symlinks using the server configuration, so it can be pushed to all clients?
Thanks in advance!
