Snapshot Job - Server Objects
The Server Objects panel lets you identify live server objects that form the basis of a snapshot. The Server Objects panel is only available when you are basing a snapshot on live server objects.
To define a Snapshot Job based on server objects, you must first select a server and then select one or more server objects on that server. Following that, you can refine those selections using includes or excludes and snapshot options.
- Server objects — Specifies the server objects to be snapshot. For more information, see Selecting server objects.
- Includes and excludes — Specifies server objects to include or exclude from a snapshot. For example, you might want to exclude all log files or backup files in a directory. For more information, see Specifying includes and excludes for snapshots.
- Snapshot/Audit options — Specifies information associated with server objects that should be compared during a snapshot. For more information, see Specifying snapshot options for a server object.
When choosing the object or component that you want to snapshot, take into account the size of the object and focus on the minimum object scope. For example, do not choose an entire file system, as the typical size of a file system can cause the Snapshot Job to fail.
The object that you specify (for example, a directory path) is limited to a maximum of 2000 characters.
