How to resolve the issue of directories only being backed up through an NFS while all files are ignored.
Backups of multiple directories containing more than 20000 > 30000 files only backup up the directories and not the files. No error message is generated.
A backup of 1 directory with 20000 > 30000 files in it backs up correctly.
The selection set concerned had been made before the upgrade to Netvault V8 upd2 and backups worked as expected.
The directories are part of a NFS mount
Example of from binary log of two directories backed up with 30000+ files in each:
