How to Exclude a File Filter added by default by a Neverfail Plug-in

Follow

Summary

This Knowledgebase article contains a workaround that should be used to exclude default file filters added by Neverfail plug-ins in V5.3.0 and later.


More Information

Neverfail Heartbeat V5.3.0 through V5.3.3:

File filters added by default when a Neverfail plug-in is installed in V5.3.x, cannot be removed from the 'Inclusions' list in the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client.

To exclude an entire folder that is present in the default filter list, follow the procedure below:

To exclude a file filter such as <FilterPath>\**, the following file filters should be added to the 'Exclusions' list:

<FilterPath>\*
<FilterPath>\*\**

For example, D:\My Folder\** was added by the Neverfail for File Server Plug-in by default. To exclude this folder from the replication set, the following two file filters must be added to the 'Exclusions' list:

D:\My Folder\*
D:\My Folder\*\**

To exclude a specific file that is present in the default filter list, follow the procedure below:

To exclude a file filter such as <FilterPath>\<filename>.<ext>, the following file filters should be added:

Add Inclusion Filter <FilterPath>\<filename>.<ex*>
Add Exclusion Filter <FilterPath>\<filename>.<ext>

For example, C:\Protected\test1.txt was added by the Neverfail for File Server Plug-in by default. To exclude this file from the replication set, the following two file filters must be added:

Inclusion: C:\Protected\test1.tx*
Exclusion: C:\Protected\test1.txt

Neverfail Heartbeat V5.4.0 and Later

Starting with Neverfail Heartbeat V5.4.0, the capability to disable file filters created by Neverfail plug-ins was introduced. To disable the file filter:

  1. Launch the Neverfail Heartbeat Management Client.
  2. Click on the Data button.
  3. Select the 'Configuration' tab.
  4. Select the desired file filter.
  5. Click on the Edit button.
  6. Clear the 'Enabled' check box.
  7. Click on OK .

Note: If only a subset of the plug-in created file filter needs to be excluded and not the entire file filter, follow the procedure outlined above for V5.3.x.
