Selecting multiple NetWare paths...

Post by mcgyver » February 14th, 2012, 3:27 pm

...is apparently not possible in the GUI. This is an evaluation of Sesam 4.0.3.30 running on SLES11. Browsing through the remote filesystems works fine, but as soon as you try to check a second path the new selection does't get ADDED but rather REPLACES the previous selection. This seems to be a GUI issue only as you can easily use the source editor box to add multiple path selections which in turn will be backed up properly.
There are no issues in the restore selection. There's an older thread here which describes exactly this problem, but unfortunately the resolution provided is totally unrelated (i.e. solves another problem).
Is this a known defect? Or maybe a defect in my brain? Or in a Java engine?

Yes, you are right. It's not possible at the moment.
Workaround is, write the source folder manually in the field (VOL1:user,VOL1:data...) or select the complete volume and exclude (deselect) folders (use "browse" button and click).

Thanks.
Is there a defect logged for this issue? Doesn't make it easier to present it as a new product to a customer :-)

Yes, the issue is well known and the development have fixed the issue, but it takes some time (testing, QS..).

Great. If it's a matter of weeks (opposed to months) they'll accept it.
Thanks,
