Enhance NFS Backup experience

Brief description:

This request is to enhance the NFS backup capabilities mainly limited by the MFC GUI and FSBRDA on Linux and UNIX clients. Today each NFS mount point must be added using Manual Add in Backup Object Summary. It is not possible to browse the NFS mount point and the MFC GUI will report a error when the datalist is checked at a later point in time.


It must be possible to add NFS mount points on a Linux/UNIX clients similar to a local file system OR similar to Network Share Nackups for Windows clients. Furthermore it must be possible to browse the NFS mounts and deselect elements that should not be backed up (excludes).


Existing Enhancement Requests:

QCCR2A39869 / GUI reports NFS manual adds in backup jobs as orphaned objects
QXCR1000317548 / To browse individual directories for NFS mountpoint in DP


Allow to easily add, remove and maintain backups of NFS mounts on Linux and UNIX clients. Allow the user to browse and exclude structures inside the NFS mounts according to their needs.

Customers who are coming from Netbackup are confused by lacking such a basic capability.
In large environments with many administrative users we need a clean and usable configuration.
Orphaned objects ever lead to misunderstandings and errors.
