       nsr_directive - NetWorker resource type ``NSR directive''

       type: NSR directive

       Each NSR directive is described by a single resource of type NSR direc‐
       tive (see nsr_resource(5)).  To edit the NSR directive resources for  a
       NetWorker server, use nsradmin(8) or NetWorker Management Console.  See
       the corresponding manual page for more information on the use of	 these
       NetWorker administration programs.

       These  resources	 are  used  by the NetWorker ASM (Application Specific
       Module) family of commands  when	 processing  files;  see  uasm(8)  and
       nsr(5).	Directives can be used to improve the efficiency of backups by
       controlling which files get saved and specifying	 special  handling  on
       certain types of files.

       The  following  attributes are defined for resource type NSR directive.
       The information in parentheses describes how the attribute  values  are
       accessed.  Create-only indicates that the value cannot be changed after
       the resource has been created.	Read/write  means  the	value  can  be
       updated	by authorized administrators.  Hidden means it is an attribute
       of interest only to programs or experts, and these attributes can  only
       be  seen	 when  the hidden option is turned on in nsradmin(8).  Dynamic
       attributes  have	 values	 which	change	rapidly.   Several  additional
       attributes such as, administrator, are common to all resources, and are
       described in nsr_resource(5).

       name	      (create-only)
	      The names of directive resources are displayed as	 choices  when
	      creating	 or   updating	 NetWorker   client   resources,   see
	      nsr_client(5).  The name can generally be chosen at the adminis‐
	      trator's	convenience,  but it must be unique for this NetWorker
	      server.  The directive resource named `Unix standard directives'
	      may be modified, but it may not be deleted. Other directives can
	      only be deleted if no clients or archive lists are using them.
	      Example: name: Unix standard directives;

       comment	      (read/write)
	      This attribute is provided for the  administrator	 to  keep  any
	      explanatory  remarks  or	supplementary  information  about  the

       directive      (read/write)
	      This attribute contains the rules defining the  directive.   The
	      value  of	 this  attribute  is similar to the contents of a .nsr
	      file except that absolute path names must be specified for  each
	      <<  path	>>  directive.	See nsr(5) for more information on the
	      format of NetWorker directives.
	      Example: directive: "<< / >> skip : core";

       NetWorker comes with four directive resources  already  defined:	 "Unix
       standard directives", "Unix with compression directives", "DOS standard
       directives", and "NetWare standard  directives".	  The  first  two  are
       meant  for  use	with clients running on UNIX platforms.	 "DOS standard
       directives" is intended for use with clients on machines	 running  DOS.
       The  last  directive,  "NetWare	standard directives", is meant for use
       with clients running on NetWare platforms.  There may also be two other
       directives  "Default"  and  "Default  with compression".	 These are old
       names for "Unix standard directives" and "Unix with compression	direc‐
       tives",	respectively.	NetWorker  will remove the directive resources
       using the old names when they are no longer being used.

       An example NSR directive resource, named `Unix directive', follows:
	      type: NSR directive;
	      name: Unix directive;
	 directive: "
		     << / >>
			  +skip : core
			  skip : tmp
		     << /usr/spool/mail >>
			  mailasm : *
		     << /nsr >>
