The skipaclupdatecheck option disables checksum and size comparisons of ACL data.
When set to yes (default is no), the backup-archive client will not perform checksum and size comparisons before or after backup and during incremental processing (ACL checksum from previous backup and current ACL) to detect ACL updates. However, current ACL data is backed up if the file is selected for backup due to other reasons. If only ACLs are updated on a file, the next incremental backup will not recognize this ACL update, and the file is not backed up.
This option is valid for all UNIX and Linux® clients.
Place this option in the client user options (dsm.opt) file.
- If you specify No, the client performs checksum and size comparisons of the ACL data, before and after backup and during incremental processing. This is the default.
- If you specify Yes, the client does not perform checksum and size comparisons of the ACL data.
