Description Jim Wildman 2017-02-01 21:36:08 UTC
There is no documentation of the configuration options other than in the config directories.

in particular the option AUTOEXCLUDE_MULTIPATH which was suggested in a ticket to a customer is not documented in any Red Hat documentation.

I would like to have all the options fully documented.

Comment 2 Pavel Cahyna 2018-07-17 11:12:05 UTC
AUTOEXCLUDE_MULTIPATH is documented in the user guide, https://github.com/rear/rear/blob/master/doc/user-guide/06-layout-configuration.adoc
One problem is, the user guide is not included in the installed package. This is a problem with the Fedora package as well. I filed a pull request for Fedora, https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/rear/pull-request/1 and will look at getting it into the RHEL package.
