I’ve been looking for information on how to do this, and have come up empty.

It’s about 1000 lines every day.

/etc/periodic/security/100.chksetuid is the file that runs the check, but I am hesitant to edit the file.

I can disable the check entirely


But I only want to exclude /mnt/backup from the check. It appears the only thing I could do is exclude /usr/local/bin from my backups (which I can’t do as many of those executables are custom local binaries and scripts) or to edit the 100.chksetuid file and set $MP manually.

At 20:43 the dome of St. Elvis Cathedral shattered... and the Devil
walked the earth again. He'd never really left.
