Is it possible to add tags like “SAP for Oracle” (which isn’t using the normal oracle rman interface, but brtools).

Consider it done!

This platform looks good, but is there going to be a way to archive the old forums so they are searchable? There is a wealth of knowledge there.

Hey Michael,

The old platform makes this very difficult to do and we didn't want to delay launching the new community while we figured it out. There was also a lot of outdated content, and without proper classification (like we have tags here), we didn't want to bring in the good with the bad. Instead, we looked at the most popular topics and added them here in the run-up to launch. We think we captured a lot of the most pertinent topics, but anything missing should be regenerated here pretty quickly given the easier and faster experience. Appreciate the feedback, it's still something we will evaluate as a few folks enjoyed the content on the old forums.


To be honest, it shows a lot nerve to completely wipe the efforts of those made an effort to help to the that community for years. :rage::rage::rage:

Totally understand, so we are going to leave them around in an archived state.  Once this is done, I’ll get a post up.  Appreciate you and everyone else letting us know how valuable you find the content.  Wouldn’t want to deprive you guys of something you love!

 

@Mike Struening  Yeah, it would be nice if it was publicly archived because it was used as was also linked in the Maintenance Advantage search.

Good news to everyone asking, we are planning to archive the old forums and leave them up for reading.  Once that is ready, we’ll make a nice sticky post so everyone can easily find the old stuff.

Thanks for the feedback @Damian Andre  the old content was good (even if searching via google was the best way to find things).  Saved me a support ticket or two over the years!

Right off the bat I see a lot of the CV staff (I assume) participating here. I take this as a positive move as the old forum seemed a little abandoned even by the CV employees. 

Absolutely.  Vaulters from every department have been contributing!  You should see a little Commvault symbol in any employees avatar/icon, too!

The new community site looks great, looking forward to seeing more content!

Agreed!  I’ve probably said this before, but it bears repeating: this already feels like a real community, not just a forum to post questions.  We’re barely scratching the surface of what we have at our disposal for you to see!

This platform it seems more powerful and easily to use than the old one, you guys rocked in that, :wink:

We’re definitely excited about it, too!  Not only is content creation much smoother and more useful, but the Moderation tools allow us to quickly see what is being posted and respond as needed!

What’s the difference between this, and the other support forum?

This platform is also MUCH more robust.  Searching is much better (and populating your search automatically, even when starting new threads is amazing), gamification is more engaging, and there are all sorts of cool modules we plan to introduce in the coming months.  Our new community has a lot more of what you’d expect from a modern platform.

Hey Bart,

The old forums will be retired …. any minute now ;)

 

I hope the data will be transferred/migrated as there is a lot of information there.
