As more and more companies move their databases to cloud environments, we would like to learn more about how you create copies of your cloud database for purposes other than restore and disaster recovery, such as dev/test, reporting, analytics, etc.Your feedback will help our Product team improve our cloud database dev/test solution. If you are a backup or DB admin or devops engineer, please take 4-5 minutes to complete the brief survey here. Please submit responses by February 20, and feel free to share with your colleagues who have insights or feedback on the topic. As always, let us know here if you have any questions about the survey.
Dear Team,Good Day! I need to Encryption Algorithm from Blowfish to AES with 256 key on 600 clients, so is there any command line that I can execute to run on each storage policy, as changing through GUI, is time consuming. Thanks
Hi,Does anyone know if MySQL Block-Level Backup does work / should work / is supported with Ubuntu? It's not on the List of Supported Kernel Versions (https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/expert/19402_mysql_block_level_backup.html). But our (driverless) MySQL Block-Level backups on OS Ubuntu just work great. Restores do not (yet) work however.Because it's not on the List of Supported Kernel Versions, I hesitate to open a ticket with Commvault support, pretending I do not know Ubuntu is not on the List of Supported Kernel Versions. Maybe the List of Supported Kernel Versions has not been updated?Thanks!
Hello, We have an archive cluster(A300 PowerScale) being backed up via NDMP and full backups take quite some time to transfer which is expected due to the file count and size. We backup to disk and tape aux copy via 3-way NDMP. Synthetic full backups are not supported on NDMP, if we did a full every 7th day as we normally do for all our other backup clients(synth. full), this would make the backups fall behind. Dell states that “Forever Incremental” backups are integrated when backing up to Commvault. I am not too familiar with forever incremental configurations in terms of retention. What would be the retention required to be able to perform a full restore? I would assume we would need to keep the initial full backup forever.. https://infohub.delltechnologies.com/l/dell-powerscale-backup-using-commvault-1/incremental-forever-level-10-backups-2
Dear all,We perform the backup of all our MSSQL VMs by aggregating them in one sublient, scheduled by an ad-hoc policy. The daily incrementals are scheduled at 7pm with the following optionsNotwithstanding the attached configuration, the SQL Server Appaware daily backups are always full. I remember I read somewhere that this is expected, is this correct? The Data checkbox is unchecked and this somewhat surprising for me. Shouldn’t it be selected for the job to backup SQL data?Sorry if these questions sound a bit dummy but I inherited the management of the Commvault platform from a colleague and some choices from the past are still a bit unclear. Thank you in advanceGaetano
Hi Has any one seen ‘this’Part of the left column of Command Center is obscuredThe Left Column should be the name of the VMThere is no option to scroll left or right - and the left column is also obscured when the is set to Full Screen (F11)The Browser is edge - I’m unable to test with Firefox or Chrome at this stage
Hello,Is there any documentation available to integrate Bocada into Commvault. This product is used for monitoring.https://www.bocada.com/supported-applications/commvault-montoring-reporting/It looks like the requirement is for a read-only user directly in SQL and not via API authentication.Is creating an account within SQL allowed? Or is there an alternative method to achieve this? Thanks.Ignes
Hi,I am trying to delete a deconfigured client. I get the error “ Detected Media Agent platform. Delete Media Agent before cleaning up the client.”This client is not listed under Storage Resources → MediaAgents.No backup jobs exist for this client. Is there a way to forcefully remove the client? Cheers.
Hello!We are finally testing Indexing v2 for VMs and it seems like it is MUCH faster than V1. We are testing on our 800+ dev/test VMs and we have some random errors:Failure Reason: Mismatch detected in blocks being backed up for certain volumes or disks. The next incremental will resolve the situation automaticallySo yeah, I opened a new case with CV support but… it seems like they have no idea what should be done :)So, now the Support Engineer says that the problem is ...with the incremental backup before Synch Full. Interesting, but the last incremental is green. I am uploading more and more logs for investigation, and there is no answer [yet].So, I wanted to ask the community, probably somebody knows what could be the reason.BTW, using Indexing v1 with the same ESXi hosts, the same network etc we did not have issues like this.
Hi Team, May need you help to identify the error for the exchange index Solr server and may advise is there any fix for this instead creating new index server? actually i already create new index server with vesion 11.28. the old one from 11.13 and start have issue with 11.24. i know there is new index build server from version 11.22. just curios is there any way to fix the old index server? is this cause by the Third party software when we install Setup.exe.
Dear all,we have several VMs included in the same Appaware subclient. I created a new Appaware subclient, assigned a new schedule policy and moved one the above VMs to it. The storage policy remains the same for both the subclients and all the VMs have a recent Full available.The first backup job for the new subclient was set of type Incremental, may anybody help me understanding why it was converted to full? Thank youGaetano
Hello all. We have 6 Hs2300s and 1 RO1200, all the same supermicro servers underneath. We have 10Gb fibre cards in them. The Bios sees the cards, the OS sees them as physical interfaces, and we believe the SFPS, cabling and switch config is correct.However on both the Windows and the Linux it shows as network cable unplugged/no link detected, and the switch shows no presence on the line.We have a call raised with CV but has anyone else seen this? Is there some setting in the Bios we need to apply?
Hello,We are planning to migrate the commserve from win server 2012 OS server to new hardware win 2019. Also we are planing to upgrade Simpana, our Simpana is 11.20.Which upgrade method is suitable for us?Should I upgrade Simpana on the old server before migrating Commserve to the new server, or install Windows on the new server and upgrade there?Thank you!Best regards,Elizabeta
Hello everyone,We are trying to configure backup for Linux PCS cluster, We have installed agent on nodes and configured cluster psuedo client for cluster IP. Cluster psudo client is configured but its not able to find the active physical node. even if we force sync its completing but still active physical node is not updated.I dont have knowledge on how PCS cluster works but our linux admin says in os both nodes will be inactive but PCS cluster manages both nodes and handles the clustering
Hi Team, Is there a way to let know if ransomware protection option changes on media agent ? Commvault alarm, snmp, rest api, ansible etc. I saw that there are configuration change alarm for Media Agent, but we want to focus only “Ransomware Protection” option.
Hi, Trying to find the best way to set up at Selective Copy in a Plan to be able to send One-Time, Client Specific, Full backups to Tape for external audits. In a Storage Policy this is easy as we can select what Client, or even SubClient, to copy data for. This option is not available in a Plan though, it’s only which Fulls to Copy for all associated Clients.I can create a separate Plan for this and redirect a Full Backup to this Plan but that would mean a new Full backup and these jobs can be up to 30TB which is not ideal to stream directly to Tape in this environment. We want to benefit from Synthetic Fulls from the Primary Disk Copy. Can I create this Selective Copy from the CommCell Console under the Storage Policy section for the Plan or is that not supported/recommended? Or will Client Selective be available in Plans in a short future?Regards,Patrik

Retiring Server, what is the recommended method to stop backing up, while retaining data through the storage policy period and aging data off?
As title implies, I am retiring a VM Server. Currently, this server gets backed up daily, and it kept on local disk storage for a period of 1 month. What is the correct prescribed method using the command center GUI to “stop” the daily backups, and then just have the data age off for the next month until there is no data left and I can delete the VM from the VM group backup. Do I simply change the “plan” the vm is affiliated with to “none”?
