Fresh Imaging Hyperscale X Reference Architecture 3 Nodes
Hello, i have a project that a client will deploy HSX RA on Hpe proLient DL360 in the environment. i have never implemented HSX Before.and i have checked the documentation for the RA installation and network configuration. https://documentation.commvault.com/v11/essential/154258_setting_up_installation_media_for_hyperscale_x_reference_architecture.htmlmy question is is there’s a guild explains step by step the installation starting from configuring the servers, and the HSX imaging ?my blind step is how the image will be installed?dhcp is not enabled.documentation says that u’ll use a windows machine that can connect to the nodes and download the iso from the store then mount the image and start the installation.1 - do i need to mount the iso on each node from the ILO ?2- how the nodes can communicate during the installation as when you start configuring the first node it searchs for the other nodes.
I want to configure Daily and monthy backup for File server
Hi Team,I have a question.We have one file server and the server size around 25 TB. We have created 2 backup set for daily and monthly. Because the adhoc monthly full backup takes around 25 days to complete so we want incre data on the time so created another backup set called Adhoc_daily and run daily on different storage policy. Both are running to Tape library directly. But the incre backup cycle considering old full for reference. So it there any other way to reconfigure this backup.
how works pre/post snap tasks on vmware sublcient backup and how tracks it
Is there a way to launch a task from the media agent to the remote host that I want to take as a vmware backup.I have a Windows media agent like "access node" for Vmware backupsI did a task with putty which does a stop/start of a service on a remote linux host with authentication by ssh key. it works fine from a session on the windows media agent host.I put the path of this task in the pre snap and post snap of the Vmware sub client with the same user/password that I used for the test.When backing up the subclient, nothing happens and I don't see any presnap/postsnap call or task name specified in the backup job logs.1-) is this supposed to work?2-) if so how can I follow the operation?
Issues with Oracle Backup and restore from S3 Compatible Cloud Storage
We are testing Commvault data backup and restore to S3 Compatible Storage. For Oracle, archive log backup is successful whereas restore fails, and in the case of Oracle default sub-client both backup and restore fail. For the restore operation of the archive log:We were unable to find the below-mentioned data files backed up in our object storage even after a successful backup, and we could notice that the GET requests are failing 302 and 303 errors.

Migration of existing media agents to existing -- different-- commserve
Fun times ahead- I am over having multiple commcells per enviroment. It served its purpose but now with consolidations complete- I am ready to bring everything into a single commcell. So - I have read and used migrating media agent to new hardware documentation many times. Same with commcells-- but now… I am wanting to move the media agent- with all the jobs and clients-- to a new commcell. Would a seperation be the best approach? Is this possible? I am sure the instance has something to do with it -but looking for good examples. Anyone else done this? Thoughts on what you would do different? Lets talk!
MediaAgent / Network Proxy Question
Hello, im looking to deploy gateway proxies in order to isolate customer tenants from the mediaagent network. my question is, do the clients need to initiate connections from their end trough the proxy in any way oris a backup job always iniated from commserv / mediaagent server?Reasoning behind that, is that i could deploy the proxy with NAT without allowing any inbound traffic from the tenants network. i guess for registering client, the client need to iniate the connection, but afterwards?
How to add new tape drive to existing Tape Library
Hello, What is the correct procedure to add a new tape drive to an existing shared tape library? If I go to the expert storage wizard and hit either detect or exhaustive detection, the new drive is configured as a new library. Never under the existing library.Note that this is SAN library, partitioned, and in the same partition we added the new drive. Regards,Pedro
Testing HW Object Lock on CEPH with enabled Commvault WORM
As a kind of Ransomware protection test we wanted to see how Commvault backup behaves when someone deletes the bucket content through a backdoor using a S3 browser for example. As the content of the locked bucket is physically still there (just not visible through a delete marker), CV should be able to restore them somehow. CV is also set up as WORM with the right WORM workflow of course.But after deleting the bucket content incl. the commvault backup tree, the CV cloud library goes offline as loosing the mount-path. Question: what would be the right procedure to re-enable commvault to restore the content?

Linux agent firewall / SE Linux config?
The Windows client installation creates OS firewalls rules for the client to run and allow communication on ports used by the Commvault services. Does the Linux client installation make any FW changes to Firewalld or to SE Linux to allow the services to run and communicate externally? Are these required manually after installation?

HyperScale on Dell servers

They received a notification from Dell to update the firmware of the SSD Drive containing the DDB and Index Cache due to a security vulnerability.If we bring down Commvault, and Hedvig using the usual procedure as documented on BOL, are there any risks on doing such upgrade and is there anything else I should do prior to the upgrade? https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-pa/000134013/dell-poweredge-update-the-firmware-of-single-system-components-remotely-using-the-idrac Thanks very much in advance.
