Hey folks,Hope everyone is having an amazing day!I was hoping you could help us out by letting us know what your preferred backup window is, as well as your patch window / schedule. We’re working on something internally and some quick validation from the community would be really helpful.I created a quick 6 question survey, and all responses are completely anonymous.https://forms.office.com/r/NkFPDf1M0k
Noob alert! Hi everyone, I fear our DR damaged or our "Storage policies\CommServeDR" Policy is misconfigured, because since a month, the DDB Verification Job are constantly failing. Short resume/background: 1)We store our Backups and DR in a Network-Storage. Our Commvault Version is 11.25.28. 2)I tried backing up and restoring files, and it works. I did test DR restore (In March) using this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H4w2CYdf4c).3)As always users can still run backups, restore data, etc. but we get lots DDB-Verification failures and DR "Completes" but with errors.4)In Commcell, if you try to browse to our Network DR folder(Commcell\Control Panel\Maintenance\DR Backup\"Back up Metadata to this folder"), we get the following message "incorrect password or unknown username to selected access path" I checked the credentials and also check if server can reach the Path. Pass, User and Path are fine but still the message persist. Errors from DR jobs:CommServeDR: Destination Direc
Hi Team, i got several Servers which have the Filesystem & SQL Agent installed. I grouped them based on agent to a SQL group. Now i wanted to give the SQL Admins the permission to backup & restore SQL instances. Unfortunately the grouping of “Client Computer Groups” with SQL Agent counts for the Whole “Client” so when i add the SQL Admins as Backup / Restore user on that group they can also restore / backup on the Filesystem Agent ( as the Client is added not only the SQL Agent ) so is there a way to just allow the SQL agent and exclude the other Agents with an automatic association? ( the only way i found is manually just give the right on each Client Agent itself…. )
Hello Guys, I need space in my Commvault environment, so can i remove job that expired(Retain Unitl) ?I thing this job was supposed to have been removed and i can reclaim space.Another thing:There are backup jobs in a Three different locals, 2 in File library and one in tape library.Another question: Can i remove the backup job to the Files libraries?
Hello, We have a problem with CommServe.We have 2 physical servers.We’ve 3 instances on each server:Instance 001 - CSInstance 002 - CS_failoverInstance 003 - MAOn Windows is configured Windows Faiover Cluster (for GRID, for MediaAgents) When Windows is member on Windows Faiover Cluster, Commserve Communication will be not established (failed to communicate with Instance 002, 003 on the same server and second server).Telnet is OK, but chceck readiness and for example Transaction Logs not working. Nextly, when I restart the server, communication will be OK. But when I restart Instance001 on Process Manager, the problem will reappears. When we delete Windows from Windows Faiover Cluster, CS looks OK.Do You know any resolutions? Is this Configuration supported? Best RegardsKarol
The parameter used for the current operation is not supported by the Operating System, OS Drivers or the underlying Hardware
long story short story we observe error “The parameter used for the current operation is not supported by the Operating System, OS Drivers or the underlying Hardware” in our environment It started few months ago and from this time it is more and more extensive. It already “survived” few MR updates First thought that is connected with some backup types but it already spread to ddb backup or index backup ...also exist in FS backup or vmware backup ...Often see tat also inside AUX copies or in livesync replication Second thought that mine MA’s OS is guilty so we changed many MA’s from 2012r2 to 2016 or even 2019 ….not help ….also play with many options from OS which not help also Next thought went to base where we store backups which s CIFS shares on Synology (especially that no so long ago we changed OS on them to DSM7 (from previous DSM6) . Here we also checked many things as for example blocking to use SMB3 and use only SMB2 ….no helped ...strange is fact that we have many diffrent
I'll briefly explain my problem:Our customers use a Huawei cloud platform with the production site in Milan, while the DR site is always done for the cloud in Bologna.Now a commvault platform is installed in production for backups with release 11.20, while on the DR site I have not installed commvault services.My question is simple, in case of loss of the production site is it possible to manually restore the commvault services on the DR site?ThksDario
Is anyone using NetApp for CommVault disk library, we just replaced the HP MSA2050 with NetApp FAS2720, this is 72 SATA 14.5 disk enclosure. The write performance is great but read is supper slow. The Aux copy is very slow for SQL DB backup and Exchange. I run Validate Storage on 1 path, all backup and aux was disabled, that is the max read of 31 MB/Sec
Hello Community,I keep on wondering about one thing. There’s a feature called Ransomware Protection which is allowing MediaAgents to protect Libraries and Mount Paths. In terms of local storage there’s kind of lock being provided. What if there’s cloud storage in place e.g. Azure or GCP connected to MediaAgent? There’s still some kind of lock in place which is preventing objects from being modified by non-commvault tasks?
Hi guys, do you know how to fix this thing? I want to delete snapshots manually from array management and get this error...Error Code: [19:2018]Description: Workflow [Snap-UserOperations] completed with one or more errors.Source: xxx, Process: WorkflowNo Host found with HostId . Failed snap volumes will be handled later by the automatic clean up process.Source: xxxx, Process: WorkflowI ran the data aging (i think this the forementioned ‘automatic clean up process’) - nothing changed...
I have a storage policy for MS SQL backups. The retention is 21 days, but the transaction log backups do not expire after 21 days. I run the Data Retention Forecast report and it shows those log backups are not expiring because of SQL LOG RULE. I’ve read the documentation and none of it seems to apply. I have other storage policies for SQL and this isn’t an issue. This is the only storage policy with this behavior. Anyone have any ideas of what to check?
I need to limit bandwidth usage to 50% during 8am-5PM for AUX copies. What is the best way to accomplish this? I am planning to select the source media agent and the destination media agents under the properties of the source media agent. Then I will configure the rules to only use 50% usage during 8am-5PM. What all does this impact? The destination media agents are used for multiple other copies coming from different media agents and I do not want them to be limited. Really just looking for confirmation that if I setup the throttling on the source media agent and select the destination media agents in addition to the source that it will only impact the AUX Copy between these source and destination and will not throttle any backups running to the source media agent or any other media agents writing to the destination media agents.
Good day I have a bit of a strange one. I use the Activity Report to generate the Monthly Executive Summary Report on backup stats.There are two days of no information being reported, even though jobs ran over these two days.What are possible reasons for the Metrics server not reporting on two days even though there were successful backups?Thanks so much.
Hi,I am trying to duplicate Oracle DB from production to test server, but when I pick all the options and go to script preview I get this: I don’t really understand what is the problem, I’ve checked my oracle instance configuration in Commvault and either ORACLE USER in general tab or connect string in details tab fields are set on both the source database (target instance) and target database (auxilary instance).

We have the requirement in our company that all Mgmt interfaces/IP’s must be protected by a firewall. For HSX this includes the IP where sshd, http Admin GUI is running. But this seems not to be possible in our setup.We can not protect the DP network with firewall as there will also be backup traffic. So we decided to used 2 different VLAN’s on one of the two LACP channels.Overall we have 3 VLANs/networks configured on 2 LACP channels. 2 VLANs are configured on a trunk.Storage-Pool: not routed - no problem - on LACP 1 with 2 x 25G Data-Protection: should be used for communication with other Commvault servers and clients to back up - on LACP 2 with 2 x 25G Mgmt: used for sshd / http - on LACP 2 with 2 x 25G But according to documentation for Reference Architecture only one network can be routable. In our case both Mgmt and DP must be routable. I added some Linux policy routing rules and they worked perfectly fine until the GUI installer was started (via browser after basic network confi
HelloWe have just gone into production with Commvault and are starting to look in more detail at the various reports available. I’ve created a couple and so has a colleague but we are wondering how we can share these and/or simply make them available to the team. I cannot seem to export my reports (to XML) in the Java console and also there does not appear to be a corresponding “My Reports” in the web console. Thanks in advance.
We’re a Service Provider and want to automate reoccurring tasks using Python, so we can integrate these in our business processes. (examples: creating new schedule policy, creating new storage pool, create scheduled report)As I’m new to Python it would be really handy to have some way of converting a Commvault action to a finished Python script/command, similar to how you can see certain API equivalents or save certain actions as a script from within the Java Console.Is that possible or some other way to get the Python command equivalent without having to manually put it together?I’m aware of the info on the documentation online and GitHub, but it would be great to have more examples than the ones on the documentation site so they can be used as a guideline for non-Python pros. For example for each option a quick example, as it is done with the qcommands.
