Azure Data box disk for copy data.
Hello, Today we would like to order some external device from Azure to copy the data between Azure and local site. Azure provide two options: -Azure Data Box Disk-Azure Data Box. According to documentation Commvault support the second option, link to documentation: https://documentation.commvault.com/v11/expert/97276_migrating_data_to_microsoft_azure_using_azure_data_box.htmlbut how does it look for the first option. We have network connection built on 1 Gb/s which should be so slow to send 30 TB of data. So maybe better option is Azure Data Box disk which can be connected by USB slot. Regards, Michal
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?
SQL Server Windows authentication mode
Hi Community,I have a question about the CommServ SQL server DB connections . When the SQL server authentication mode is modified from mixed-mode to Windows authentication mode, i can read the following in the below article :“Note: When you upgrade the Commvault software to a new version or a new service pack, you must change all Commvault services to use a domain system administrative account.”Windows Authentication for Commvault SQL Server Connectionsit means that if SQL are configured in Windows authentication mode, after an upgrade Commvault will automatically reset the SQL server authentication to mixed-mode ?regards,Christophe
File System Subclient File Scan take longer
Hi Team,I have this Scan phase issue where the scan took longer for one particular subclient (NFS volume) after Synthetic full job. Is there any setting / need add any additional setting to make this scan phase finish faster? From the logs and behavior, I can see the mounting not happen and the scan result from the logs is 0. after many hours, it will act to mount the snap and scan the folders. what may cause this issue?I only can suspect the subclient as the other subclient working as normal. The CIFS subclient for this same SVM have no issue.
MySQL standby instance(s)
Hi all Have another DB related question.Customer has 3 node MySQL clusters but it seems you can only select one instance for backups. They need to add all standby nodes to be usable for backups. Aside from clustering the OS’s, is there another way this can be achieved? Thanks all.
Windows Firewall Rules v Network Topologies
I’ve spent most of today trying to work out why aux copies to a new media agent keep failing connecting to the SIDB on the destination MA.It looks like it is Windows Firewall related as the moment I turn that off things work.On the new MA which is Windows 2022 it looks like Commvault has only put in 2 firewall rules very similar to the ones in this post.On the existing Windows MA’s I have lots of automatically added exceptions for tons of individual Commvault processes.My MAs and Commcell are all in the same VLAN so other than Windows Firewall on each host there is no firewalling between them.I’m struggling to find the documentation on what should be in Windows Firewall and I keep coming across “Network Topologies” but the documentation that isn’t exactly clear either about what they actually do in this situation and whether I should need them.Also the new MA doesn’t appear to be in any of the smart groups with the CommCell and/or other MAs.Should I be looking at Network Topologies or

back up mailboxes from a different domain using the existing Exchange Online pseudo-client.
Hello Community,The question is about how to back up mailboxes from a different domain using the existing Exchange Online pseudo-client.According to the CV mailbox discovery log, the process begins:#1 the process begins by contacting the Azure AD connection details. #2 Then, CV identifies the AD cloud region and determines that we are using Exchange Online with an on-premises AD, which is the environment type defined in Commcell. #3 The local system account is used for LDAP to discover users from the on-premises AD.Based on the CV mailbox discovery/backup process, it seems possible to configure the new domain in the existing Exchange Online pseudo-client. if so, can you please check see if the following steps works:#1 Create a separate Exchange Online service account with exch admin role for the new domain and add it to Commcell Exch online config and Create a new local system account which used to connect to the new domain if it resides on-premises AD - the new service account is als
Manually deleting old files from S3. DDB and Barcode Question.
Greetings,I have a single s3 bucket that has held all of our Aux copy backups for many years, and it looks like it goes back to 2017. This bucket gigantic sitting at about 1.5PB and there are hundreds or millions of files in it. I inherited this setup when I came on board a bit back so I don’t know much about the history of it. I do know that a couple years back Commvault was rebuilt/recreated and everything was setup new. Our current storage policies have a year retention going out to this s3 bucket, and I see it in Commvault for the jobs that they do get aged off after a year. This does go through a DDB, and I ended up sealing it a few weeks ago, and at the same time cleaned up (aged/space reclamation) as much as I could in order to shrink down our bucket. It dropped the bucket size very slightly when I did this. I was hoping for a lot more. That started to make me think that there is a discrepancy from what the bucket has to was Commvault believes it has. I think there is a lot more
Full Backup capacity ?
Hi I have a customer who has multiple sites and now we are looking to replicate those site to the cloud and need to evaluate the bandwidths for each site !Is there a way to generate a report for each site telling us what is the equivalent of a full backup for those sites? I have the Total Application Size and Total Data Size on Disks but I cannot really rely on this since some have 15 days retention and others have 60 days retention ! Is there a report or a way to find this kind of information ?

Hi All, We have configured extended retention for the Aux copy at policy level for the oracle CLI backup.But it looks like the Aux copy is only retaining based on the basic retention. How do we setup extended retention for the Aux copy for the CLI backups? Thanks.
1-Touch Recovery and Cisco UCS c240 M3s/M4s VIC drivers
Greetings! So we’re needing to boot the 1-touch ISO such that it sees a Cisco VIC using Fiber. I’ve injected the network drivers for Server 2016/19/22 into the boot.wim of a 11.24 WinPE 5.1 1-Touch recovery image, but no avail - the fiber nics aren’t seen. I’ll move to the Win10 disk and try that - but has anyone else had any luck seeing the VICs in Cisco UCS? Best wishes! Mike
