Command Center and single-server Exchange clients
Hi! Are there any plans to support single-server Exchange clients in Command Center?We are trying to switch from Java GUI to CC with new customers, but there is always something missing… Btw, how do you guys handle situations like this? Switching between consoles can be very confusing, especially for new users.Thanks.

And this is commvault support
And this is commvault support...premier support contract, 1 hour response time for critical tickets.Ticket opened at 10:25AM: Then it’s 11:25AM UTC, and ...tada…they just change the time , without contacting customer: occur on or by Apr 22, 2021 2:36 PM (UTC)Then it’s 11h38, and ...tada...another hour added.. Seems Commvault has flexible hours on their clocks.
15 minutes backup frequncy
we have a potential customer who use a snapshot backup product to take 15 minutes backup; it is a sector based product which has a filter driver installed on the sevrer; withCommvault file system agent we only do backups once a day; is it possible to use the file agent to do a 15 minute backup; any potential issues. Or should we be using the snapshot backup(VSS; disk sectors) rather than the traditional file system Commvault backups where it reads all the files
Firewall Direction and Index Server Hardening
Hi There.I have a customer that wants ALL communication within Commvault Components to be secured.I know that the WebConsole and the WebServer can be forced to use HTTPS but in that particular Mail Archiving Project we have an Index Server.As per BoL the Web Servers must reach the Index server on port 20000 (default) in HTTP. Customer is requesting this to also be a secured connection (HTTPS). Any Clues?In addition to the above, he is requesting directionality of Firewall ports. they do not want to open bi-directional if it is not required so what is the direction that need to be enabled on FW for:WebConsole and WebServer Users and WebConsole (HTTPS 443) WebConsole and CommServe WebServer and CommServe WebServer and Index Server CommServe/Media Agents to ClientsIf someone has any document/link or clues on the above it will be greatly appreciated.Thanks and regardsAbdellatif
Archiving with Symantec EndPoint Protection 14 Installed
Hi All,I have somewhat discussed this topic in the below post that has not clearly answered / resolved my issue.https://community.commvault.com/technical-q-a-2/stubb-recall-not-working-183 When disabling SEP completely the recalls work successfully.By configuring and adding all process and folders to the AV exclusion list does not resolve the problem. The only method that allows for stub recalls to work successfully is by configuring the AV On-Access scanner to not scan for Read operations in the folder where the stub is located. Can someone please assist in clarifying exactly what processes are involved with the recall of files? I can see cvd.exe, cvods.exe and clmgrs.exe popping up from a Commvault point of view. Could there be any native Windows process involved in this process that might have a read operation during the recall process? Maybe the the filter drivers that need to be added to the exclusions as well? I have added several processes to the cvmhsm registry key as ExcludedP

Why does the WMI service hang?
I also see same issue in my environment frequently where backups on multiple servers hang randomly. And then we see commands like ‘tasklist” timing out on the client which confirms WMI is not responding.We have to reboot every week or so to fix.Does anyone know why WMI hangs? Unfortunately we don’t have Microsoft support so have not been able to take up this issue with them.
generating reports/files with extension .hdr 0kb
Hi,We just updated our environment to 11.23.3 and now the reports scheduled in the adminconsole fail.If we look in the folder we see all reports ending <report_name>.pdf.hdr or <report_name>.html.hdr and they are all 0kb If we run reports from the Console GUi reports are generated fine.We are still investigating, we think connection issue on port 80, but does some knows where the extention .hdr comes from?krDanny
Importing existing SnapMirror Relationship
I have existing SnapMirror relationships which I created from the NetApp CLI. I am trying to create an auxiliary copy which will not create new relationships, and will not force a re-baselining of my data. I want to import the existing relationships. Some years ago I used the OC6ImportExisting Relationships key on the Media Agents to accomplish this. It has been a while and my most recent attempt has not been successful.
Error 19:757 is there a way NOT to show subclients with disabled activity in the history?
Hi, for some backup clients subclient activity is turned off for various reasons. After updating from 11.18 to FR 22 those jobs will be shown in the Job History as Failed Job. But it was no failure, is was a decision made by the administrator. Is there a way to suppress the display of those jobs? I did not find anything in the manual.Regards Martin
Client backs up after rebooting each week
I have a client that for some reason I have to ask for it to be rebooted every week or so, we have already uninstalled and reinstalled the Commvault file agent software twice.I can browse to the contents of the client, the cvping comes back clean from the media agent to the client.My question is: has anyone else seen this problem.. the server is a Windows 2012 R2 Standard
Invalid Data on Media - Copy Status Not Available
In the above screenshot, it shows that some backup are Invalid and the the copy status is unavailable and it sets the retention date for 3 months later. I believe there may be a setting somewhere to change that retention date but I do not know where.Also, is there a way that if the copy save on the media agent that returns to be invalid/not available to be retried and remove the failed one? If I look for the dedicated job on the storage policy, its all green so I can’t change it there.Thanks all.
SQL AG backup target (Secondary)
Hi allI have very large SQL DB on a client site. Due to it’s size the client is also a Media Agent that backs itself up and then replicates a second copy of the backup data to the secondary SQL node in the AG.What we’d like to do is use the Secondary node to backup the SQL AG DB from itself which would allow the primary node to not be accessed.From what I can see this is not possible. You can only run a backup copy/TLogs on the Secondary node. I just want to confirm there is no way to satisfy this client request?
HANA database activity on tenant - db level
Hi,Another question: We have HANA instances, with couple of tenants(dbs) in there.So : HANA instance1 => TenantDB1 => TenantDB2If we want to disable the HANA backups (backup activity), we can disable it on the HANA instance1. So far so good.But that option doesn’t exist on tenant/db level:Is there a way to also have the same functionality on HANA tenant/db level?
Intellisnap: Report for orphaned NetApp snapshots?
Hello,i need a report or script that generates a list of orphaned snapshots of the NetApp volume.The report/script should query in the Commvault database the snapshots for a volume and the real snapshots on the NetApp volume. Both must be compared and all extra snapshots on the NetApp volume (Commvault knows nothing about) should be reported.Has someone here something like that? Or a hint how this can be done?Because of a database problem Commvault don’t delete the snapshots before a specific date. For volumes with a simple retention this is easy to do manual, but for the volumes with a advanced retention for monthly etc. snapshots it is complex when doing this manual, where will a report very helpful.Kind regardsStefan
