change in logging to syslog
Hello community, for the AIX client, after adding it to the Network-Topoogy (one-way) in /var/adm/messages, the event logging frequency increased significantly: syslog: /usr/sbin/ifconfig -a this information appears seven times per minute in the system log of /var/adm/messages. I'm sure it's the backup client's fault, because the problem started exactly when I modified the connection via Network-Topology. Also when I turn off the backup client the logging stops.I'm asking for help - because so frequent logging of insignificant events fadingly darkens the view of the log and the system log is also growing fast. best regardsDorota
Library configuration on MediaAgents
Hello, Please, could you help me with the following question:When adding a tape library to a set of non-clustered MediaAgents, I add the whole library to all of them and they decide which drive they are using, so there is never a conflict between mediaagents and drive utilization.When adding disk libraries (SAN FC) to a set of MediaAgents, I add one disk library per MediaAgent because Mediaagents cannot manage the possible conflicts that could happen if they tried to access the same volume at a time (non-clustered MediaAgents). How does it work for NAS and cloud (s3) libraries?For NAS, should I add one share per MediaAgent? or just one share for all MediaAgents? For S3, should I add one bucket per MediaAgent? or just one bucket for all MediaAgents? Thanks.Sergio

Best Practices of MS SQL Database
Dear Members,What will be the best practice to create DB policies and schedules for MS SQL Backups. As per our standard policy Primary Copy 7 days retention period, AUX copy to DR 8 weeks and then tape backups for 1 year and 10 years. So how should we create schedules for Daily DB backups, Transaction logs backups every 4 hours. Should we keep separate storage policies for DB and logs backups or they can be on the same.Any addiditional information will be highly appreciated. Regards,AQ

Hello Commvault Community, Today I would like to ask you if Commvault has integration with the Autodesk BIM 360 platform?I searched the available Commvault documentation but found nothing. My guess is it's not supported yet.So, is there a workaround for this solution to be usable in a Commvault environment? Thanks & Regards,Kamil

anyone notice increase in cluster failover time after installing the commvault agent?
We’ve a couple of windows sql clusters (2012/2019) and noticed that failover time increases from a few seconds (max 10-15) to at least a minute once the commvault cluster agent is added to the cluster.I’ve opened a case on this but would like to hear if anyone else out here has experienced this… best regardsMirco
Hey champs, Any one have any experience of priority between Network Gateways? There should be a setting priority=1 in FwConfig.txtWould that work well to set in VSA servers in a VMware cluster to spans over 2 datacenters to prioritize the traffic to the closest Network Gateway where all backup infrastructure is behind those proxies? RegardsDaniel
Decreased Throughput with Qumulo
Recently we added Qumulo to our environment and are backing it up. What I have observed is that since then the throughput on all jobs have significantly decreased. (not sure if related, but who knows) We are working with Support, but I wanted to see if anyone else may have ran into this issue with Qumulo. Job ID 752435 (incremental backup) took over 11 hours to back up 154.41 GB. Job ID 752486 (full backup) took 7 hours 13 minutes to back up 12.81 TB.The above jobs do not make sense to me considering their difference is size and the amount of time to back up. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you Community!

auto assign various tape media into Media Groups by barcode patterns
HiIs it possible to auto assign media to specific (spare) Media Group pools base on barcode numbering Even if ‘auto assignment’ is not possible, then when manually discovering media (eg for a single piece of unassigned/free media), can the ‘system’ not auto recognise the destination scratch pool base on barcode ranges(Barcode ranges and patterns have been setup under media management)
server requirements for commserve, with a lot of Deconfigured clients.
HI, i was looking at the commserve hardware requirements. You can have a combination of servers, virtual machines, and laptops in a single CommCell environment. The total workload must equal the maximum number of servers, per CommCell environment type (Extra Large, Large, Medium, or Small). The workload equivalent for each entity is as follows:Server: 1 Virtual Machine: 0.5 Laptops: 0.2now i fully understand the above calculation of the environment size.however, what if a Commcell has let say 500 deconfigured clients.would these need to be calculated? if so, are they full “servers” or do they count for less then this.as technically they are not active but still in the Commserves DB. thanks in advance, kind Regards, Thos Gieskes.
