I am a huge fan of Activate. Many of nights were spent downing coffee whilst traveling down the massive rabbit-hole that is Activate. It does a few things very well. It does simple jobs horribly. So, who uses it? I do. In addition, I would love to hear about it if you used it as well. Most of the time that I get to one on one with other vaulters it is a topic quickly ignored. I even had one person say “What’s that?” yea- it is that product that no one really knows what to do with it. Kind of like Threatwise… What happened to that by the way?But .. you need it? Yep. I mean there are items such as Stealthbits or Varonis that do it , kind of. So why not keep one pane of glass and just use activate? Well… it’s kind of not easy . Or intuitive. In addition, no one can help you. “Well, just use the Documentation” -- You use it. It is never what is needed. Typically the steps before or after what you need are there. Never the actual steps. So I have built some seriously amazing reports within
Hello Community!Is there any way to run a restore of an Exchange online mailbox from its original A tenant → to B tenant ?I run a lab with 2 Exchange online configurations, but when try to restore a user I see only members of its tenant.If there is any way, may be a good way to migrate Exchange online mailboxes cross tenant in case of Company acquisition or subsidiary.Thank you in advance,Nikos
Hello Commvault Community,Looking at this thread, I understand that IndexServer copies for V2 indexing are not recommended to be copied to tape media.However, what if we have situations where there are certain jobs on the tape that are the only last ones left and block the possibility of recycling this tape media? I checked for this StoragePolicy and these tasks are on both DiskLibrary and TapeLibrary (we care about disposal of these tapes, where the last blocking task is the BigDataApps task). Can we safely delete them, being sure that it will not affect the ability to restore the data? I've also seen entries to do Media Refresh for tapes that also have this problem, but then what? What is the most sensible way out of this situation, right after disabling IndexServer backups to tapes (if I understand correctly, it is recommended to disable it, right?) I have attached some screenshots to help you understand the situation. Thanks for help,Kamil
Hi all, The command center only allows a few languages, which can be annoying for some users.Isn’t commvault considering allowing customers to create/add own language files, so that also the community can work on translations?This way customers can add translations based on translations from the community, with no addtional effort from Commvault. Just an idea / question :)

Hi!In my lab I’m trying to add a Yubikey compatible key as 2FA for a user. For this reason I’ve created a dedicated group, put a user in it and in Manage → Commcell, enabled 2FA for created group. Now I am trying to add a key for a user but this won’t work. I go to a user details, click add security key,answer Yes when prompted and it fails there. This happens even before I’m asked to put anything into my USB port.Is there anything I’m missing here?I’ve tested this on 11.25.14 and 11.26.3 and results are the same.Any suggestions would be appreciated. Regards,Robert
Considering that 1-touch backup and backup networks are pretty common things, I’m surprised at the issue I’m having trying to do a 1-touch recovery over a backup network.Whether I’m using a ReaR based recovery or the 1-touch ISO, the restore client that fires up doesn’t seem to get the backup network configuration and the restore is attempted over the primary interfaces. The restore client tries to talk to the MA over DNS IP and vice versa. Considering we have backup networks, that data path is firewalled.I’ve managed to make it work, but it is a PITA as I have to add to the hosts file of the client the name of every MA and the matching backup interface IP, and I have to add the restore client backup IP and hostname to the /etc/hosts of every MA.So how do others do 1-touch recovery and backup networks? I can’t be the first person to have encountered this.
Hello Commvault Community, I come to you today for asking if it is possible to protect a virtual machine with VSA, where there are both encrypted and non-encrypted partitions. In the case of non-encrypted partitions, there is no problem, it is correctly recognized and protected by the data protection task. However, in the case of encrypted partitions, there is no information about them in the logs, as if he did not see them. (screen01.png) Is this expected behavior, or could there be a problem on our side somewhere? Thanks&Regards,Kamil
Hello Experts, Firstly, please accept my apologies for my lengthy post. I need your assistance with a problem we're having while performing granular data recovery of VM data from Azure Library. We have VSA backups with extended retention in an Azure cloud library (hot+Archive tier) that are shared by two Windows media agents. Attempting to recover data from a File Server instance.This file server has multiple virtual drives (vollumes), with three drives (C: E: H: each drive less than 1 TB) on one datastore and two more on another datastore (S: V: - with S: volume of 10 TB and V: volume of 5 TB). This VM/Subclient is backed up with intellisnap, and the backup is then copied to Azure.When attempting to browse through the "Files and Folders" option from the Azure backup, the VSA subclient fails with the error " Browse failed due to error while mounting virtual machine."I have already completed a recall index and Recall Archive storage workflow with success. I thought the pseudomount was
Holly crap! That is a big step! Really curious why you are still running on SP9/FR9. This version is unsupported so upgrades from this version are not part of the validation and regression tests, so I would indeed take a careful approach and first see if you can create a test environment to see if the upgrade will succeed.
Greetings,We have migrated our user base over to utilizing the Command Center for performing restore tasks. As this is the case we are looking for a way to redirect the URL for the web console to the admin console. Thus far we have only been able to find ways to restrict access to the web console but not to redirect access. I have reviewed the documentation but have not had any luck in locating anything that will do what we need to do. Has anyone accomplished this in your own environment, if so how did you go about this. Thanks,-CEH
Hi All, short question. We are using VSA for hyper-v in some jobs some vms are reporting failed to create production checkpoint but the hole job is shown as completed without errors. is there an way to change that ? We would like to see this jobs as completed with errors in the jobsum report and not as completed. thanks

hi, Someone knows in which logfile the start of atuomatic schedules is being logged? I mean: we have machines with automatic schedules active (every X minutes, but also based on size), but the automatic schedule isn’t working anymore [was working before]. I wonder in what logfile that should be logged?
Hi everyone,We are looking to refresh our primary storage, moving on from a Nimble SF100. As I start to evaluate the two I was hoping I might gain some insight here. Looking for best all around performance with emphasis on restore. Anyone have anything to say good or bad about either? Anyone evaluated a comparison of the two? Our frontend storage is a Pure Flash array. The Flashblade doesn't offer fiber channel, which is what we use for connectivity today.Our Oracle DBA is taking about issues backing up the larger DBs. I see there is a white paper for rapid backup and restore with Pure FA frontend, Pure FlashBlade backup library and intillesnap. We might have to explore that as her consultants are saying commvault can’t pull off the protection much longer as the dbs grow. They are currently just using the client side agent for backup. Thanks for your time!
I have a question about “quick look”.Two different users perform the same operation and click the "Quick Look" button in Outlook without the add-in and the effect is that one user generates such a link and it works (the message from the archive is fine).and another user generates such a link (which does not work)I don't quite understand why these two users have different link syntax. What can it depend on?SP 24.25
