Hi, A customer has a CPU constraint server with PostgreSQL DB running. DB is approx. 96GB in size. Dumpbased backup took 5h30m which is a very long time to backup 96GB of data. Commvault by default is using pg_dump with -Fc parameter which compresses backup by default I’m not a DB admin but as far as I know postgreSQL compression is very resource intensive. Is there a way to run PostgreSQL dumpbased backup without pg_dump compression?
Hi all,our task is to implement Quantum ActiveVault feature in the Commvault environment. ActiveVault should create a special room (for the tapes) inside the tape library, that is not visible for any (backup) application. According to me, in CV we should adjust schedule policy or create VaultTracker policy, that moves full tapes to I/E (and then to defined export location). Once the tape is in the I/E slot, the quantum tape library can mark this tape as part of special room and the tape looks like it is outside from CV point of view. Then, once data are aged, an administrator has to manually move tapes to I/E by clicking in the GUI environment of the tape library. The thing is, how to find out, which tapes should be moved back to library since they are aged.I think, it is necessary to have Due back for reuse policy type, isnt it? So, firstly run a report to find tapes for return, secondly move manually tapes in management console of the library and lastly run VaultTracker policy? Am I
Hi Team,Greetings! instead of Connect-CVServer command from PowerShell to connect commserve. is there a another way where we can connect commvault using PowerShell without providing credentials. i want to connect to commserver from PowerShell with token or something ?
Hi, We are looking for a way to fetch from the Commserv - Jobs Copied By AuxCopy Job.Currently we use this API call - qoperation execscript -sn QS_JobsCopiedByAuxCopyJob,but the response we are getting includes details that are not aligned with what we see on the Console GUI. Jobs that are marked as ‘Copied’ on GUI doesn't show on the API response. Is there any other way to fetch that data and the get the latest status ? Thanks
Hi Team,I cannot understand what the scheduler task option is for:Run Incremental Backup - Before Synthetic Fullsince it later gives Failure Reason:Synthetic Full cannot run because no Incremental or Differential backup was run after last Full backup for the subclient.Can someone explain this? Regards,Piotr Grzegorek.
I configured a Global Command Center by registering the remote CommCells as outlined in https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/essential/151227_global_command_center.html. When you register the remote CommCell, it asks for the Service CommCell host name along with username and password. It then reaches out and synchronizes the service CommCells.For some reason, when I look at the CommCell names under Service CommCells, it is inconsistent. Some are showing a CommCell ID/Registration number while others have the full hostname and others have the short CommCell name.Where is it pulling that CommCell Name from? Can it be edited?It would be nice if you could edit the CommCell names on the Service CommCells page to input a friendly name so that the other admins would know which one it was. Perhaps that would be an enhancement? Right now under Actions I only see Refresh and Delete.

Recently upgraded the iDA on an HP-UX 11.23 server (from 10.something to 11.24.52). Server is running Informix 11.50Ever since updating the agent all my backups (filesystem & Informix) are failing. I see the following errors on both job types: Other end <media agent> encountered failure in receiving data [The SDT data transfer was terminated on a request from the Job Manager.]andDB Token [3184921:3:4] doesn't match with the token [3184921:3:3:0:52679] provided by client. Error :[The job token is for an older attempt than that of the job. I see the jobs starting to write data at the beginning, but then they just…. die. Doesn’t matter which media agent I use (we have 4 to pick from). We do have an active case open with support, but it’s moving….slowly...and not really progressing. we’ve configured a 1-way firewall (didn’t help) and tried not using a firewall at all (also didn’t help). The client and the media agents/commserve have DIPs on the same vlan. any ideas?
Hi,I want to set a storage policy (a plan actually) for Oracle backups. The only thing is customer wants to just provide storage target for RMAN backups but leave actual backup administration in hands of Oracle admins. Oracle team won’t have access to Commvault console, so they need to manage backups with the only tool they know and got which is RMAN. Everything is set, we got plan in place, activity on default and archivelog subclients is disabled, so Commvault won’t run any backups (a plan without scheduler would be nice!), we did some tests and backups work like a charm and the only missing part is data aging. For this setup to work nicely and to give Oracle team what’s theirs I also need to allow them to prune old backups using RMAN so I could set infinite retention on Commvault side (currently it’s 14 days). I’ve set DisableRMANPruning to 0 on Commserve computer and crossed my fingers but unfortunately it is not enough. After running a couple of backups using RMAN command line we
Good afternoon, please help, I am trying to connect the postgreSQL database but I get the following error (see image), my passwords are correct for the user "respaldo" but still the error. I have already added another server and it works perfectly.Thank you. Blessings.
Hi all, Our customer wants to perform a test Full System recovery of a physical Domain Controller in a fully isolated environment. We we are thinking about the following setup: Add an extra MediaAgent VM to the environment with a small local Disk Library (without Dedupe) AuxCopy the latest Full File System backup of the Domain Controller to that new MA/Disk Library Clone the CommServe VM and MediaAgent VM into the isolated environment Perform a Full System Recovery of the Domain Controller (onto a VM) Now, my main concern here is Indexing V2 which is used. With Indexing V1, the full Index for the backup job would be automatically copied together with the data. But with Indexing V2, the Index Database is backed-up separately and only the Transaction Logs for the Index of the backup job is backed-up/copied together with the data (if I understand correctly).Will we able to Browse and Recover the data without AuxCopying the entire Index Database backup to the temporary MA/Disk Library? The
Hi , currently i am involved in O365 POC for commvault complete software. I realize that even though our documentation mentions that is a search function for what kind of files within a 1 drive user to be restore but i cannot find the search bar within 1 drive restore function . However the same search bars exists for exchange online and sharepoint. Attached screenshots FYR . Any idea what can be the possible explanation?https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/essential/136001_restoring_file_of_onedrive_for_business_user_to_its_original_location_in_place.html search bar for exchange search bar for sharepointsearch bar missing for 1 drive
Hi,I see in the repository of running jobs there are files ending in data, meta and idx. What are these files for? Is it when data arrives at MediaAgent as chunk and when stored in block? Do you have a diagram to describe the process of moving these blocks of data, and how it is stored?Another question is can I copy the backup file to restore on another Commcell environment?Thanks
Hi guys,Based on the following link I can see that typically Autodiscovery for Exchange Mailbox User Mailbox Subclient runs once every 24 hours.https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/essential/94394_configurations_for_exchange_mailbox_user_mailbox_subclient.htmlIs any way to set an own time and frequency for autodiscovery, e.g. once a day at 5.00 AMRgds,Kamil
Hello all,we had to delete some mountpathes a few weeks ago without problems. Now we get some jobs “DeleteMountPathAuthorization”, but the pathes are deleted already. Is there a way to get rid of these jobs? After killing the jobs we get the jobs queued again after a while. Thank you.
Hello all, is it possible to backup locked files in OpenVMS? Backup is running, but some files failed. I found an old manual:You can instruct the backup procedure to save open files by using the /IGNORE=INTERLOCK qualifier on the BACKUP command. When you use the /IGNORE=INTERLOCK qualifier, the contents of the file at the moment of the backup are saved.The /IGNORE=INTERLOCK qualifier is useful for files that are constantly open (and would therefore not otherwise be saved). However, you must recognize that you might be saving inconsistent data, depending on the applications that are writing to the open files (for example, open application transactions or file data cached in memory). Also, because of the way BACKUP scans directories, any activity in a directory (such as creating or deleting files) can cause files to be excluded from the backup. In general, it is best to back up your system when a minimum number of files are open.Is there any additional setting to backup these files in Co
