Multi Factor Authentication Commvault
Hello Commvault Community! I would like to ask you about the topic of Multi-factor authentication Commvault. First Question: Is it possible in MFA to block the sending of e-mails with one-time codes, apart from sending the first e-mail with the code to the authentication application? I guess the solution to the problem should be to disable MFA for specific users, but then that user won't be protected anymore, right? In the case of MFA, it is not possible to send the authentication code once, and then it would not be needed again to log in correctly, I think right?https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/7910_disabling_two_factor_authentication_administrator.html Second Question: The client has two accounts in Active Directory:- One - regular user, with a mailbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) - logging in via MFA works fine- The second - which has administrator permissions (also in Commvault) - this account hasn’t mailbox (however, it has the email address email@example.com).
Problem with data pruning after seal DDB
Hello Guys, I need yor help.The Customer has sealed a DDB.However, they ignored the following warning:There was not enough free space on DL.As a result Disk Library is out space of now and the Customer has disabled schedules to not run any backup.As a troubleshooting step we tried to delete some jobs assigned to sealed DDB.AS you can see, there are over 20,000 jobs assigned to this DDB.We deleted over 12,000 jobs.Hovewer, Commvault is still showing the same number of jobs and no data has been pruned from DL.Is any way to force Commvault to free some disk space removing data assigned to sealed DDB?Rgds,Kamil
BIG FILES TABLE SPACE
Hi All A question arose from my client, who backed Oracle Big tablespace.Is there a need for special adjustments when backing up BIG FILES TABLESPACE compared to regular TABLE SPACES when backing up directly ( not from local RMAN script) from Commvault By adjustments, I mean a change in the settings at the SUB CLIENT level or the backup command level sent to RMAN by Commvault

Client group definition
Hey all, is there an option / regkey which prevent that an client will added to an group even the group settings would add the client to the group because the filter are matching ? The backround is we have groups with network settings. The group rules add the client to the group and push the netwoprk settings works as designed. But we need to exclude this particular client because we dont want that the client gets any networc settings pushed. So do you know if there is any high level setting for the client which prevent from adding to groups ? or can i remove the settings in the FwConfig + FWConfigLocal locally on the client persistent ? thanks
Lack of a complete repository on Maintenance Releases
Log4j showed me a huge flaw in they way Commvault pushes information related to Maintenance Releases (MRs). Problem one is the software reading a list, allowing different installations to fetch different MRs as their ‘latest’ MR. I’ve got a colleague currently being offered 11.24.34 for example. Problem two is ma.commvault.com not showing all releases or reasons why one got pulled. Documentation’s repo (https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/138863_list_of_maintenance_releases_for_feature_release_1124.html) isn’t complete either.I had 11.24.31 offered at one point (through the software). This version was pulled, and only through support did I get to know the reason: the Server Event Manager crashing occasionally. This is a problem, because only 11.24.30 and later should include log4j 2.17, per its release notes: https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/assets/service_pack/updates/11_24_31.htm. And I’ve now got two customers that have this problem, but at least they’re safe f
PostgreSQL index files restore
Hi allI am running a PostgreSQL restore and the DBA has mentioned that the index files haven’t restored on this particular restore process. I’m doing a table level restore to another DB instance (out of place).He mentioned a restore that was completed in December had the index files restored. I’m a bit at a loss as there is no option to allow this from what I can see. I also followed the identical restoration process as was done in December so I’m a little stumped.Not sure if there is a simple solution to this? I am happy to log a support ticket bu thought I’d ask here first.Thanks in advance.Mauro
Commvault Security > Domain and organization > deleting an existing Name Server entry
While trying to delete a domain entry (name server entry) under domain and organization in security, commvault shows a confirmation dialog box “This operation permanently deletes all clients and their associated data for the selected Name Server. Are you sure you want to delete the selected Name Server ?” what does this really imply?The validation check kept failing with verification error stating either credentials are wrong or the provider couldn’t be contacted for verification, hence we created a new entry for the same domain and validation check is successful on that.I want to get rid of the old entry for which the validation is failing. Is it safe to delete the old domain entry (name server)
All linux servers fail to quiesce when backing up since upgrade from 11.20 to 11.24
Hi there, Since we upgraded to 11.24 from 11.20 I’ve noticed all our linux servers fail to have quiesced backups (windows servers are fine). We use openvmtools on the linux servers so I’m surmising that commvault thinks vmware tools isn't installed on the linux servers and performs a non quiesced backup? Manually taking a quiesced snapshot in Vmware for any of these servers works fine. I’m wondering is this normal behaviour? Cheers!Maurice
HyperScale Reference Architecture 1.5 and X
Hi All,Two years before we implemented the Commvault HyperScale 1.5 Refernce Architecture on top of HPE 4200 Hardware. Our CS running on VM with 11.19 and MA configured in HyperScale 6 Node with RHEL 7.7 I am planing to upgrade the OS and CV version. When I browse the documentation page, I came across one more product terminaloy HyperScale X.I couldn’t figureout following factors, and looking a advice who is working in similar setup.What is techinical difference between Hyperscale refernce architecture X and 1.5? Any use cases where I need a situation to move from 1.5 to X? Can I upgrade HyperScale 1.5 to X in the same Hardware without distrub data? Can you upgrade the OS and CV version in the same 1.5 without jumping into X ?Your assistance would be appriciated. Thanks,Mani
Long time retained backups - exclude
Hi Is it possible to exclude files from a long time retained backup.We have one plan which is retained forever. But there was not specified any filters on the servers when they started to build up retention.So now if I exclude areas on the different servers, then this data will be excluded on new backup jobs. But we will have a lot of data saved which can not be removed?
CommCell User password encryption algorithm
Dear experts,Currently, we are testing to pass certification exams run by government agencies.Among the test items, there is an item related to password encryption of CommCell User.The document web confirmed that SHA 256 was used.(https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp16/article?p=7964.htm)Is there a way to check what hash algorithm is used to store the password?And can I change it to use a stronger hash algorithm like SHA384 or SHA512?Or can I use the Adding Salt to Hashing method?Best RegardsKim KK
