Setup Remote Software Configuration
Hello,I have a Commvault backup server CommServe version 11.20.0. I have downloaded a month ago latest maintenane release but not start install this.At the moment I have a problem with low disk space on Commserve and I plan to setup Remote SoftwareCache to another server ...I would like to know if this is a good procedure https://documentation.commvault.com/11.23/expert/2728_setting_up_remote_cache_on_client_computer.htmlAfter that i thought to run the download of the last current maintenance release and install it.Just one question, First I install the update on Commserve?Is this procedure correct Should I run Update Software or Upgrade Software?Then I install update on media agents and clients…Should I run this:Thank you!Best regards,Elizabeta

Permanently remove data from backup
I need the ability to permanently delete emails from an Exchange backup. Beyond removing indexes and making it unavailable for recovery, I need for the data to be completely wiped whether by overwriting the emails in question with zeroes or rewriting the backup image so the data in question is no longer present in the backup file.According to the docs - https://documentation.commvault.com/11.23/essential/110998_deleting_mailbox_items_folders_or_messages.html and https://documentation.commvault.com/11.23/essential/104288_deleting_mail_messages_in_exchange_mailbox.htmlIf a message is deleted from mailbox it cannot be recovered. But it doesn’t explicitly say how that is done and I suspect the data will still be present in the backup file itself.Is it possible to do what I am looking for?Thanks
Migrate files between os type (Linux & Windows)
I’am migration a server from Windows to Linux, and have a lot of files that needs to be moved. And will use the live sync replication for this.https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/92967_configuring_replication_for_file_system_agents_01.html Each time we try to replicate a file dir from Windows to Linux, all the files is getting skipped.I can’t find any documentation that this feature is not supported? can anyone confirm/deny this?If I do it the other way, from Linux to Windows, it works fine.

Automatic schedule log file
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?
Uninstall Software jobs being automatically submitted by System
Good Day,As part of a support ticket I’m working on, we have to upgrade our environment from SP20 to SP24. I had some issues going directly to SP24, but was able to get there by going to SP22, then SP23, and now we’re at 11.24.7.The issue is that I’ve noticed these Uninstall Software jobs are being automatically created and removing software from our Edge laptop clients. I’ve looked at the logs for the job but I don’t see a reason for this or what criteria it’s using to select clients.Has anyone else seen this or can help troubleshoot? I’ve updated the support ticket I have open but the engineer isn’t in the office today and won’t be back until Monday.Thanks for any support.@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@Machine : commserveFile : JobManager.log@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@11060 35cc 11/26 09:52:59 1595162 Servant [---- SYSTEM INITIATED AUTOMATIC UNINSTALL CLIENT REQUEST ----]
Migration from VMFS to vVols
We are migrating VMware VMs to a new NetApp storage array via Storage vMotion. In our current environment we use VMFS datastores. It is our intention to create vVol datastores on the new NetApp storage and migrate from VMFS to vVols. Is there anything we need to know or be aware of as it relates to our Commvault backups? Is there anything we need to change in our Commvault environment or change in our approach to performing Commvault backups? Thank you!

Is there a list of the meaning of commcell console client icons?
Hi,I’m looking for a document explaining the meaning of Commcell client icons since I’m installing the FileSystem agent as restore-only in two clients in my infrastructure and one of them appears in the list with a penguin icon greyed out with a green arrow pointing downward in the top left corner of the icon, while the other only with the penguin icon greyed out.I was guessing what was the difference between them and if there was a list explaining the icons in commcell console.Thanks!
