Is duduplicated data associated with a backupset?
I’m wanting to manually “clone” subclients from 1 backupset to another (on a different client). I’m wondering if this will affect the data on storage. I’m planning on making all the new subclient settings as identical as I can to the old ones (using same storage policies, backing up the same data, subclient name is the same, etc).Basically: I don’t want to blow up all my remaining DDB or storage space by having commvault think “this is new data” at the DDB or storage level, as its “the same data” just now being backed up from a different client. Or, I guess, blowing something else up like index cache space.

Best approach to backup big windows file servers
Hello, I was wondering what would be the best option or settings to backup windows file servers. I see that block-level is an option, with a few restrictions.I also see that, creating multiple subclients for the folders under the file server drive could speed up the process. Is that is? Any other thoughts?Thanks

Media Agent time change
Hi All,What happens if a bad person becomes an admin on the CommServe server and change the server date forward 2 years? We can consider this for Media Agent as well.In general, a bad person could log into the servers and do this and what would happen ? Will the backups be deleted because the retention period has expired ?
Commvault LiveSync split brain over network failure?
What are the implications of running LiveSync across 2 sites each with a CommServe and automatic failover set to occur? In the case of a Primary CommServe failure I see no issue and expect the monitoring nodes (both sites) to trigger transfer of the primary function to the CommServe at the other site.However… What if site A becomes isolated from site B with a network failure between both sites? I expect the Primary Commserve continue to run its site but will the CommServe in site B become active at site B as well with the monitoring nodes there losing connection with the CommsServe at site A? Will this result in a “Split Brain” condition across both sites??? If so, what happens on network reconnection???
"Migrating" a large filesystem subclient to another new client.
Background: I have a few Windows clients that are performing a lot of backups via subclients. Most of these are UNC paths, and some that are pointing to large file shares (some are 10-50 TB each). We need to “migrate” from the clients being on 2012 Windows OS to 2019 Windows OS, and “just upgrading the OS” isn’t an option we have to stand up new 2019 servers and retire the old 2012 ones. The storage policies for these subclients are tied to DDB’s for primary copies, and secondary/aux copies.For each subclient on the old clients we want to retire: I want to just “deschedule” the old subclient, then make a brand new “identical” one with the same name and “path its backing up” on the new client (with all the same storage policies, filters, etc.). Maybe take advantage of any “new” default settings on the subclient. I will run a synthetic full at some point on this to make the last backup a ‘full’ to clean up storage.I have read up a little on NDMP and other types of backups for these (
Auxiliary Copy Fallen Behind Alert Backup Copy Stopped Working
Hello, we have a 3 part storage policy that snaps, copys to vault then once a month a backup copy runs. The backup copy has stopped working now for the past 3 months. The jobs are stuck on “To be Copied”. When I manually run a backup copy, it tells me no data needs to be copied. The jobs in the primary and vault work fine. The tape drive has available tapes. I dont see any obvious error or connection issue. Do you know which log in the Send Logs zip I can look at to help troubleshoot this issue?

How to configure OneDrive backups to automatically pick up all users
Hello everyone,I’ve created a new OneDrive backup using the Command Center and have been manually adding users for the past few weeks. I’d like to configure it to back up all users automatically but the documentation doesn’t match the user interface.For example these directions don’t match what I see in portal.azure.com:https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/essential/150329_adding_onedrive_license_enabled_users_using_microsoft_dynamics_azure_ad_group.htmlAnd these directions don’t match the Command Center interface:https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/essential/135989_adding_all_users_to_onedrive_for_business_app.htmlI opened ticket 230605-558 and suggested maybe I could have an online session since the documentation is incorrect but was told that’s not an option and that I’d have to engage professional services. Does anyone have some recommendations on how to get this set up?Ken

Slow Synthetic fulls and best practice or places to learn
Hello Everyone,Currently our Synthetic Fulls that do our weekend backups are taking way to long and putting our system at risk. They run well into Wednesday and they kick off on a Friday Night. I have seen other posts about simultaneous Synthetics slowing down the system and we do have them running against one business server, however the way they were setup before my time each job is doing different sections of that drive. I am trying to determine how to alleviate this issue. Would SSD drives for our Media Agent help, we currently still have old mechanical drives installed. Do we need to throw more processing power at the Server itself? We are trying to roll into Metallic to replace tapes and at the speed the backups happen even if we can get our system to send to Metallic instead of tapes it will be so many days behind if we do have an issue we are pretty much dead in the water. We are not a huge company, and I feel like a Synthetic is only supposed to write the new updated st
