sucessful backups not protecting files The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process
The file system backups are showing as successful(no warning) however failing to protect some of the files; I am wondering why the job is not completing with partial sucess and showing it as a VSS issue. Is that becuase there are no application specific vss writers for the application and hence quiesing is not working its magic [C:\Program Files (x86)\BigFix Enterprise\BES Client\__BESData\SiteData.db] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
Error 91:32 When Trying to Restore a VM
Hello, this might not be enough info but I’m trying to restore a VM and keep getting this errorError Code: [91:32]Description: Unable to register virtual machine [SERVER]. Possible reason includes datastore was not mounted correctly.Source: CVMA01, Process: CVDLater these errors only occur: Error Code: [32:392]Description: Volume Operation in Progress : [One or more volumes are being processed by other operation. VolumeId ]Source: CVMA01, Process: CVDI have the job log files but can’t really make sense of it. Its pretty much nothing but errors and fails.
Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) Flaw
I started looking at the MFA on Command Centre and baffled as it is flawed. If my domain account has been compromised, I would be expecting the second factor to be the 2nd line of defence. But no, you can request a new pin that gets sent to your compromised domain account e-mail address. I then looked to see if I can amend my account by adding an external e-mail address, but LDAP pulls this from the domain and can not be edited. By editing the e-mail script we can omit the pin, but I think this hasn’t been thought through by Commvault, considering that backups are supposed to be the last line of defence against a cyber attack the two factor serves only to delay the time it takes for SMTP to deliver a new pin.
Backup Plans vs Storage Policies
Newbie Alert! Hello Everyone I am new to Commvault I took over an environment which has more than 200 storage policies. These policies were created as a result of plans created using command center. We have more than 2000 VMs and 200+ filesystem clients and Databases. I was wondering how should I approach the cleanup. Is it a good idea to use plans for larger environments, because as a result of single plan there are multiple configurations created automatically. Thank You
DB2 backup on AIX very slow
Working with DB2 on AIX for our SAP AFS Application. Approx. 4TB database split over 4 logical volumes in an IBM Virtual IO environment on IBM Power. This backup takes 20 to 26 hours. Below the statistics in db2diag after the backup. I’m not sure how to read this, but I think the WaitQ is quite high.Hope anyone can shed a light on this. 2021-03-13-01.02.01.804357+060 E411673A4491 LEVEL: InfoPID : 4718886 TID : 61753 PROC : db2sysc 0INSTANCE: db2prd NODE : 000 DB : PRDAPPHDL : 0-12866 APPID: *LOCAL.db2prd.210311220047AUTHID : DB2PRD HOSTNAME: lpdd001EDUID : 61753 EDUNAME: db2agent (PRD) 0FUNCTION: DB2 UDB, database utilities, sqluxLogDataStats, probe:395MESSAGE : Performance statisticsDATA #1 : String, 3994 bytesParallelism = 40Number of buffers = 40Buffer size = 2494464 (609 4kB pages)BM# Total I/O MsgQ WaitQ Buffers MBytes--- -------- -------- -------- -------- -------- --------000 93654.87 47851.71 43854.53 455.97 1032152 2450793001 93638.40 5314.21 28579.66 58494.24 309031 73353
If "Optimized For concurrent LAN backups" enabled on MA speed backup Oracle DB slowdown at 3 times
On CV 11.20.9 we backuped Oracle DB from SPARC Solaris to MA RedHar8.4.If we set “Optimized For concurrent LAN backups” on MA then speed = 1800 GB per hour, if we unset “Optimized For concurrent LAN backups”, then speed=5500 GB per hour.All other settings are identical.What changed in MA configuration when set “Optimized For concurrent LAN backups”?
Sharepoint backup is very slow
Some facts:Version 11.24.7Sharepoint 2016 (on-prem)SP DB backup speeds: 15-25 GB/hr (So not superfast, but atleast it finishes in a reasonable time)SP Documents backup speeds: 1-1.5 GB/hr (So basicly superslow) Some background information:I am a storage guy, who’s recently been put in charge of the backup solution, due to people leaving. While i’ve worked some with other backup solutions before, thats 10+ years ago, so my backup skills are a bit rusty compared to my storage skills, so bear with me if i need things spoon fed :-)Also, the Documents parts of sharepoint have been split up in about 10 different subclients, and this performance issue is affecting all of them.Also, for other backups being run by Commvault, i see very different backup speeds. For instance full backups of some MSSQL servers can provide speeds of 500-3000 GB/hr, so i know the backend of the backup solution can handle a lot higher speeds than what Sharepoint is giving us. Now, if i try to drill down a bit on one
Media agent Loopback latency
I am working on some performance issues with my backups.Looking at the media agents during the backups, looking a the media/proxy agents I am seeing what I think is high latency on the loopback adaptor. in the screen shot below you can see in in Windows resource monitor the latency for vsbkp, cvd and other processes are around 30ms. The loopback adaptor is internal to the server, never touching a ethernet switch or wire, so I would think it should be much lower right?I am wondering what type of latency other folks are seeing on their media agent and or proxy agents during backups?Thank you ahead of time!
Command Center Database backup daily full only
We want to create a Server Plan for databases that only runs a Full backup one a day.We cannot find a way to achieve that. When we configure an RPO, it automatically runs an incremental (which we don’t want), and under "Database options" we cannot find an option to completely disable transaction log backups.Am I overlooking something?How can we achieve only daily fulls through the Command Center?
Question on Scheduling Groups
So another question.Regarding scheduling backups. So our environment which is mostly windows servers and a few linux servers and 1 MsSQL. Is following an accurate assumption:If I want to create a new client group, example - “Windows Server Agents” and then associate all of our Windows servers to this group this approach seems much cleaner way to create bkup policy then creating a seperate backup schedule for each windows server individually. What is recommened? Also if I was to create this group client Windows server bkup schedule I notice it doesnt let me chosse what drives I want to backup and the system state option. I only see these options if I set up a backup schedule for an idividual client as there is a “content” tab where I can select aLL local drives or browse etc..and then there is also a check box for the “system State” Does the client group bkup schedule automatically bkup all local drives - C:\ drive and if there happens to be a D:\ it will back that up as well

Email Alert notifications for VM Backup Failure
Hi, We are running v11.22.13 and the alerts have changed behaviour from v11.20.x. We used to get an email formatted as html with the general job status and an attachment as text with the failed vm name and failure reason. This is no longer the case.Now we get an attachment in html form which is just a repeat (copy) of the main email. So not helpful. Also I would prefer the attachment be in plaintext not html.I’ve played around with a variety of alert settings such as sending as text instead of html / with or without “detail as attachment”. I have included the various “VM xxxx” tokens. Nothing has produced the list of failed vm’s. Is this working for anyone running the same version as I am?Cheers,Ron
Make backup/restore functions via WebUI user friendly for customers.
Hi, We are currently in the process of making the Commvault environment more usable for customers. The administration of the individual systems in Commvault is to be managed via Active Directory. We include the AD groups in Commvault and create in Client Computer Groups per AD group a group with the name of the AD group. All systems from the VSA data backup pools are linked into the group. The main portal for the clients will be the WebUI. Now I have linked a VM from the VSA subclient to the group of an AD for this project and it looks like it could work. But currently I can only restore the last backup of a VM. For backups a few days ago, the "Restore" button is grayed out.Has anyone here already made experiences or perhaps a better suggestion, how this could be better implemented?RegardsThomas
Trending 11.28 (CPR2022E) issues and fixes
Hey folks,As we see a steady stream of adoption for version 11.28 (also known as Commvault Platform Release 2022E), there are a few trending issues we have detected along the way for that we have fixes for. I wanted to summarize those here to make folks aware in case they encounter them post upgrade and to help get your CommCell performing as it should as fast as possible. Update 4/08 - Maintenance Release 11.28.14 resolves all the issues below. You can obtain the latest Maintenance Release here. Issue #1 - “The case of the Unresponsive Commcell Console” CommCell Console UI unresponsive after upgrading to Platform Release 2022E (11.28) or higher This one is caused by having custom shortcuts to the CommCell console. In 11.28 we are leveraging a new release of Java which requires extra parameters to be added to the shortcut. As customer shortcuts can be created outside of the default deployment, Commvault does not update those during upgrade which leads to the condition. Thankfully, the
Data in some directories are not displayed (VSA Backup)
Hi When I look at the VSA backup of a Linux system, I don't see any data in some directories, such as /dev. Is this a bug or do I need to adjust something on the fbr ? We used Commvault SP20 and the fbr was also updated to the version for SP20.RegardsThomas
