Upgrade from version 11.20 to 11.26 (Latest release)
Hi,We are planning to upgrade our commvault software version 11.20.46 to the latest 11.26.x (If still supported). Below are our inquiry. If our active Capacity license can cover to perform or assist us on the upgrade by the help of CV Support team? Under Commcell Environment Upgrades documentation, we can see a lot of information's about the upgrade and procedures. Being new to this backup software this cause confusion. Is there a way to provide a specific upgrade procedure base from our current setup/environment including compute requirements? (see our current Commcell environment below) Other component that need to upgrade and procedure as wellOur Commcell Environment:Commvault software version 11.20.46 Target version is 11.20.26 we have a CVFailover in our CommCell environment. Mixed hypervisor VMware, RHOSP, RHV to backup virtual machine Backup of Client application Oracle, Oracle RAC, MSSQL, MySQL, Kubernetes Let me know if I missed some info that is important to the upgrade.

Two sites, two Media Agents, two DDBs, each site secondaries to the other, wildly different space usage
So we have two sites… one media agent at each site. Each site has a Primary backup to that sites’ MA with a secondary going to the other site. It’s been this way for years. In THEORY, with each site writing to itself and copying to the other, using dedupe/compression… one might think both sides would look roughly the same - as it’s the same “stuff”. However, one site is ~290TB while the other is 440TB and growing. I’ve talked to support to find out if there was a way to reconcile this difference and, while they were extremely helpful, it seems that life’s answer is “with dedupe and compression, you’re not guaranteed the same size when these things are involved. You’re just going to have to purchase more space at the larger site”. Don’t get me wrong - we’re backing up more than a petabyte of data on each site, but it seems like one’s just far less efficient than the other. Has anyone else faced this situation, and how did you deal with it?
Changing storage policy for a subclient
Hello,I have a simple question. Is it safe to change storage policy for a subclient? Is there any data loss posibility? Do remain old data in the old storage policy?I am asking because I need to temporarily change disk library to tape library and because data are not synchronized it is not possible to promote secondary copy to primary.
Installation of Hyper-V cluster in commvault. Agent Virtual server installed on the commserver and on the 2 hosts of the hyper-v system.The client in commvault has been created with the name of the cluster and with the 2 hosts as nodes of the virutal server Hyper-VNow the problem is that I see only the first host in the browse of the subclient. And all the VMs of this host. Can you assist me? If I select only the second host as node, I can see all VMs from this host, so I presume that’s not a permissions issue.
Question on Exchange DAG Configuration
Is there a way to configure the DAG client to authenticate to a specific AD server.We have an environment where there is are 2 domains for Exchange literally with the same name.One is production and another is non-production. I need to configure the DAG but I am getting discovery failed everytime I run a discovery. Which I suspect is trying to authenticate thru the production AD environment.Any suggestions will be helpful..

Commvault client computers and group
Hey guys,There’s something I can’t really understand about the way ‘Client Computers’ and ‘Client Computer Groups’ are working.Am I not supposed to see all of my clients under ‘Client Computers’ when adding a new one?Why is it that some clients are only under one of the ‘Client Computer Groups’ and some are only under ‘Client Computers’ and even some are under both?Thanks alot!
Additional supported parameters for SAP HANA PARAM file
We are currently implementing SAP HANA Integration backups with Commvault. We have a sub-client each configured for SYSTEMDB and TENANTDB.When backups are triggered via Commvault schedules, the default sub-client for each are used, which then use the correct media agent that have been configured on the sub-client (Righ-click on the sub-client → Properties → Storage Device → Data Paths → Check “Override Data Paths” → Check the required Media Agent).However, we have LOG and CAT backups for HANA triggered by HANA itself and not from Commvault. This causes such backups to not use the default sub-client and are visible as “Logcommand Line” as the sub-client instead of “default”: This causes such jobs to use any media server which is configured for sharing data paths on the Storage policy.How can we force such backups to also use the default sub-client ?I was thinking if there could be a CV parameter that can be set on the “param” file (/opt/commvault/iDataAgent/jobResults/SapHana/<SID>
FR25 could not create O365 plan (missing from Command Center)
Hello all,I’m stuck since a few days, I’m trying to setup O365 backup with only the Command Center for demo purpose with the FR25, and even though I’m following the related doc (https://documentation.commvault.com/11.25/essential/130384_create_office_365_plan_for_exchange_online.html) I never get the option to add an O365 plan in the menu as described.I pass and repass the requirement, but I’m stuck Could you give me some hints ? Thx
Hardware refresh - Split CommCell and media agent?
Hello, we’re currently due for a hardware refresh for our CommCell and media agents. Currently, we have an ‘all-in-one’ setup with CommCell and media agent both installed baremetal on a dell server. I understand that it is likely better to have the CommCell hosted on a separate server? If that is the case, which server hosts the index cache and DDB? This will be on a Windows install… would it be an issue running the media agent on a hyperv host with the commcell as a guest vm? Thanks
