We have a scenario where the following occurs, managed by a popular scheduling application on a server somewhere
1 - Scheduling app logs in to the application server (VM) active node and stops <application_service>
2 - Scheduling app kicks off maintenance tasks take place on the Active Node with the application stopped
3 - Scheduling app runs PS Script to tell Commvault via our CV “API Server” home brew with Web Console and other components installed to take VM backup of the app Active node with services stopped
4 - once backup done, sends result back to PS script and if 0 (success) then the script restarts the application service on the active node
Problem - This is all unnecessarily complicated by the presence of the ‘homebrew CV API server’ which was built and has no docs.
I need a better, aka simpler, way. If the VM subclient cold run pre-post scripts, perfect, but it cannot. Any suggestions please? With details. Thanks
