Hello! I’m currently looking to see if commvault has a configuration that we can set so the user dbs are not being backup on servers that’s being backup. Currently I am following the documentation outlined, Excluding User Accounts from Backups (commvault.com) , but I’m wondering if this can be set as a default settings to exclude user dbs. from backups.

Hey @Evrard,

I’m not an expert in all things google, but “user DBs” is a little ambiguous for me. Do you mean they are storing some sort of database file with specific file extentions in gdrive or am I completely off the mark?

@Damian Andre  This isn’t a google thing. not sure I follow the first part. But you are off mark. I’m referring to the mentioned linked below. https://docs.commvault.com/11.16/excluding_user_accounts_from_backups.html . Is there a way to make the steps outlined in that link default for all servers that’s in CommVault and has a dbs that’s being backup?  The current issue is I have to follow those steps outlined every time we house a client on a server that’s being backup in CommVault.

Can you explain exactly what you’re trying to exclude, and from which agent? Examples may help. 

It’s not entirely clear from your posts.
