our task is to implement Quantum ActiveVault feature in the Commvault environment. ActiveVault should create a special room (for the tapes) inside the tape library, that is not visible for any (backup) application. According to me, in CV we should adjust schedule policy or create VaultTracker policy, that moves full tapes to I/E (and then to defined export location). Once the tape is in the I/E slot, the quantum tape library can mark this tape as part of special room and the tape looks like it is outside from CV point of view. Then, once data are aged, an administrator has to manually move tapes to I/E by clicking in the GUI environment of the tape library. The thing is, how to find out, which tapes should be moved back to library since they are aged.I think, it is necessary to have Due back for reuse policy type, isnt it? So, firstly run a report to find tapes for return, secondly move manually tapes in management console of the library and lastly run VaultTracker policy? Am I right? Please correct if necessary.
Do you have any experience with Commvault and ActiveVault, in general?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
