Hi All,


We have some legacy Physical servers which not supported by Commvault. Its mix of Windows/Linux/DB.

Can any one suggest the best workaround to backup those machines using CV?

@Manikandn , can you convert these to vms and use the VSA to back them up?

Create an NFS or SMB mount path and write backups in native forms to that eg. Rear for Linux, DB backup to disk, or Windows backup


Backup mount point using file system agent
