Planning to do a hardware refresh of Commvault environment running livesync.  I would appreciate some advice on how this can be done.
Reasons for doing the refresh is as follows:
1. Upgrade to Commvault v11.32 
2.  Commvault currently running v11.20 with SQL 2012 as the backend
3. OS of Commserve and DR Commserve need to be upgraded from Windows 2016 to Windows Server 2022

Anyone who has done similar initiatives ?  What are the caveats and steps on how to implement this?
