@Onno van den Berg This is a new deployment starting with  Linux CS. and the customer wants to migrate to Windows CS because of a DR replication issue.

Was this a newly installed environment on Linux, or did you migrate in the past from Windows → Linux? Any specific reason to go back to Windows?

Hi @Itzik Skovronek ,


Although the solution provided by Pradeep should work, it is not a fully supported solution as of yet.

The only fully supported solution is a migration from a Windows CS to a Linux CS.


Commvault Support won’t be able to assist if anything goes wrong after a Linux to Windows CS migration has been performed.
