I am looking for a way to automatically perform a sample of VM restores on daily\weekly basis from the most current backups from them. Long story short, I ran into a data integrity issue on one of my libraries and had no idea. I.E. VM Baselines were referencing a chunk on the library that did not exist. Therefore, any restores that referenced that baseline kept failing. I have my backups set to full instead of synthetic full which future backups never indicated a backup failure. Since this incident, I would like to start routinely validating that VM restores actually work. Plus this was on a CV Ransomware webinar slide earlier this month about validation😊. It does not look like this can be done natively within Commcell. Or can it? It looks like the road to go down is the use of the Commvault PowerShell module and calling upon APIs. Does anyone perform this kind of validation today? How do you accomplish this?
