 I have some question about mounting storage snapshot on Vmare.

 

Atm we are using 2 Windows MediaAgent to mount storage snapshot to make Intellisnap for Windows Servers and we are using 2 Linux MediaAgents for Linux servers.

 

We are going replace 2 MediaAgents with 2 new Linux MediaAgents. What are the possibilities for mounting storage snaps for Windows servers to make Intellisnaps backup copy? Can we mount it on VM server? Does anyone have same situation?

 

Commserver VR 11.24.3

vSphere Client version 7.0.2.00200

Egor,

You can select it at VMWARE Instance Level, under Proxy.

Or in Subclient Properties:

https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/essential/87225_editing_vm_group_settings_for_vmware.html

  1. Under Snap mount ESX host, expand the tree and then select an ESX server that can be used to mount snapshots for IntelliSnap backups.

  2. Click Save

Best Regards,

Seb
