We are currently in the process of making the Commvault environment more usable for customers.
The administration of the individual systems in Commvault is to be managed via Active Directory.
We include the AD groups in Commvault and create in Client Computer Groups per AD group a group with the name of the AD group.
All systems from the VSA data backup pools are linked into the group.
The main portal for the clients will be the WebUI.
Now I have linked a VM from the VSA subclient to the group of an AD for this project and it looks like it could work. But currently I can only restore the last backup of a VM. For backups a few days ago, the "Restore" button is grayed out.
Has anyone here already made experiences or perhaps a better suggestion, how this could be better implemented?

We need to use the VSA and Indexing V2. Our current environment still uses V1. Our service provider has advised us to upgrade our test environment to 11.24 and run some tests here. If everything works, we should update our production environment to 11.24 as well.
I guess that when we update to 11.24, version 2 of VSA and Indexing will be applied automatically.
VSA does not automatically migrate to V2 indexing, only when you create a new virtualization client will V2 get enabled on that new client. Its a complete overhaul of the framework, so there is no in-place migration, but there is a migration workflow that will copy all the settings from your original client to the new client to allow a more seamless transition. The jobs will not migrate over, so they will hang around on the old client until meeting retention.
