I’am migration a server from Windows to Linux, and have a lot of files that needs to be moved. And will use the live sync replication for this.https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/92967_configuring_replication_for_file_system_agents_01.html

 

Each time we try to replicate a file dir from Windows to Linux, all the files is getting skipped.

I can’t find any documentation that this feature is not supported? can anyone confirm/deny this?

If I do it the other way, from Linux to Windows, it works fine.

Hi @AndreasBG 

 

Windows to Unix replication via Live Sync is a supported configuration.

 

Could you please check for any errors in destination Linux machine in system logs along with Commvault logs (clRestore.log / uxfs.log).

 

Alternatively, from Commcell Console, you can view skipped items list for any messages logged once the replication job completes.

 

 

 

Thanks,

Sparsh
