We are running 11.28.36 in AWS environment. The commserve sits in a Management VPC and Couchbase is running in our Production VPC. In the Production VPC, we have a media server (proxy server) that runs VM and Cassandra backups to a local S3 bucket.I have the URL for the Couchbase API Server and an admin userid/pass.I am looking for what ports are required from the Proxy(Media server) to the Couchbase server(s). We have a tunnel setup so that we can load the Couchbase software on the required servers, ThanksChuck
We have a storage account with private endpoint connection configured, we tried to IAM role to backup this storage account, but got errors and not able to configure the backup. 3984 1e88 12/08 16:46:13 ### [cvd] == cURL Info: OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to xxxxxxxx.blob.core.windows.net:443 3984 1e88 12/08 16:46:13 ### [cvd] == cURL Info: Closing connection 0 other storage accounts without private endpoint are working fine
Good Day @everyone,quick question,we’re trying to move the s3dfsRootDir for Live Mount Operations to a dedicated drive.When Specifying the key: https://documentation.commvault.com/additionalsetting/details?name=s3dfsRootDiras an additional setting to the Mediaagent, we are not able to specify the location. If we put a value like D:\3dfscache into the key, the GUI displays, that the string is outside of the dictionary values. So I left the value “string”… But I am completely unsure where to define the actual location.Does someone struggle this behaviour?Best regards
Hello CommunityWe want to save a VM backup “Commvault Version 11.28.73 of a virt.Windows 11 VM under Nutanix AHV Version el7.nutanix.20220304.423, but unfortunately that doesn't work. A snapshot can not be set “Internal server error” and this error message appeared here:Description: Unable to create a virtual machine snapshot of [windows11-testvm]. [Internal Server Error.] Please check the virtual machine snapshot tree.Source: cvcs, Process: JobManager
Hi Community,In addition to the normal CV backup, I have the challenge of backing up the "virtual machine files" (*.vmdk, *.vmx, ...) on a stand-alone NAS, in an independent Commvault format.My idea was to restore existing backups via a dedicated proxy on which the NAS NFS shares are also mounted.Manually, via CommmandCenter, this works fine, but I would like to schedule it periodically with a monthly backup/restore procedure.Do any of you already have experience of how this could work?I would be happy about any answer ….
we have a ovm manager in that 3 nodes are added , we created proxy in one of the node and we are able to backup vm in the same node and for vm in other nodes getting below error Unable to attach disks for virtual machine [arc-orauat-db] to the proxy. arget Repository: is not presented on server do we need proxy in each nodes ? do we need to configure ovm as one with ovm manager or adding hypervisor ip also we have oracle rac server with shared disk how to take full vm backup of both
We have 1 FREL for each VMware cluster we’re using on CV 11.20.We’ve noticed the FREL trying to reach public IP addresses with NTP packets but we cannot allow that through our firewall.I logged onto the linux console but found that the ntpd service was not active and then it occurred to me that as an appliance, the configuration should be applied by the Commvault client.We have a highly available NTP service available that I’d like to point these clients at and would appreciate some guidance on how to configure them.
If I add a “Premium SSD V2” disk to an existing Azure VM (or during creation of a new VM), backup fails with error message “Unable to create a virtual machine snapshot of [CL3]. [One or more errors occured]. Please check the virtual machine snapshot tree”.networkaccessAccessPolicy is “AllowAll”, publickNetworkAccess is “Enabled”. There is no problem with “Premimum SSD” disks.First I’d like to ask, if this type of disk is generally supported by Commvault backup. I can send a full log of the backup job.Commvault V2023E. Thank youJiri.
Hello everyone, I'm in a situation that's causing me some discomfort. I have 15 VMs located in one region and I need to replicate these VMs to another region, all within the Google Cloud environment.To do this, I'm using 1 MediaAgent to perform the backup and replication operations. However, I'm noticing that it takes a very long time to complete the entire replication process, taking around 15 hours to complete successfully. The first time running the Job, Commvault said that the Application Size was of 7.22TB. And in the last incremental, the Application Size it’s of 112.44GB. Because of this long time, I’d like some tips to help reduce this time, if there’s any documentation that can help. Thanks, 🙂.
Good morning,I’m trying to wrap my head around the following case:Let’s say there are two virtual machines, each with one 100 GB VMDK file (let’s ignore other files such as swap, etc. for the sake of this example). Each OS consumes 30 GB in total (Windows + Data).VM A - VMDK 100 GB, filled with 30 GB of data, thin provisioningVM B - VMDK 100 GB, filled with 30 GB of data, thick provisioningThe question is: will the full backup for VM A and VM B be of the same size (more or less) regardless the provisioning configured for each disk?The idea behind this question is to know whether thin provisioning speeds up the backup process and consumes less storage at the end of the day (especially considering that we’re running out of backup storage).Regards,
Hello Community, The domain controller is currently hosted in vCenter. Our plan involves replicating the domain controller from one site to another using Commvault VMware Live Sync.Questions :Is Commvault support this, and are there any considerations specific to DC live sync? Our primary concern around the trust relationship. If the source DC VM becomes unavailable and we need to power on the replica in the DR site without the latest replication, there's a potential risk of breaking the trust relationship? Are there any other critical aspects we should take into consideration in this scenario? thanks
i would like to know how the restore works , considering i have a full backup on weekend like Saturday and then daily incremental . now i want restore from last Wednesday , how the restoration works ?system go for the last full backup and then check the incrementals then convert it as a full backup and restore , or do we need to do it manually ??
Hello,We have a couple of servers which utilize RDM disks in VMWAre. These servers can’t have snapshots taken (as per errors in CV) because of these disks, even with disk filters applied.These servers are SQL servers, we need to protect the SQL data via the agent as per standard. We also need to protect the OS & D drive for ease of restoring these VMs. Based on the fact we can’t take snapshots, I need to protect the VM via the file server agent too.I attempted to install the file server agents over the SQL agents but it removed the SQL agent and put the file server agent in place instead.Is there a ways to leverage SQL & File Server agents at the same time?Thanks in advance
Hi Commvault community! Does anyone know if commvault has any paper for the case below?Does CommVault have implementation best practices documentation for backing up VMs on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure?Backup/restore performance involving Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is very slow. In the backup configurations of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, there are no features like there are in VMware so that we can adjust and improve performance.Is there anything we can do on the CommVault side to improve performance?In VMware, we tested restores with a throughput of > 200GB/h. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's throughput is always less than 40GB/h using the same servers.This makes an OCI native VM of only 50GB take more than 1 hour to restore. We don't have bottlenecks between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and CommVault because the entire Commvault architecture is built inside Oracle Cloud.Does anyone have similar infrastructure with backups and OCI? Thanks,Heitor
Hello!I’m new on this community, but I’m a CommVault user since 2015. Glad to be here and nice to meet you all!Today I had to urgently (as usual) restore 2 VMs, then I got an email from VMware team saying: “Hey, you missed to write custom attributes on the restored VMs!”Looking at the VMs I noticed that they were right and VMware Custom Attributes were empty. We have +1500 VMs and we use them to keep a log of who installed it, when, which app is running on etc etc.So finally my question is: is there a way to include certain VMware custom attributes in the VSA subclient? And of course restore together with the VM? I don’t want to include all, only the ones I care of.Thanks in advance Stefano
Hello,Restore Guest files from the primary Netapp storage works perfectly but not from the secondary storage (snapvault destination).From the list of snapshots, the snapshot is failed to mount.On “Browse and Restore”, error is : Unrecognized error 30On primary Cluster Ontap, Datastores are on FCP LUN.On secondary Cluster Ontap, Primary LUN are replicated on volume.I suppose we have to configure the secondary Cluster, what do we have to do , LUN FCP, LUN ISCSI, NFS Volumes ? Where the snapshot is mounted on the destination, on MA, Esx or FREL ? Thanks in advance for your replies,Gilles
Hello, AllSo, i have this concern and i am looking to get back to the customer as soon as possible.They are backing up virtual machines that are as big as 32TB.They want the backup for those VMs to complete within 1-2 hours.What kind of infrastructure should be put in place to achieve this?
HelloApparently, after successfully backing up some VMs (VMware), commvault is requesting disk consolidation several times in a row (without waiting the first request to finish).This sometimes is causing the VM to be unresponsive. Commvault is being proactive but it is causing downtimes to the environment.1 - can I disable this feature (commvault starting consolidation tasks for the VMs that needs consolidation)?2 - can Commvault skip this VM? I read that commvault would skip VMs that needs disk consolidation. But I am not sure if this is really happening.regards,Pedro
Hello,I observed, that using a schedule to initiate a syntheticFull, with run incremental backup before selected, against a Vmware virtualization subclient (vcenter - vmware - backupset - subclient) is failing.running syntheticFull only, triggers synFull backups for all protected VMs of that subclient.can someone explain the purpose of this additional setting: bEnableVSASnapSynthFull ?according to the documentation this is set to a default of: false.BRKlaus
Hello, I am considering deploying FREL’s from OVA to be configured as Access Nodes in a VMware Backup solution.https://documentation.commvault.com/2023e/essential/143780_deploying_vmware_file_recovery_enabler_for_linux.htmlIn the environment there will be a production network and a backup network. Do FREL’s support the installation of a 2nd NIC to meet this requirement? The FREL must be able to talk to the vCenter on the Production Network and transmit the Data to the MediaAgent on the backup network (achieved by using a DIP). thanks in advance for any assistance!
