  • CVD.exe stealing RDP port
    Posted: 07-21-2010, 7:10 PM

    So I was troubleshooting an rdp issue on one of my email servers today and uncovered that the cvd.exe process was listening on port 3389.

    Anyone ever run into this issue?

    What is the cvd.exe anyways I'm looking at other servers and I don't see it on every server?

    Hello ipman,


    Sorry to hear about the port hijack! It is odd that cvd would bind to that port...I don't see this condition occur very often and never on a registered port such as 3389.

    You should see CVD.exe on any server that has the commvault agent installed. Below is the definition of CVD as well as a link to all the CommVault services and their purpose

    CommVault Communications Service CVD Provides the ability to fetch or save metadata on the CommServe when data protection or data recovery operations are in progress.


    Is there any intrusion detection software on this machine that may interfere with processes trying to bind to ports?

    Nothing any other server in our enviorment wouldn't have.

    By stopping the cv services and restart ts services I was able to recover the port.

    Then started cv backup and all was fine.

    Possibly happened after a reboot as it looks like it happened on the 17 according to the event viewer.

    Hopefully its a one time thing.
