  • Our storage array is GONE. Now what?
    Posted: 02-16-2015, 8:30 AM

    Without going into the sordid details our storage array suffered unrecoverable problems and all the data is lost.

    The CommServe itself (v8.0) is fine and is communicating OK with clients themselves, it's just that there is nowhere to back any data up to while we rebuild the array with some replacement drives.

    I just wanted to solicit any advise/feedback/potential caveats from the CV experts in preparation to getting us backing up again with our CommCell.

    Thanks in advance.

    What's your backup environment size?

    Hi FC, hope you are well.

    Did you have any aux copies going to disk or was your "storage array" the only place backup wrote data to?
