    We want to make an automated AlwaysOn cluster creation in Commvault. We have that configured for Windows SQL clusters using pseudo-client create xml template. I couldn't find any information regarding Always On clusters. Maybe someone from the community has implemented automatic build in their environment and could share the xml template?

    Its 3 steps process and you need to know your primary replica.


    Retrieve info from primary replica first by using GetReplica:



    <App_GetAvailabilityGroupReplicasReq availabilityGroup="AvailabilityG1">

                    <sqlClient clientName="ida18"/>

                    <instanceEntity clientName="ida18" instanceName="IDA18"/>



    Retrieve info about availability group by specifying primary replica


    GetAvalibility group:




                    <sqlClient clientName="ida18"/>

                    <instanceEntity clientName="ida18" instanceName="IDA18"/>



    Create availability group with all collected in in 2 previous runs info:


    qoperation execute -af C:\temp\createAGClient.xml




                    <clientInfo clientType="MSSQL_AG">


                                                    <SQLServerInstance clientName="ida18" instanceName="IDA18"/>

                                                    <availabilityGroup backupPreference="2" name="AvailabilityG1" primaryReplicaServerName="IDA18" uniqueId="36E7C0CB-8FA9-4C75-8E09-86896EBD3702">

                                                                    <SQLAvailabilityGroupListenerList availabilityGroupListenerName="ida18_19_Ag1"/>



                                                                    <SQLAvailabilityReplicasList availabilityMode="1" backupPriority="71" connectionState="1" failoverMode="1" name="IDA18" role="1"/>

                                                                    <SQLAvailabilityReplicasList availabilityMode="1" backupPriority="50" connectionState="1" failoverMode="1" name="IDA19" role="2"/>




                    <entity clientName="testag1"/>
