  • Reconfiguring a client server and run a Backup
    Posted: 04-11-2018, 3:28 AM

    Hi All,

    We are using CV11 SP10.

    Recently a client server have been De-configured

    and we tried to reconfigure the client server.

    I made the below changes in Registries as mentioned below.

    I used the Commvault stop for the Commvault software services on CL systems before making the changes to the .properties files.

    1. Under /etc/CommVaultRegistry/Galaxy/Instance001/Session/.properties

     nChatterFlag entry value set to (0) (Zero) default value.

    2. Under /etc/CommVaultRegistry/Galaxy/Instance001/Commserve/.properties

    In sCSHOSTNAME entry value _Disabled_ is removed infront of the CS Hostname

    3. Under /etc/CommVaultRegistry/Galaxy/Instance001/Firewall/.properties

    The nDISABLE_CVFWD entry value is set to (0) (Zero) default value.

    4.  I used Commvault start to start the Commvault services.


    Check Readiness is ready.

    Commserve hostname is missing in client properties.

    There is no "Restart all services" and "Push Network configuration" options availble in client All Tasks options.

    I suspect that reconfiguration is not happened properly.

    Any suggestions please.


    Thanks in advance

    Hi Digit

    From the description that was provided I am assuming that you are deconfiguring from an old server and then reconfiguring the client on another new server. 

    Usually the client properties will be stored in the CommServe DB, so when you do want to do an hardware refresh, you should first uninstall the client on the old server using the "Add & remove" software, and then just install the necessary binary to the new server, ensuring it contains all the right client and hostname .

    By doing so it should inherit what is already setup on the CommServe side. 

    I wouldn't really recommend to play around with the registry unless you are absolutely sure the setting that you are applying is correct. 

    If you can provide more details to your scenario we can definitely suggest more 

    Thank you

    You just want to do a reinstall. Same steps as OS upgrade without the actual OS upgrade.

    If any data exists from the previous server make sure you run a manual FULL backup or the schedule will fail as existing incremental data exists. I ran into this issue myself recently.
