    We have lots of remote sites, wherein it backups locally first then AUX copy to the main DC.

    I have to configure the remote media agents (disk library, DDB, Storage policy etc) 500 times.

    Its a repeatable task but I don't want to do it manually. What's the best way to do this. One part of it is already solved, when they deploy the OS, it will include the commvault software which points to the commserve environment we have in the main DC

    commvault powershell?

    I would probably go with using Workflow with XML ( you could just XML alone as well). In addition REST api calls can be used The link below shows examples on how to create a disk library and Storage policy at the same time. We have XML to handle what you need to do.

    Commandline -

    Workflow -

    hope this helps and have a good day.

    if you are interested in PS doing this that can be arranged as well.
