    Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this question. I am completely new to CommVault, and was tasked with being the administrator for our organizations CommVault system. I am just trying to find out if there are any training resources out there that I can utilize so I can figure out my way around the system and be able to ensure backups are being done.


    I can usually figure things out pretty fast just browsing around, but everything seems so complex with this system.

    Start poking around in the documentation and pay attention to the results of the daily job summary reports that should be scheduled to get an idea of the day to day.\ocumentation.htm


    Your account rep should be able to help you get scheduled for training.

    There is a bit of a learning curve but perhaps the quickest way you can inspect the environment is by using the Commvault Command Center (formerly known as Commvault Admin Console).  It is a HTML5 web front to the Commvault application with slick dashboards that can provide you with easy insight into what has been backing up and a failing.  It runs off the Commvault Web Server (which may also be your CommServe Server) with a url something like http://commvaultwebserver.yourdomain.local/adminconsole.  You can also access the Command Center/Admin Console by logging into the Java UI and clicking the Web Console button on the tool button "Web Console".  Get yourself trained up, but if you can get into the Command Center/Admin Console first it will certainly help.
