  • Virtualization Subclient content - Command line output?
    Posted: 05-31-2019, 8:44 AM

    Have any of you guys seen/found a way to output the content of a VMDK subclient at the command line?

    The closest I found is the GetSubclientConf execscript, but that doesn't appear to play well with VMDK

    Below is an example, this subclient has several VMs listed as content:


    c:\Program Files\CommVault\Simpana\Base>qoperation execscript -sn GetSubclientConf.sql -si c=Vcenter01_VMDK -si a=Q_VIRTUAL_SERVER -si s=Domain

    QScript[GetSubclientConf] CS[pitacm-com01pw] DB[CommServ]

    Qscript Output:

    Client [Vcenter01_VMDK], iDA [Q_VIRTUAL_SERVER], Instance [], Backupset [], Subclient [Domain].
    Property Value
    -------- -----
    Content \
    Global Filters USE CELL LEVEL POLICY
    Schedule Policy Domain - VMDK

    Qscript Execution Succeeded!


    The Commcell Configuration Report has the information, but that report would be a nightmare to try and parse.

    Thanks Gary,


    GetCVVMlist does provide an output, but there is a problem. It lists all virtual machines that have ever been associated. For example, when I ran it against a VMDK client the output included VMs that have been removed from backups for over a year.

    The Get-CVLastBackup command helps here, but as there is no way to pipe the two commands together (that I found at least) then it's a manual process to associate the two.
