    I would like to know if there is any best practice tweaks for CIFS using Windows Media Agent with Netapp Disk library with CIFS presented as mount path.  

    Are there any Windows CIFS parameters/configurations and also Network switch/router parameters to ensure CommVault is more resilient to intermittent connection lose to CIFS share etc.

    Any suggestions/URLs and any resource is appreciated

    Hi ftd

    For CIFS presented from NetApp arrays there aren't really any strict requirement and is largely base on how the environment is setup. 

    If there are points of latency between MediaAgent and the actual storage, you might need to look at timeout parameters from the filesystem layer, so read/writes wont fail. 

    Also need to consider the maximum amount of open connections (incase NetApp has a limit), so connections won't be refused

    Here is a good starting point -

    Overall it would be good to see if there are any limits on the Storage first and see if these parameters can be tweaked
