    Hi all, 

    pretty new to using Commvault and have been starting to look after / become involved in Commvault.

    are there options where it is possible to install another comcell instance which is not attached to the live install for experimentation and learning.

    Tinkering with a live systems is a great idea and if you do how do you go about it?

    is anyone simulating a tape drive etc

    you can download the software and install on a VM with a default license of 30 days and after that you need to rebuild it. 

    we do have a tape tool that you can use to create a virtual tape library for testing only.

    see details here -

    If you dont want to keep rebuilding and you have a current support contract you can request they split you current license into 2. We did that for our lab. We took the prod license that was licensed for 520TB and split into one with 518TB and one with 2TB for the lab. We are all disk libraries so tapes wasnt a consideration.
