Configuration of the Export Destination for Disaster Recovery (DR) Backups

Disaster Recovery (DR) Backups are executed using the following phases:

  • Export

    During the export phase, a metadata backup of the SQL databases is copied to the default staging directory located in software_installation_directory\CS_DR.

    Recommended: Store the DR backup in a network location that is accessible from both the CommServe hosts. Use an UNC path to access the location. Local disk or local clustered disk is not safe and is not a common practice.

    Additional export destination can be setup to a local or network path.

    Note that a copy of the metadata can also be automatically exported to the Commvault Cloud Services website whenever a DR Backup is performed. This is in addition to the network share or local drive specified for DR backups.

  • Backup
