Installation Media

Shortcuts and services are reinstalled as a part of service pack installations.

The display names and icons for the shortcuts and services are set as per the brand information that is available in the installation media.

To use the existing brand images, you must copy the images to the installation media in the following folder:

Installation Media Folder/Common/OEM/ID/install_images

where Installation Media Folder is the location that you specified during the creation of the installation package or the location of the Software Cache directory.

DR Backup Job Management

To ensure successful completion of DR Backup jobs, 2 Full and 1 Differential DR Backup can now remain active at any given time. Subsequent Full or Differential DR Backup jobs will fail to start with a message stating that a 'job is already running'.

Previously, multiple DR backup jobs were queued, resulting in no job progress due to circular dependencies.

Storage policies

Change in Default Block Size

The following changes are available for the block size of the storage policy and the global deduplication storage policy:

  • A newly created deduplicated storage policy or global deduplication policy with a cloud library as the data path will now have 512 KB as the default block size. This enhancement is to improve the read performance from the cloud storage. 

    Previously, the default block size of a deduplicated storage policy or a global deduplicated policy that is associated with a cloud library was 128 KB.

  • A newly created secondary copy using a global deduplication policy (irrespective of the primary copy block size) with a cloud library as the data path will now have 512 KB as the default block size. When the block sizes are different between the primary copy and the secondary copy, then the Disk Read Optimized Copy option will be processed as the Network Optimized Copy option.
  • A newly-created deduplicated secondary copy will honor the block size that is set on the storage policy properties. 
  • For a newly created deduplicated storage policy or a global deduplication policy with a disk library as the data path and associated secondary copies with cloud library as a data path, during the auxiliary copy operation, the higher block size is honored (regardless of where it is set).

    For example, if the primary copy that has a disk library as the data path has 128 KB block size, and if the associated secondary policy copy has a cloud library as the data path with 512 KB block size, then the block size of the secondary copy is honored during the auxiliary copy operation.

Automatic update of the global.ini file and symbolic links

When you perform your first backup, the Commvault software automatically performs the following configuration.

  • Creates a symbolic link that points to a parameter file created by Commvault called “param” under the SAP “/user/sap/<SID>/global/opt/hdbconfig” directory.
  • Creates a symbolic link that points to the Commvault SAP backint binary called “hdbbackint” under the SAP “/usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/opt” directory.
  • Updates the global.ini with the correct parameters based on your Multitenant Database Container configuration, for example SAP HANA 1.0 or 2.0
