Limit Access to the Software Installation

To prevent ransomware from encrypting the Commvault install folders, lock down those folders to only the Commvault service account and prohibit System Administrators from using that account unless absolutely necessary.

You create the Commvault service account in the CommCell environment during the installation of the CommServe software. Only the Windows administrator account that is also the Commvault service account user should have access rights on the Commvault software installation folders. For more information about creating and managing Windows accounts, see the Microsoft Windows Server documentation.
