Modifying SAP HANA Subclient Properties Using the Commvault Command Line Interface

Use XML to modify subclient properties. Run the operation from the command line, or automate configuration by combining command line operations in a script.

The XML parameters can be included in the XML file, or specified on the command line when they frequently change. For more information on command line parameters and XML elements, see Command Line - Syntax.


  1. On the SAP for Oracle Agent host, run the qlogin command to log on to the CommServe computer.
  2. Download the update_subclient_template.xml file and save it on the computer where you will run the command.
  3. Open the update_subclient_template.xml file, add your specific parameters and save the file.

    For information on supported subclient XML parameters, see SAP HANA Subclient XML Parameters.

  4. On the command line, go to Software_Installation_Directory/Base and type the command.

    qoperation execute -af xml_path\update_subclient_template.xml -appName 'SAP HANA' -clientName '<client_name>' -backupsetName '<backupset_name>' -instanceName '<dbname>' -subclientName '<subclient_name>'

  5. Run the qlogout command to log off the CommServe computer.


Renaming a Subclient

To rename a subclient, set the following elements:




The SAP HANA new subclient name (in this example, 'new_name')

qoperation execute –af update_subclient_template.xml -appName 'SAP HANA' -clientName 'pierceSI3' -backupset_name 'defaultBackupSet' -instanceName 'SI2' -subclientName 'old_name' -newName 'new_name'
