Backup Agents

The following new features were added to the current software release.

Network Share

Auto-mount Content for NFS Subclients

When you create a new NFS subclient, the NFS export is automatically mounted.

For more information, see Creating a Subclient with Auto-mount Contents for NFS Exports.

Auto-discover CIFS Shares

You can add a backslash (\) to the default subclient so that all CIFS shares from a file server are automatically discovered.

For more information, see Modifying the Default Subclient for CIFS Shares.

Browse for Subclient Content

You can browse for NFS exports when you add content to an NFS subclient, and you can browse for CIFS shares when you add content to a CIFS subclient.

For more information, see Creating a User-Defined Subclient for CIFS Shares and Creating a Subclient with Auto-mount Contents for NFS Exports.

IBM Notes

You can back up and restore data from IBM Domino 10.0.x Social Edition 64 bit for Notes Database agent, Notes Document agent, and Domino Mailbox Archiver agent.


Live Sync Replication of DB2 Databases

Live Sync for DB2 can automatically initiate a replication operation when any kind of backup operation runs on a DB2 database. This keeps the replicated target database in sync with the source database, up to the time when the last Live Sync operation completes.

For more information, see Live Sync Replication of DB2 Databases.


Oracle Agentless Backup and Restore Operations

If you cannot install software on an Oracle database server, then you can use Oracle agentless backup and restore operations, which are traditional streaming operations that you perform from the database command line. For example, for an Oracle server, you can use RMAN.

For more information, see Oracle Agentless Backup and Restore Operations.

Oracle Backups Using Logical Dump Utility

You can now back up the Oracle database using the Native Database Export or Dump utility. This backup is useful when you want to export and import large amounts of data but can also be used for smaller amounts of data.

For more information, see Creating a Subclient for Oracle Logical Dump Backups.

SQL Server

SQL Server Data Masking

Commvault software has industry-standard data-masking strategies for SQL Server database table columns. Use data masking when you want to hide sensitive data in a non-production environment, such as a test or development system.

For more information, see SQL Server Data Masking.

Exchange Mailbox Agent

Case Manager

Use Case Manager for Legal Hold on Exchange and Office 365 Emails.

For more information, see Case Manager.

Delegate Mailboxes and Folders in the Web Console or the Command Center

With the Exchange Mailbox Delegate feature, administrators or end users can delegate their mailbox or the folders in the mailbox without having the delegate access on the Exchange server.

A delegated mailbox is a mailbox that administrators or end users delegate to other users or user groups, who can use it to read and send email messages.

For more information, see the following:

Microsoft Teams

You can use the Commvault software to protect data in Microsoft Teams. This data includes the Office 365 Group mailbox and the SharePoint team site that are automatically created when you create a Microsoft Team.

For more information, see Team Mailboxes.

Deleting Messages

The delete feature allows the admin user to permanently delete any data that was backed up.

You can delete backed up messages from the secondary storage in the following ways:

  • From the Command Center
  • From the Web Console

Hadoop (HDFS)

Extent-Based Backups for Hadoop (HDFS)

Extent-Based Backups integrate extent-based or chunk-based technology to increase the speed of backup operations. Extent-based backups break down a file into small, independent extents. These extents are potentially quicker to back up and are more resilient to network disruptions. Extent-based backups are helpful when the backup content consists of files that are so large that they might cause the available data streams to remain idle.

For more information, see Hadoop (HDFS) Overview - Extent-based Backups.

File System

Perform File System Restores to Microsoft OneDrive

You can use the Windows File System Agent to restore protected data from Windows or Macintosh computers to Microsoft OneDrive.

For more information, see Performing File System Restores to Microsoft OneDrive Using the CommCell Console and Performing File System Restores to Microsoft OneDrive Using the Command Center.

1-Touch for Linux Support for LUKS-Encrypted Disks

1-Touch recovery is supported for LUKS-encrypted disks with LUKS version 1.6.4 or higher.

For more information, see 1-Touch for Linux: System Requirements.

Searching for Files Backed Up Using Backup Sets in the Command Center

When you view backed-up data for your computer using a backup set, you can search for files from the most recent indexed backup.

You can also use wildcard expressions in searches.

For more information, see Searching for Files Backed Up Using Backup Sets.

Active Directory

Support for the Active Directory Application in the Command Center

You can use the Command Center to back up and recover individual Active Directory objects and their attributes. The Active Directory application, along with the Windows File Agent, provides complete data protection for a domain controller and the objects in a domain, including the LDS/ADAM objects and attributes.

For more information, see Active Directory.

Microsoft OneDrive for Business

You can use the Microsoft OneDrive for Business agent to back up OneNote files.
