Enabling WORM Storage and Retention for Cloud Storage

You can enable WORM storage and retention for cloud storage.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Storage > Cloud.

    The Cloud page appears.

  2. Click the cloud storage for which you want to configure WORM storage mode.

    The cloud storage page appears.

  3. On the Configuration tab, in the WORM section, do the following:

    • Enable WORM storage lock

      1. Move the WORM storage lock toggle key to the right.

        The Retention rules page appears.

      2. In the Retention period option, specify the amount of time to retain the backups, and then click OK.

        The Do you want to enable WORM storage lock? dialog box appears.

      3. Select the options to confirm your agreement, type Confirm in the confirmation box, and then click CONFIRM.

        Note

        • Both WORM storage lock and compliance lock will be enabled on all associated backup destinations. This action is irreversible and you cannot lower the retention.

        • If you enabled WORM storage lock unintentionally, we recommend you to create a new storage pool with a new storage pointing to a new container or bucket.

    • Enable only Compliance lock

      1. Move the Compliance lock toggle key to the right.

        The Do you want to enable Compliance lock? dialog box appears.

      2. Select the option to confirm your agreement, and then click YES.

        Note

        • Compliance lock will be enabled on all associated backup destinations. This action is irreversible and you cannot lower the retention.

        • If you want to enable WORM storage lock for a cloud storage on which compliance lock is enabled, contact Commvault support and obtain the authorization code to disable compliance lock and then enable WORM storage lock.
