Configuring Settings for a Server Group

You can configure settings that are specific to a server group from the Command Center. The following settings are displayed in the Settings tile of the Configuration tab in the Command Center for the server group entity:



Visible to Tenant Administrators

Allow backups to succeed if subclient/VMGroup is empty

Enable or disable backups of non-default subclients to complete successfully if there are no virtual machines in the content.

Allow read-less auxiliary copy

Allow optimizing the signature lookup process by setting up the local source-side disk cache on the source MediaAgent.

Cache Dedupe signatures on source machine

Enable source-side cache for DASH copy.

Disable location tracking

Disable or enable tracking the geographical location of all the clients in the server group.


Do not backup Dedupe DB if snapshot of volume fails

Allow Dedupe DB backup job to fail or proceed when it cannot create a snapshot. Value 0 allows the DDB backup job to proceed with the backup from the live volume, but the Dedupe DB is frozen for the duration of the backup phase.

Data transfer pipeline buffers

Set the number of pipeline buffers.


Use Microsoft Software Shadow Copy VSS provider

Forces the Windows File System agent to explicitly use the Microsoft Software Shadow Copy VSS provider in the presence of other third-party providers for streaming style backups.


QoS Priority through DSCP (networking)

Set the DSCP values to adjust the Quality of Service (QoS) of the Commvault network traffic. Supported DSCP values are from 0 to 64.


Paths to filter from anomaly monitoring

Specify a path that you want to skip from anomaly monitoring. To specify multiple paths, use semi-colon (;) separated values.

Additional interfaces to connect to CommServe

List the CommServe interfaces (on both production and standby nodes) for clients to connect to, without relying on the DNS.

Exclude extensions from anomaly monitoring

Specify an extension that you want to skip from anomaly monitoring.
