In situations where Commvault software packages were obtained through a reseller, the default OEM license package might not include the Hardware Snapshot Enabler license, which is required for VSA application-aware backups.
To resolve this issue, update the identifier for the OEM in the database:
- Run the following query with the Commvault OEM identifier as input:
qoperation execscript -sn UpdateOEM -si oem_id
qoperation execscript -sn UpdateOEM -si 115
- Retry application-aware backup jobs.
For more information, see UpdateOEM.
