Enabling Users to Select Access Node for Restores
Commvault supports protection of up to 25,000 individual containerized applications in a single installation. To scale effectively to support large concurrent Kubernetes clusters, a set of access nodes are required per cluster or per site.
To enable users to select a preferred access node for restores, create a dedicated role with Use Proxy permission and assign or associate the user and access node with the role.
