  • 1.  Snapshots left after CommVault backup job runs

    Posted Oct 17, 2011 06:34 PM

    Our virtual infrastructure is all ESXi 4.1, and we use CommVault Simpana as a bavkup solution. For some reason, when CommVault finishes the backup, the snapshot it created does not get deleted. So far, I just do it manually through PowerCLI. Does anyone know if there is there a fix for this, or is it something I'm just going to have to put in a scheduled task?

    I would check with CommVault. Other backup vendors have had similar issues and the solution was with the vendor.

    Definitely speak to Commvault.  With 9.0 there was an issue that was fixed in a service pack (I think SP2) where this could happen.

    Thanks, Guys. I appreciate it. That's what I figured. I needed something to go to the backup boys with.
