Snapshots left after CommVault backup job runs

Jump to solution

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?

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.

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

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