I have some shares set up on some non-ndmp compatible storage, and I'd like to be able to use Commvault to backup the files. I've installed a windows idata agent on my commserve, and have set up subclients pointing to the shares. Things seemed OK, and the jobs were finishing, but no data was being backed up. I tracked it down to some kind of permisions error preventing CV from scaning the folders/files. I then tried adding the CV user to the domain admins group but had the same results. As a test, i created a brand new volume and share and left the permissions defaulting to everyone=full on the share and file system. I put some test data in there and was able to back it up with no errors. I add CV user with full permissions and remove everyone from the file system permissions (leaving the share permissions as they were) and the backup fails. I did narrow down the the everyone group has to have file scan, read, read permissions, etc. to work, but doesn't need full access.
I'm not seeing anything in the logs, other than in a "failed to scan directory due to error 5" in a report I can run on the jobs, but it doesn't tell me what user/service does not have permissions. I don't know if CV is using some other service with different credentials, or if it's on the storage end, but I've run out of ideas.
comserve is W2k3 standard. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
