    Thanks to another post, I came across a link about building a standby commserve.

    What kind of license (if any) is required to set this up?

    What we've done, within our business, is to create a virtual server at our DR site with commvault installed and configured as required that is shutdown (only one of the commvault servers can be up at a time with the same IP due to licensing). From here, on our production commserve, we run the DR job to copy the files to the DR site.  In the case of a disaster we fire up the standby server, restore the DR data created for the comcell and off we go.

    Not sure if this might help you.

    Thanks, your information was helpful.  I have moved the Commserve to new hardware when upgrading and as I can recall it's similiar to what you describe.  I was confused when I came across the link I posted for creating a standby commserve. 

    I think I may understand now, the instructions for building a standby would be if you have the license that allows you to have more than one commserve name - so you can fail-over when needed.

    If you don't have the license, then you would do as you describe, if your hardware is down you can restore the DR data to the standby equipment.

    Does that sound correct?
