  • CDR and stub replication
    Posted: 10-16-2019, 1:11 PM


    Been performing some testing using CDR and OnePass. (archiving/stubbing)  At first glance, CDR seems to replicate the stubs without issue, the filenames appear at the target and the NTFS attributes are maintained. (APLO) However, when attempting to access the file to trigger a recall, it doesn't work.  For example, if you click on a .txt file, it brings up an empty notepad.  If you click on a .html file, it brings up an empty explorer tab.  After further investigation using GXHSMUtility, it appears that the target stub is corrupted.

    Running GXHSMUtility on the target file produces an error:

    c:\Program Files\Commvault\ContentStore\Base>.\GXHSMUtility.exe -view "F:\E\cat.txt"

    Using Instance:Instance001,gbl_ExtInstanceType:0wmain(12867): -Error-: Failed to open reparse file F:\E\cat.txt;EN=0

    Running GXHSMUtility on the source file works just fine:
    c:\Program Files\Commvault\ContentStore\Base>.\GXHSMUtility.exe -view "E:\cat.txt"
    Using Instance:Instance001,
    Reparsedata size=201;Data=

    Has Galaxy Tag = Y [29]
    Is in Archive = Yes [Y]
    MigrationTime=1571239408 = Wed Oct 16 11:23:28 2019
    MigFrn=0; CurrentFrn=562949953421381; [***Not Equal***]

    According to the documentation, I believe that CDR is supposed to support stubs but it appears not.  Can someone please confirm?
