    We want to rename a database within the recovery job, often get tickets there a database should be restored from a production sql to an dev sql and they want a new name on the restored db like db_test.

    When we create a restore job and run it commvault logs that this isnt supported to rename the files ony the path, see attachment png

    There are some limitations of using VSS SQL backup/restore.

    VSS has the following restrictions:

    • During a restore operation, databases can be moved to a new location on the same SQL Server instance and renamed. Data files cannot be renamed.
    • To avoid potential issues with restore operations, make sure all database files are located under folders or directories and are not located on the root of the volume.
