Creating Provider Definitions for SAP LaMa Database Operations

After you complete the Commvault installation, you must perform the following configuration in order to integrate the products:

  • Create Provider definitions for database operations.
  • Register the Commvault script (cvprovision.sh) with SAP LaMa.
  • Create a custom operation or a custom provisioning process for the registered Commvault script.

For more information, see the SAP help Creating Provider Script Registered with Host Agent.
