Commvault to Azure Cloud storage

    Question

  • In Commvault we are trying to setup Cloud storage and when we select Microsoft Azure for our storage provider it asks for a Container as part of the setup.  Anyone know what part of the properties in the Azure Storage account is considered the container?

     

    Thanks in advance,

  • Container is part of Blog storage which is one of storage structures of Azure storage. Container is used to organize blobs. More information about blobs is available here.

  • Commvault is requesting a Base Folder in which the mount path stores data.  I tried creating a random name for the base folder, but it fails with this error when connecting to what I believe is our Azure storage account "[Cloud] There is a name lookup error"

     

    It appears as if I need to have this folder created w/in the container of the the Blob already.  I used a third party tool to create the container, is there a way to create a base folder within the container using an existing tool rather than coding something? 

     

    Thanks in advance,
