Looking for some help in regards to backing up a SMB share from Isilon
using CommVault as the backup software.

to the Windows server, everything looks good. However, if we restore
back to the Isilon through the Windows server proxy, we lose
Anyone else doing this? Any thoughts on why we would lose permissions
on files/folders by restoring back to the Isilon SMB share through a W
Windows proxy server?
Please check if permission inheritance is enabled on Isilon folder where you are doing restore as all files will inherit permissions from parent directory.
Also you can set permission on a temp directory which you want and try a restore and see if that works fine.
