Downloading Software for Windows Computers Using the Download Manager

You can download the latest Commvault software for Windows computers by using the Download Manager application.

Before You Begin

Obtain the Download Manager application from the Cloud Services website or the Maintenance Advantage website. See Other Software and Packages.

Note: The Download Manager application is available for the last three service pack versions of the Commvault software. Although we recommend that you obtain the Download Manager application with the latest service pack version, you can obtain any version. Remember that the version must be higher than the one that is installed in your environment (that is, you cannot roll back to a previous version).

Procedure

  1. Start the Download Manager application, select where to extract the installation files, and then click Extract.

    The installation wizard opens.

  2. On the welcome page, select the I Agree check box, and then proceed to the next page.
  3. On the Choose the Installation Type page, click Download packages to install on a different computer and proceed to the next page.
  4. On the Select Operating System Type page, select the type of Windows processor that your computers support, and then proceed to the next page.

    For example, if your computers only support 64-bit processors, select the Win64 check box, and then proceed to the next page.

  5. On the Custom Package Install Type page, select one of the following options, and then proceed to the next page:

    Option

    Description

    New Installations

    Use this option in the following scenarios:

    • You plan to install the Commvault software on new clients.
    • You plan to perform a hardware refresh.

      The Download Manager downloads all the required installation files and service pack updates. For Commvault packages that need the SQL Server software, the Download Manager will retrieve Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Standard.

    Upgrades

    Use this option if you plan to upgrade clients from previous Commvault versions. For example, upgrades from Version 10 to Version 11.

    For Commvault packages that use the SQL Server software, the Download Manager will retrieve Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise. This SQL version is needed to upgrade clients that have SQL Server 2008 Enterprise (or earlier versions).

    Service Pack Installations

    Use this option if you plan to install service pack updates or additional agents on an existing client.

    Note: If you plan to install Commvault packages that need the Microsoft SQL Server (such as the CommServe), select New Installations.

  6. On the Select Package Option page, select whether you want to download all packages or specific packages, and then proceed to the next page.

    Notes:

    • If you plan to copy the software to the CommServe cache, you must download all packages. Specific packages cannot be copied to the cache.
    • If you want to download all packages, select the Include MS SQL Server check box. The Microsoft SQL Server is needed by the CommServe and other server packages.
  7. On the Download Location page, specify the location where you want to download the installation package, and then proceed to the next page.

    Note: Make sure that the download location has enough disk space available to accommodate the software that you want to download. If the download location is not the system C:\ drive, you must have at least 1 GB of free space on your system C:\ drive to accommodate cached download files.

  8. Based on the option selected on the Select Package Option page, choose from one of the following steps:
    • If you chose to download all packages, a status page is displayed showing the current operation and a progress bar. If you cancel the download or if the internet connectivity is lost, the application allows you to resume the unfinished download from the point of failure.

      Continue with Step 11.

    • If you chose to download specific packages, continue with Step 9.
  9. On the Select Packages page, select the Commvault software that you want to include in the installation package and then proceed to the next page.
  10. On the Custom Package Options page, complete the following steps:
    1. If you selected the CommServe, Metrics Reporting, Web Server, or the Workflow Engine, make sure that the Include MS SQL Server check box is selected.
    2. If any of the agents you selected requires .NET Framework 4.0, select the Include .NET Framework 4.0 Installer check box.
    3. Proceed to the next page.

      A status page is displayed, showing the current operation and a progress bar. If you cancel the download or if the internet connectivity is lost, the application allows you to resume the unfinished download from the point of failure.

  11. On the Install Status page, click Finish.

    Note: As a best practice, keep the installation package up to date, or at the same service pack level as that of the CommServe computer.
