For information on supported cluster types, see Clustering - Support.

Hard Drive

1 GB minimum of hard disk space for installing the software.

1024 MB of free disk space is required for the tmp directory.

To calculate the disk space requirements for the job results directory, see Job Results Directory Disk Space Calculation.

500 MB of free disk space is required for log directory.

Commvault supports both the 64-bit Power PC architectures, ppc64 (or "Big Endian") and ppc64le (or "Little Endian").

Miscellaneous

Schedule Jobs Using a Client Computer's Time Zone

The client computer has to be in one of the standard time zones recognized by the CommServe. Otherwise, the CommServe does not get updated with the client computer's time zone and the jobs scheduled using the client computer's time zone might not run.

SELinux

If you have SELinux enabled on the client computer, depending on the configured mode and policy, you might need to create a SELinux policy module. See SELinux Configuration.
