Hard Drive

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

No additional disk space required beyond File System Agent disk space requirements.

Memory

4 GB RAM minimum required

Processor

Intel Pentium, x64 or compatible processors

Peripherals

A CD-ROM drive or ability to boot from an ISO image file is required to boot the client for recovery.

Operating System Utilities

For a list of operating system utilities required for 1-Touch, see FAQs - Operating system utilities to perform 1-Touch recovery.

Bootloader

Supported file system and volume manager types

  • Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) Version 2

    Unencrypted LVMs are supported.

  • B-tree File System (Btrfs)

    Only 1-Touch recovery on similar systems and Virtualize Me are supported.

  • Second Extended File System (ext2)
  • Third Extended File System (ext3)
  • Fourth Extended File System (ext4)
  • Reiser File System (reiserfs)
  • XFS

Note: Snapshot volumes will not be recovered as part of the 1-touch recovery. Hence, it is recommended that you mount and back up the snapshot data.

Supported VMs

  • VMware
  • Microsoft Hyper-V*
  • Oracle VM**
  • Kernel-based VM for Linux (KVM)
  • Citrix Xen guest VM**

*Host operating system version of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Editions or higher

**For Oracle VM and Citrix Xen guest VM, perform recovery using the 1-Touch for Linux - UEFI procedure. For information, see 1-Touch for Linux - UEFI.

**For in-place restores of Citrix Xen guest VMs or for restores to another VM running on Citrix Xen, perform recovery using the 1-Touch for Linux - UEFI procedure. For information, see 1-Touch for Linux - UEFI.

**To migrate Citrix Xen guest VMs to a non-Citrix Xen environment, see Migrating Citrix Xen Guest VMs to Another Hypervisor or Physical Host.

Notes

CommServe

  • To enable 1-Touch recovery, the Force per-client certificate authentication on CommServe option has to be turned off on the CommServe at least for the duration of the recovery. This option can be accessed from the CommServe Control Panel by clicking on Certificate Administration.

Client

  • iSCSI disks are supported for Virtualize Me; all the backed up iSCSI disks will be re-created as regular SCSI disks on the virtual machine if they are selected during restores.
  • iSCSI disks are not supported for 1-Touch. These disks need to be manually unselected during interactive restores if any iSCSI disks are backed up.
  • SAN disks are supported for 1-Touch and Virtualize Me. For Virtualize Me, as FC HBA (Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter) virtualization is not supported, multipath SAN disks will be re-created as regular SCSI disks.
  • 1-Touch supports native Linux multipathing. Vendor specific multipath implementations are not supported.
  • 1-Touch recovery and Virtualize Me for Hyper-V is not supported if the virtual machine is generated using the Generation 2 specification.
  • For VMware ESX 6 or higher versions, set the Virtual Machine compatibility to 5.5 or higher (Virtual Machine Hardware Version 10) during the creation of the virtual machine.
  • Itanium (IA64) processor is not supported.
  • 1-Touch recovery is supported on clients with Linux kernel executable in vmlinuz-* format.

DISCLAIMER

Third-party maintenance (minor) releases or service packs that are supported by the Commvault software may not be listed in our System Requirements. When possible, Commvault provides information on any known issues related to these minor releases or service packs. In some cases, these minor releases or service packs affect how the Commvault software works. Commvault software may experience changes in functionality as the result of the third-party minor release or service pack. These changes are beyond the control of Commvault. Platforms that are supported in the current version of Commvault software may not be supported in earlier versions of the software. Contact your software provider to ensure that third-party minor releases or service packs are compatible with the Commvault software.

Additional considerations regarding minimum requirements and End-of-Life policies from third-party vendors also apply.
