Registering Commvault Appliance A600

As of Version 11 SP10, Commvault does not sell the A600, A410 or the A210 Appliance anymore. You can purchase the Commvault HyperScale Appliance instead. For more information, see Commvault HyperScale Appliance.

After changing the default Windows administrator password, you must register the Commvault Appliance A600 on the Cloud Service Web site and obtain a permanent license. By default, the appliance is configured with an evaluation license, which is valid for 30 days.

  • To register the appliance and to procure a permanent license, you must have the appliance serial number. Run the following command to view the appliance serial number:

    wmic /node:HOSTNAME bios get serialnumber

    Where: HOSTNAME is the full computer name.

    The appliance serial number will be displayed in the following format:

    C:\Users\Administrator>wmic /node:HOSTNAME bios get serialnumber


  1. On the Desktop, click Start > All Programs > Commvault CommCell Console.
