Application Seed Packages

You can create an application seed package, which is useful for deploying different agents and configurations across multiple computers.

An application seed package consists of a set of files that installs the Commvault software, and can also install additional Commvault features without requiring the installation media to reside locally on the computer. Instead, it uses the Commserve software cache to get the files that are needed for the additional features.

When an application seed package is deployed on a computer, the package creates a shortcut (for Windows operating systems) or a shell command (for UNIX operating systems) that can be used to invoke the Roles Manager, which helps the user add roles to the existing product.
