Installing the SAP for Oracle Agent on a Client Computer - UNIX and Linux

You can install the SAP for Oracle Agent using either the CommCell Console or the installation package created by the Download Manager.

Before You Begin


  1. Choose one of the following installation methods:

    Remote installation: You use the CommCell Console to install the software remotely on a client computer. For more information, see Installing Commvault Remotely Using the CommCell Console.


    If you have a third-party application (for example, Oracle) installed on your client computer, you can configure the CommCell Console to automatically detect the application and install the required Commvault software. For more information, see Installing Commvault By Enabling Automatic Detection of Applications Installed on Clients.

    Local installation: You use the installation package to install the software locally on a client computer. For more information, see Installing Commvault Locally on UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh Computers Using the Installation Package.

  2. For installations using the CommCell Console, install the SAP for Oracle package, which is under the Database category.

    For installations using the installation package, install the SAP for Oracle package.


    • If the File System Agent is not installed on the computer, the software automatically installs the File System Core and File System packages with the package that you select. The File System Agent will not consume a license.

    • For more information on the package options and to gather the required information for the File System Agent, refer to "Gather Installation Data" in the Preinstallation Checklist for the UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh File System Agent.
