Preinstallation Checklist for the 1-Touch Server on UNIX

The 1-Touch Server secures the required information from the client's backup and then uses this information to re-create the client environment during 1-Touch recovery. For more information, see Overview - 1-Touch for UNIX.

Use this preinstallation checklist to prepare the computer where the 1-Touch Server will be installed and to gather all of the information you will need during the installation.

Verify System Requirements

Verify that the computer where you will install the 1-Touch Server satisfies the minimum requirements specified in the system requirements page for your operating system:

Verify License Requirements

Based on the licensing mechanism used in your CommCell environment, verify that the CommCell has the required licenses to use the 1-Touch Server. For more information, see the license requirements page for your operating system:

Determine the Installation Location

Install the 1-Touch Server on the computer where you want the required information from the client's backup to reside. The 1-Touch Server cannot be installed on cluster environments.

Gather Installation Data

Refer to the items in this section to gather the information that you will need during the installation. Record the information before you begin installing the software, so you can refer to it during the installation.

You can install the 1-Touch Server only by using the installation package that was created by the Download Manager.

Commvault package to install

Install the 1-Touch Server package.


If the File System Agent is not installed on the computer, the File System Core and File System packages are automatically installed with the package you selected. The File System Agent will not consume any license.

To gather the required information for the File System Agent, refer to the Gather Installation Data section in the Preinstallation Checklist for the UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh File System Agent.

Client computer details

If the File System Agent or another package is already installed on the computer, you are not required to gather all the computer details again. The level of detail depends on how the package you selected is installed, as follows:

  • For installations using the CommCell Console, the installation program requests only the name of the client computer.

  • For installations using the installation package, the installation program reads the details from the previous installation.
