Uninstalling Commvault Locally from a Macintosh Client

You can uninstall Commvault packages from a client computer by using the BackupUninstall application.

Note: If you want to uninstall packages from the command line, use the steps described in Uninstalling Commvault Locally from UNIX and Linux Clients.


  1. Log on to the computer with an administrator account.

  2. Go to the Applications directory, press and hold the Control key while you click the ProcessManager, and then click Move to Trash.

    If you have multiple instances installed on the client, the Multiple Backup Applications detected dialog box prompts you to select the instance from where you want to uninstall the software. After making your selection, click OK.

  3. In the Name and Password boxes, type the user name and password of the administrator account, and then click OK.

  4. In the Successful dialog box, click OK.

    After the packages are uninstalled, the client is displayed as unavailable in the CommCell Browser pane of the CommCell Console.

What to Do Next

You can continue to restore the client data or use the client as a restore destination. However, if you no longer need the client data, you can delete the client from the CommCell Console. For instructions, see Deleting a Client Computer.
