Copy Software Options (General)

Use this dialog box to copy the Commvault software to the CommServe cache. This operation is useful if you downloaded the software from the Cloud Services website or from the Download Manager application. When you make the software available in the CommServe cache, CommCell users can install the software on their computers by using the CommCell Console.

Review the following considerations:

  • If you downloaded the software from the Download Manager, the download bundles an installation package. Note the following:

    • The installation package must contain all of the Commvault software. The copy operation does not support packages that include only selected software.

    • If you downloaded the software for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers, the installation package groups the software files into two subdirectories: one for 32-bit and another for 64-bit. You must copy each subdirectory individually.

    • You must extract the tar file created by the Download Manager before the copy operation.

    • The copy software operation supports downloaded Windows OS updates and Microsoft SQL Server updates.

  • If the CommServe cache already has the Commvault software, the copy operation will replace old software files with new ones.

  • The CommServe cache directory only supports packages from the current Commvault version. If you have packages from older versions, do not copy them.

  • Cumulative hotfixes are bundled in a hotfix pack that uses the following naming convention: SP n Hotfix Pack (date).

  • You must download the hotfix pack from the Cloud Services website and then copy the pack to the CommServe cache. Do not extract the hotfix pack. For instructions, see Installing Hotfixes.

Save As Script

When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog will have a corresponding XML parameter in the script file. When executing the script, you can modify the value for any of these XML parameters as needed.
