Installing the UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh File System Agent on a Client Computer

You can install the UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh file system 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:

  2. For installations using the CommCell Console, install the File System package, which is under the File System category.

    For installations using the installation package, install the File System package.


    • By default, regardless of the installation method, the File System Core package is automatically included in the installation.

    • 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.

    • By default, the software binaries are installed in /opt/commvault. You can change the directory to a different local directory or to an NFS share. If you decide to use an NFS share, make sure that it is always mounted and accessible by the Commvault software.

  3. For installations on Linux clients that will also serve as a proxy to an OpenVMS client or an IBM i client, also install the File System for OpenVMS package or the File System for IBM i package respectively.

What to Do Next

  • Review the tasks that you must perform after the installation. For more information, see Postinstallation Tasks for Clients.

  • To perform the required agent configurations, refer to the Getting Started page of each agent that you installed.
