Repairing an Installation on a Client Computer Remotely by Using the CommCell Console

You can repair a Commvault installation on a client computer remotely by using the CommCell Console.


  • For Windows client computers, you can perform the repair operation even when you cannot reach the computer because of CVD service problems.

  • For UNIX client computers, the CVD service must be running in order to perform a repair.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers, right-click the Client, and then click All Tasks > Add/Remove Software > Repair Software.

    The Repair Software Options dialog box appears.

  2. Select the Enter system credentials check box, and then specify a user account that has administrative privileges on the client.

  3. Click OK.
