Search Engine

The Search Engine is used to content index data.

Recommendations for Deployment

The following chart describes recommendations for where to install the Search Engine, Compliance Search, and their necessary components in your environment. We do not recommend installing the Search Engine on the CommServe computer.

Before you begin any deployment, ensure that your servers meet the minimum requirements for the software you want to install.



Server 1

  • Search Engine

  • Virtual "Search Only" nodes

Server 2

  • Web Server

  • Compliance Search

Server 3

  • CommServe software

  • Web Console


In a large environment where end users restore data through the Web Console, the Web Console should be moved to a dedicated physical or virtual server.
