Setting Up a Container as an Access Node

You can use a Kubernetes container as the access node for your Kubernetes backups in Commvault.

Before You Begin


  1. To install the config chart, run the following command:

    helm upgrade --install config commvault/config --set csOrGatewayHostName=cs.commvault.svc.cluster.local --set secret.user=installuser --set secret.password=password --namespace commvault

    The config chart contains the config map for all of the Commvault component chart installs. You must always install the config chart before a new chart installation.


    By default, the config chart deploys a container with cvpatcher service. This service facilitates the automatic upgrading of container clients whenever an installation upgrade job is triggered from the console.

    If you do not want to deploy the cvpatcher service, then add the following parameter to the helm upgrade command: --set cvpatcher=false

  2. To install the access node chart, run the following command:

    helm upgrade --install accessnode commvault/accessnode --set clientName=accessnode --set global.image.tag={tagvalue} --namespace commvault
