Updating Commvault Software on a Server Group

You can update the software packages for the servers in a server group.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Server groups.

    The Server groups page appears.

  2. To download software updates from the internet (that is, from Akamai), instead of from the CommServe computer or cache, do the following:

    1. Click a server group.

      The server group details page appears.

    2. On the Configuration tab, under General, move the Download software from Internet toggle key to the right.

      If this option is selected, and if the server is configured with automatic updates, then the following will happen:

      • The server will download the software from the internet.

      • The software will be installed on the server immediately.

      • There will be no job ID associated with the upgrade.


        • This setting is overridden by the Download software from Internet > Yes setting at the server level. For more information, see Updating Commvault Software from Server Details page.

        • If a download from the internet fails, the servers will download the software from the CommServe computer or remote cache on the next attempt.

    3. Return to the Server groups page.

  3. In the server group row, click the Actions icon actions button***use the other one ->86655***, and then click Update software.

    The Confirm software update dialog box appears.

  4. To reboot the servers in the server group after the update, move the Reboot if required toggle key to the right.

  5. To perform database maintenance for the CommServe computer and the clients that have server packages installed, such as the Web Server and Workflow Engine, move the Run database maintenance (includes checkdb and reindexall) toggle key to the right. The software performs database maintenance only during the Feature Release installations and skips for Maintenance Release installations.

  6. To receive an email notification about the job completion status, select the When the job completes, notify me via email check box.

  7. Click Yes.
