Licensing Control Mechanisms

Licensing control mechanisms enforce the licenses that you purchased inside the software.

You might need to add a new license in the following scenarios:

  • You are using an evaluation version of the license and the license is about to expire.

    Evaluation licenses are valid for 60 days. You can choose to extend the expiration date or to obtain a permanent license.

  • You want to add more Commvault products to your CommCell environment.

  • You want to change the branding settings of the Command Center. For example, display your company name and logo in the console.

License Summary Report

You can monitor license usage by viewing the License Summary Report. Any license that your organization purchases is visible in this report. Information about how usage is calculated is located with the information for the License Summary Report.
