Setting Up High Availability CommServe Host for an Existing CommServe Server

You can set up a High Availability CommServe Host for an existing CommServe server.

Step 1: Plan for High Availability CommServe Host Setup

Verify that the prerequisites needed to setup the environment are available before setting up the High Availability CommServe Hosts. For more information on the components needed to setup High Availability CommServe Hosts, see Planning for the High Availability CommServe Host Setup.

Step 2: Upgrade the Existing CommServe Server to the Most Recent Service Pack

Upgrade the existing CommServe to the most recent Commvault service pack. For more information on the latest service pack and how to install it, see Service Packs.

Step 3: Install the CommServe Failover package

The SQL Server Agent and the CommServe Failover package must be installed as a separate instance. For more information on installing the CommServe Failover package, see Installing the CommServe Failover Package.

Step 4: Install the Standby CommServe Host

Install the Commvault software packages on the standby CommServe host. For more information on installing the packages on the production CommServe host, see Installing the Standby CommServe Host.

Step 5: Enable the LiveSync Operations

Enable the CommServe LiveSync feature which facilitates CommServe Recovery Using High Availability CommServe Host. For more information on enabling the LiveSync operation, see Enabling CommServe LiveSync.

Step 6: Verify the Default Setup

Verify the setup from the production CommServe host to ensure that the default components are installed and configured properly. For more information, see Verifying the Default Setup.

What to Do Next

Perform a production failover to switch the CommServe server from the currently active CommServe host to a standby CommServe host. For more information on performing production failovers, see Performing Production Failovers.
