Allowing a Duplicate Hostname and CVD Port During Client Installation

You can install the Commvault software on computers that have the same host name and CVD port by adding the nAllowDuplicateHostName additional setting. The computer name must be unique.

Before You Begin

To use this feature, the client computer and the CommServe computer must be configured to communicate through a network gateway or by using one-way network connections (client to CommServe). For more information, see Direct Connections and Network Gateway in a Perimeter Network.

Procedure

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the CommServe entity, and then click Properties.

    The CommCell Properties dialog box appears.

  2. Click the Additional Settings tab, and then click Add.

    The Add Additional Settings dialog box appears.

  3. Add the nAllowDuplicateHostName additional setting using the following properties:
