Preinstallation Checklist for the Informix Agent on Windows

Use this preinstallation checklist to prepare the computer where you will install the Informix Agent, and to gather all of the information you will need during the installation.

Verify System Requirements

Verify that the computer where you will install the Informix Agent satisfies the minimum requirements. For more information, see System Requirements.

Verify License Requirements

Based on the licensing mechanism used in your CommCell environment, verify that the CommCell has the required licenses to use the Informix Agent. For more information, see License Requirements.

Determine the Installation Location

Install the Informix Agent on the Windows computer that you want to back up. The Informix Agent cannot be installed on cluster environments.

Gather Installation Data

Refer to the items in this section to gather the information that you will need during the installation. Record the information before you begin installing the software, so you can refer to it during the installation.

You can install the Informix Agent using either the CommCell Console or the installation package created by the Download Manager. Any checklist item that applies to only one of these installation methods is noted.

Commvault Package to Install

Install the Informix package, which is listed under the Database category.

Note:

If the File System Agent is not installed on the computer, the File System Core and File System packages are automatically installed with the package you selected. The File System Agent will not consume a license.

To gather the required information for the File System Agent, refer to "Gather Installation Data" in Preinstallation Checklist for the Windows File System Agent.

Client Computer Details

If the File System Agent or another package is already installed on the computer, you are not required to gather all the computer details again. The level of detail depends on how the package you selected is installed, as follows:

  • For installations using the CommCell Console, the installation program requests only the name of the client computer.
  • For installations using the installation package, the installation program reads the details from the previous installation.
