Cluster Support

You can install the software on a cluster, if clustering is supported by the operating system. For information about supported cluster types, see Support for Cluster Configuration.

Hard Drive

Windows

1 GB minimum disk space is required for software installation.

256 MB is required for the job result directory.

256 MB is required for the log directory.

Linux

2 GB minimum disk space is required for software installation.

256 MB is required for the job result directory.

256 MB is required for the log directory.

AIX

3 GB minimum disk space is required for software installation.

256 MB is required for the job results directory

256 MB is required for the log directory

Solaris Containers and Zones

You can back up and restore data in both global and non-global zones.

For a list of supported components, see Unix Virtualization.

AIX LPAR/WPAR

Data protection on Logical Partitioning (LPAR) and Workload Partitioning (WPAR) is supported.

PowerPC Processor Support

Commvault supports both of the 64-bit PowerPC architectures: ppc64 (or "big endian") and ppc64le (or "little endian"). For SuSE Linux, the ppc64le PowerPC architecture is supported on SuSE Linux 12 SP1 Enterprise Server or more recent releases.

Miscellaneous

SELinux

If you have SELinux enabled on the client computer, create the SELinux policy module as a root user before performing a backup. The SELinux Development package must be installed on the client.

To create an SELinux policy module, perform the following steps as user "root":

  1. Create the following files in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory:

    File Name

    Content of the File

    <directory>/<file_name>.te

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.te

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    policy_module(<name>,<version>)

    ##############################

    where:

    <name> is the name of the policy module. You can give any unique name to the policy module, such as a process or application name.

    <version> is the version of the policy module. It can be any number, such as 1.0.0.

    For Example: While creating a policy module for the backup_IDA application, you can use the following content.

    policy_module(backup_IDA,1.0.0)

    <directory>/<file_name>.fc

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.fc

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    Note that the following list of files is not exhaustive. If the process fails to launch, check /var/log/messages. Also, if required, add it to the following list of files.

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCTreeWrapper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCVMAGuiImplgso -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2locale.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2osse.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDb2Sbt.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2trcapi.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDrDatabase.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libIndexing.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libSnooper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)
     

  2. Create the policy file from command line. Use the following command. Ensure that you give the following commands in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory.

    [root]# make backup_IDA.pp
    Compiling targeted backup_IDA module
    /usr/bin/checkmodule: loading policy configuration from tmp/backup_IDA.tmp
    /usr/bin/checkmodule: policy configuration loaded
    /usr/bin/checkmodule: writing binary representation (version 6) to tmp/backup_IDA.mod

    Creating targeted backup_IDA.pp policy package
    rm tmp/backup_IDA.mod tmp/backup_IDA.mod.fc
    [root]# semodule -i backup_IDA.pp
    [root]#

  3. Execute the policy module. Use the following command:

    [root]# restorecon -R /opt/<software installation directory>

SELinux is now configured to work with this application.

.NET Framework

.NET Framework 4.0 is automatically installed. Note that .NET Framework 4.0 can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 is Automatically Installed

Starting in Service Pack 18, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 (vcredist2017.exe) is automatically installed. If a computer does not have the latest Windows updates, the installation of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 will fail in installing Universal C Runtime.

The following Windows updates must be installed to prevent the installation failure:

KB2919355

KB2939087

KB2975061

KB2999226

Updates are not required on latest Windows operating system versions, such as Microsoft Windows 10 and Microsoft Windows Server 2016, as these versions come with the Universal C Runtime already installed.
