System Requirements for Virtual Server Agent with Huawei FusionCompute

The following requirements are for the Virtual Server Agent with Huawei FusionCompute.

Supported FusionCompute Versions

  • FusionCompute 6.3.0
  • FusionCompute 6.3 and 6.3.1 with standard/traditional SAN/NAS based storage (for example, Huawei OceanStor).
  • FusionCompute 6.3.1 + FusionStorage 6.2 SPC200 (VM storage provisioned on FusionStorage other than SAN/NAS storage). Huawei also packaged this combination as FusionCube 3.1.1 SPC100.
  • V100R006C10
  • V100R006C00U1
  • V100R005C10U1
  • V100R005C10SPC700
  • V100R005C00SPC300

FusionStorage Support

You can deploy Commvault to protect FusionCompute workloads running as part of a hyper-converged solution on FusionStorage.

For more information, see Support for FusionStorage.


The Virtual Server Agent can be deployed on a physical or virtual machine running Windows or Linux.

At least one proxy is needed.

Only machines that have the VSA installed can act as VSA proxies to perform backups and restores.

The following operating systems are supported for VSA proxies:

  • CentOS 6.x, 7, 8
  • RHEL 6.x, 7, 7.5, 8

    Note: For CentOS 8 or RHEL 8 VMs, to install operating system packages that are required to enable automatic installation of Mono, register the VMs with CentOS or Red Hat.

  • Windows Server 2012 R2

Note: When using FusionStorage 6.2, RHEL 7.3 or above is recommended as the VSA proxy operating system.

For Linux proxies, disable lvmetad to avoid issues with HotAdd operations during backup and recovery.


Storage infrastructure can include local disks, NFS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel.

Port Requirements

When the FusionCompute environment includes a firewall, ensure that CVD port 8400 is configured to accept incoming traffic from Commvault.

Open port 7443 on the FusionCompute Virtual Resource Manager (VRM).

Open port 35001 on Compute Node Agent (CNA) hosts.

Hardware Requirements

For information about hardware requirements for the Virtual Server Agent, see Hardware Specifications for Virtual Server Agent.


Third-party maintenance (minor) releases or feature releases that are supported by the Commvault software may not be listed in our System Requirements. When possible, Commvault provides information on any known issues related to these minor releases or feature releases. In some cases, these minor releases or feature releases affect how the Commvault software works. Commvault software may experience changes in functionality as the result of the third-party minor release or feature releases. These changes are beyond the control of Commvault. Platforms that are supported in the current version of Commvault software may not be supported in earlier versions of the software. Contact your software provider to ensure that third-party minor releases or feature releases are compatible with the Commvault software.

Additional considerations regarding minimum requirements and End-of-Life policies from third-party vendors also apply.
