Index Store: System Requirements

The following requirements are for the Index Server.

Operating System

Use the latest version of the operating system software in the Operating System list. Commvault software fully supports the latest version of an operating system until the vendor ends support. Newer versions of Commvault software might not install on operating systems for which vendor support has ended. For information about the Microsoft support lifecycle, go to the Microsoft Support website, Microsoft Support Lifecycle. For support lifecycle information for other operating systems, contact the appropriate software vendor.
